Many people have asked me what to do about 'the musty smell' of
old pianos. I'm not a scientist so I don't know exactly what causes the
problem. My belief is that it comes from mildew. Being a fungus, mildew
can be killed by bleach. However, bleaching is an oxidation process
and therefore might be harmful to the integrity of the wood.
In many cases, I've used a solution of 1:20 bleach and water and a rag. Soak the rag and then ring it out. Then wipe the effected area.

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.
