We stock a full range of piano hammer heads, both German (Abel) and Japanese (Imadegawa). These hammer head sets are available in many standard sizes, both pre-bored and un-bored, and with Hornbeam or Mahogany cores. The Abel range includes also special sets for specific pianos (Yamaha, Kawai, Steinway, Bechstein, Bluthner, etc.), and the standard range is available in both regular and Natural Felt (in which the felt is enzyme-washed to better preserve the integrity of the felt). The standard range includes five different lengths of piano hammer for straight-strung pianos.
We offer also a ┬ápiano hammer Custom-boring Service. Many of our customers prefer to have the hammer heads custom-bored to supplied samples, so that they can then be fitted with a minimum of regulation. What we then require are the end hammers from each section (together with the shank assemblies, so that both angles of boring can be accurately determined), and the number of hammers in each section. The selected hammer head set is then expertly custom-bored by Mr Emanuel Rey, a Swiss-trained Sydney piano builder and technician with over 35 years’ experience in the industry. On request, the hammer heads can also be cut and shaped if required.
