The seminar will cover the explanation of the most popular pin blocks materials and the frequently used tuning pins. We will elaborate on the most popular mistakes made in pin blocks and bass bridge tips in pianos and grand pianos. We will empirically prove that tuning pins with the same dimensions yet various manufacturers present stronger resistance in the pin block’s wood which results in the alteration of the pin block’s sustainability and the tune’s stability. We guarantee that nobody will fall asleep during the seminar.
