  • 00:05:00 The piano in this video is from the 1830s and is in excellent condition. The cover plate, which goes in front of the keyboard, has been repaired multiple times due to moths eating away at the cloth parts. The pins that hold the strings in place are also original and have been well-maintained. Despite the repairs and care, there are still some issues with the piano, such as a loose hammer and a slipped tuning pin. However, by using a few drops of water to fix the issues, the piano has been reliable ever since.

He is not sure if the noise is because the leather has hardened or because the poles have been replaced over the years. He plans to try graphite or another type of dry lubricant on the poles to see if he can improve the noise.
