About this item:

  • UPRIGHT PIANO ACTION WHIPPEN: A piano whippen is the primary working mechanism in the piano action, which includes the jack (the escapement mechanism). The whippen is responsible for conveying upward movement and delivering the shank and hammer to the string when you press down the key.
  • WHIPPEN TYPE OPTIONS: Choose the whippen type you need above:

            Whippen Styles:

            * Whippen for use with stickers
            * Whippen for use with dowel type capstans

  • DAMPER SPOON DIRECTION: Toward the back of the whippen is the damper spoon. When the back of the key rises, the whippen pivots and the damper spoon pushes the damper away from the string. Choose the direction you need for the damper spoon above. This will be the direction the damper spoon leans as looking from the front of the whippen (facing the backcheck).

            Spoon Direction:

            * Spoon to the right
            * Spoon to the left

  •  WHIPPEN INCLUDES: Complete upright piano whippen for replacement of worn or broken piano whippen. Includes the damper spoon, whippen flange, jack, backcheck and bridle wire. 

            * Whippen Flange - The whippen body rotates on the whippen flange, which is supported by the whippen flange rail.
            * Jack - The jack is attached to the end of the whippen and rotates in the jack flange.
            * Damper Spoon - The damper spoon pushes the damper lever.
            * Backcheck – The backcheck catches the catcher.
            * Bridle Wire – The bridle wire or rod is where the bridle straps are attached.
