The Sostenuto Pedal

The Sostenuto Pedal

There has never been said any words in the piano industry that are more divisive than “But does it have a middle pedal?” Why are these words divisive? Because the middle pedal on the piano is the least used and yet most focused on in the piano industry. I’ve often told the story about one of the greatest jazz pianists in my city, when he was just signing the papers to purchase a beautiful grand piano, he stopped and turned to me and said, “Glen, I’ve just got to ask… What does the middle pedal do? I get asked because ...

Mapes Piano String Company - How Piano Strings are Made

Mapes Piano String Company – How Piano Strings are Made

Stephen Mapes established the Mapes Piano String Company in 1912 and shortly thereafter in 1918 it was purchased by John Adam Schaff. Now 4 generations later and employing 125 people in a space of 200,000 square feet, Mapes produces piano wire for many of the pianos we play on today. This month I had the pleasure of sitting down with Andy Wilson from Mapes to discuss some of the basics of piano string making. Glen Barkman: Mapes is the oldest piano wire maker in North America. How old is the Mapes company? Andy Wilson: Mapes is not only the oldest ...

Interview with Piano Designer Del Fandrich

When you short list prominent piano designers in North America, you will always run into Del Fandrich. His career has spanned nearly 5 decades and has been a contributor in companies such as Baldwin, Charles Walter and most recently Young Chang. Years ago he worked his way up from (as he calls it) 'grunt work' to concert technician. Most noteworthy is his experimentation and implementation of floating soundboards. Although there are numerous topics we could've discussed, this one I find particularly interesting and hopefully we'll have him back to discuss some other interesting (and rather groundbreaking) ideas he has in ...

Estonia Piano Company Redefines Tone

Have you ever heard of the company called Estonia Piano? Appropriately they are named after the country in which they reside. Haven't heard of the country of Estonia? They gained independance from Russia in 1991 and eventually became part of the European Union. Situated across the water from both Finland and Sweden, Estonia has been actively making pianos since 1893. This month I had the wonderful pleasure of skyping Dr. Indrek Laul (CEO of Estonia Piano). Although we've only met twice in person, he is a pleasure to converse with and if you could only sit where I sit, you'd ...

Musical and Mechanical Basics of the Sustain Pedal

Musical and Mechanical Basics of the Sustain Pedal

I remember teaching my kids how to drive a car. At first it’s a bit daunting putting a young adult in a 2 ton vehicle controlled primarily by a gas pedal. Over time, the confidence and competence increase. What remains somewhat of an accepted disconnect, however is HOW that process works. You put your foot on a small pedal and ‘magically’ the vehicle moves. Similarly, piano pedals are like that: if you step on the sustain pedal (the right pedal), the sound of the piano is transformed. Today, we’re going to delve into a bit more of the mechanical side ...
