Schaller Piano Hinge Frame - ATD 152yrs


A true soul crafted piece, conceived from the overwhelming desire to make good use of an irreparable 150 year old German upright piano. Precision engineered and delicately assembled, the piano is an instrument of manufacturing beauty. Truly remarkable are the efforts expended into the mechanics of such a piece which we have made good use of in our world first externally sprung temple hinge.

Custom jigging and 2 axis freehand adjustment makes this not only our most precious frame but also the most complex to manufacture, each piece warranting a full days craft to ensure precision operation. Our efforts reflect the respect which we mutually share for the designers, engineers and woodworkers involved in the original Schaller production. Always working with the existing and appreciating the skills of our forefathers is our imperative.
