Fazioli Hammer Re-profile

Time to re-shape the hammers on this Fazioli 228. Also, the client needed a brighter, richer sound – so re-profiling the heads exposes a deeper, harder layer of felt, as well as creating an appropriately narrow and thus accurate striking point.

Once the re-shaping is done, each head must be fitted to each unison (its corresponding 1,2 or 3 strings), and then evening out of the sound from note to note can begin.

The result: a much brighter, more dynamic instrument, which hopefully appeals to a broader range of pianists and musics.
