Let It Go, Let It Go! Let Go My Ego. . . .

Let off is a big deal. Pianists love just the right amount of let off; it makes those pearly whites feel amazing under your fingers as you tickle the ivories. This is how we do it, by putting a magnet against the strings and adjusting the jack so it disengages the hammer 1/8″ from the strings.
