9781330114162: Regulation and Repair of Piano and Player Mechanism: Together With Tuning as Science and Art (Classic Reprint)

Regulation and Repair of Piano and Player Mechanism – Together with Tuning as Science and Art is a work authored by expert William Brad White.

Player pianos, sometimes referred to as autopianos, were gaining in popularity in the early 1900s, necessitating a book about their servicing. Regulation and Repair of Piano and Player Mechanism is a resource guide for individuals tasked with repairing these large and rather complex instruments. The work focuses specifically on the pneumatic player, which was the standard player piano at the time. The book itself is rather brief and is divided into two sections. The first section deals with the regulation and repair of the piano, focusing on technical aspects the serviceman must be familiar with. Part two details tuning, and is intended not only for the serviceman but also the technically minded owner of a player piano.

William Braid White's title is an effective overview of the regulation and repair of a player piano. While player pianos are scarce today, those that are in use certainly require upkeep, and thus this book will remain of interest to individuals tasked with working on these challenging instruments. This work will also appeal to readers interested in music history, as White captures a time when the appeal of automated instruments was perhaps at its greatest peak.

Regulation and Repair of Piano and Player Mechanism – Together with Tuning as Science and Art is a detailed guide to servicing a once popular musical instrument. While the prevalence of player pianos has declined greatly since the beginning of the twentieth century, there remains a need for literature on the topic. If the subject matter of this text is of interest to you, White's book is a worthwhile read.
