Viennese fortepiano

This instrument was made by John R. Bennett and Jake Kaeser in Stonington, CT., 1979.
It has been restrung in Malcolm Rose English iron and brass, and the hammers have been re-leathered.
Additionally, the escapement lever cushions were removed and replaced, substantially reducing the sound of the lever's return to rest position. The damper system also required a complete overhaul, and the action has been meticulously restored and regulated.
