As mentioned, these new parts were fitted on to the Bechstein that was to be part of the piano hire stock of The Piano Restoration Company. Fox Studios bought the piano to wreck in the movie Superman. Jim, the owner had the action sitting around for 4 or 5 years after that, before he gave it to me as a peace offering. I'm happy to pass the parts on, as they enhance the top two sections. It might entail more serious work to adapt the parts to the tenor and bass sections though, as the angle of the drilling was different. It's not hard to change the angles, all that is needed is time. The other piano was a concert-grand, with longer tenor and bass strings, set at different angles. As I said, the angles can be changed - it's a process that happens more often than you'd think.
