Organ and Piano Page
Retro Electronics and Audio Lab,
We had Michael Sherrod do a tuning on this piano at the new studio...he does a very good job and we recommend him to anyone who needs piano tuning or repair (our specialty is on electronic organs).

This piano is in use at our B street studio.
Lester "Betsy Ross" spinet piano. This piano works well but the sustain pedal had got snapped off. As a temporary repair, we removed the center pedal (bass sustain) and retrofitted it to the sustain pedal position. A common failure mode of these pianos is the degradation of the plastic elbows used to couple motion from the key stickers to the action. However this one's elbows appear to be in good shape.
