About this item:

  • NEEDLE PIANO VOICING TOOL FUNCTION:  With time and use, most pianos become more brittle and harsh. The majority of voicing requests are for pianos that are softer and have a broader body. The needles in a needling tool are simply placed into the piano hammer. The insertion of the needle "fluffs" the hammer felt, making it less compressed, because piano hammers are made of felt stretched and glued around a wooden hammer mould. The needle acts to give increased body or sustain in other sections of the hammer head.
  • DESIGNED FOR GRAND PIANO STRINGS: The other voicing tool is this single needle voicing tool, which is designed to fit down between the strings of a grand piano, so if you're just doing some final touch up voicing and need to poke a few hammers, this is a good one to be able to reach down between the strings of a grand piano and poke into the hammer as needed.
  • HANDY SINGLE NEEDLE PIANO TOOL: If you're doing grand piano voicing, this is a great tool to have because you can play it without having to remove the entire action and do the voicing with the action and the pianos.
  • REPLACEABLE NEEDLE: The set screw holds the needle in place so that it can be replaced if it breaks. If you're getting one of these needle voicing tools, it's a good idea to acquire several replacement needles so that if one breaks, you'll have some spares. And it has a tool on the end for loosening and tightening the set screw.
  • PIANO TECHNICIANS RECOMMENDED: The #1 choice for Piano Technicians for voicing individual hammers on grand pianos without the need to remove the action.
