Muzio Clementi Square piano London 1822 with Harmonic Swell
6 octaves FF-f'''' - English double action
2 Pedals : dampers lift - Harmonic Swell (reverberation bridge)
Photos taken after its arrival. Some hammers were out of order, a very few broken, porcellain was broken and dirty. Of course the whole piano had suffered so much dust and keys (which are made of bone) were too yellow. Many strings were replacements, done in an unpleasant way. The soundboard, pinblock, dampers and the whole structure was relatively in wonderful condition though.
