Regulating the Stack
to the Piano Action

Reference Materials

For a more detailed explanation -click here.

For the time being, I'll just let the video do the talking. There are others things that I want to add to this page, but I don't have the time right now. There will be another video placed on this page after I finish editing it and uploading it to YouTube. However, the one below has all the basics. BTW, this video features the Standard stack with the "flexible fingers".

Part 2 (below) endeavors to explain why there is generally such a difference in the amount of lost motion in the three basic sections of the player mechanism (bass, tenor, and treble). It should also be noted that making this simple adjustment reduced the amount of effort (pumping) required to make the music play by one-half. And, although it is not shown in the videos, the lost motion adjustment and the let-off adjustments, in the action of the piano, were done before the stack (windchest) was put in place, to begin the regulating of the stack-to-action lost motion adjustment.

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.
