1959 Story and Clark, 7ft grand piano. A resonator (in another picture) was
glued to the soundboard in an attempt to make it louder. The opposite happened
as the soundboard couldn't vibrate.
The previously doped hammers are replaced with a fresh set of German hammers. Doping
the hammers was another attempt to make the piano louder.
The resonator removed, but the top of it kept. It was of superb craftmanship, but wrong for a piano.
It took two Dremel tools to remove it.
To get to the resonator, strings come off. Once removed, the strings return.
Remaining scars. To completely remove them would have reduced the soundboard crown,
which would make the piano much more quiet.
