Hammer Rail Hinges in
an Upright Player Piano

The only purpose for this page is to show people what hammer rail hinges in an upright player piano look like and where they are located. I many cases, the screws that hold these hinges in place get loose and cause a 'ticking' sound every time a hammer near the hinge returns to its resting place (or returns to the hammer rail). This ticking can be hard to track down because the sound travels up and down the hammer rail. The sound is often misdiagnosed as loose hammer heads or loose hammer flanges. So, knowing that these hinges can and do get loose can save a technician or owner a lot of grief. They are easy to tighten with an offset screwdriver without removing the player or piano actions.

A few lousy pictures, but you get the idea....

Since "Player-Care" is an internet business, I prefer that we correspond via E-Mail (click here to fill out the 'Request Form'). However, if I'm not in the middle of some other activity, you can reach me at 732-840-8787. But please understand that during the hours from 8AM-5PM EST (Mon-Sat), I'm generally quite busy. So, I probably won't answer the phone. If you get the answering machine, please leave a detailed message stating the reason for your call. Also, repeat your name and phone number clearly and distinctly. By necessity, I prioritize everything in my life. And, if you call and just leave your name and number, and ask me to call you back, it might be a day or two before I return your call. Why? Because I don't know why you want me to call and I might not be prepared to assist you in an effective and efficient manner. If you leave me an E-Mail address (which I prefer), spell it out phonetically. The more you do to help me, the more I can help you in return. Don't rush. You have four minutes to record your message.
