We just started work on refurbishing an old Apollo grand piano. There was a small section of the bridge where the cap had cracked and come loose. Often this will cause problems with the tone of the notes in that area. This crack wasn’t causing any audible problems, but it needed to be repaired to make sure it didn’t get worse. We removed a few strings, took off the broken piece, and glued it back in place. It still needs some cleaning up, but now we know it won’t add any unwanted noise to the many songs that will be played on this piano.
