Book Description Scolar Press, 1978. Hard Cover. Condition: Vety Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. Dust jacket complete, unclipped, small mark to front. Original cloth boards with bright gilt titling on spine. No ownership marks. Photographs and illustrations. 100 pages clean and tight. Any pianist, argues Eric Smith, will play all the better for knowing how his instrument works. Any piano owner will benefit from the knowledge of what can go wrong and how to keep his valuable instrument in good order. In this absorbing, heavily illustrated, first ever do-it-yourself manual, he explains for the non-technician the relationship between the act of pressing a key and the production of a complex and satisfying musical note. But suppose the note is far from satisfying, even downright unmusical? What if it fails to sound at all? Mr. Smith contends that the workings of the piano are far from mysterious once we understand its mechanics. He provides a guide to techniques of tuning and adjustment, and a detailed account of common faults and how they can be rectified. Even if an owner hesitates to service his piano himself, he will now have the knowledge which will enable him to talk to professional tuners and technicians with authority. Size: Oblong 9½" - 7" Tall. Seller Inventory # 142692
