Our new piano

From the Rischler site page.

Action: Direct blow action, rock maple wood parts.
Tuning Pins: Nickel plated steel, machine cut, blue steel.
Hammers: Imported Royal George felt, UK.
Keys: Sold spruce, ivorene cover.
Plate: Precision cast.
Finish: Polyester, 4 coats of polyester resin, two coats of polyurethane.
Soundboard: Cross banded laminated quarter sawn select spruce.
Pinblock: 22 layer ply block beach wood by Dehonit, Germany.

Ours is shinier, whether that makes it more beautiful or not. It certainly makes it look more dusty faster.
