Piano Hammer Voicing

Today, I repaired a piano in Albert Park, a suburb of Adelaide, where the hammers had become dry and were producing a really harsh, metalic sound. To rectify this, I used a process known as 'voicing' which basically changes the physical structure of the hammer felt in order to give the piano a more nicer, mellow tone. Tonight I was playing around on youtube and found this really great short film on 'voicing' piano hammers, check it out...
