Quote from: Abraham on December 09, 2011, 08:13:33 AMThank you Steve. My piano didn't have white felts but only paper shims on the balance rail. If I put white felts on, key height increases to a point where there's a gap under the keys. I know this is not what's expected. So we have a 1976 suitcase, plastic hammers with -originally- white felts below and bare flat pedestals. It seems that, at some point someone applied the old-fashioned miracle mod as described in the service manual. Maybe they took wrong measures, so hammers may be resting too high because of the bumps not being in the right spot, and causing all that mess. So that I'm ordering a miracle mod kit and I would reset all pedestals, getting rid of those white felts. Then we'll see what's happening...
