Diaphragmatic soundboards and hexagrip pinblocks have been common in most pianos since the expiration of the patents. Accelerated action was used until the 1980s by Steinway New York. Never used in the Hamburg, Germany, factory, accelerated action is no longer preferred by top pianists. Call us to discuss your restoration options.
