Viennese fortepiano

This instrument was made circa 1785, very likely by Karl Benedict. Having undergone a previous restoration, I have remedied some errors made by a well meaning but poorly informed technician.  The beak leather, prell springs, prell hinges, and a few poorly spliced hammer shanks have been replaced, and the hammer line has been corrected.
