The author, having written three prior books regarding restringing pianos, one devoted to grand pianos, was urged to write a comprehensive set of stringing scales. Not only did many manufacturers responding to his request for their particular scales relating to their products, but many piano technicians did the same. The result is this book, written in two parts. Part One describes the restringing procedure, figuring scales, and working with pin blocks, sound boards, and other important steps. Part Two gives general information regarding stringing scales which includes an A-Z set of scales by piano manufacturer. Also included is an index. The binding is light green with a grand piano drawn on the front. The lettering is black. One corner is a bit worn, and there is a hand-written scale tucked in. A few places have a short line drawn at the edge of a block of print in Part One. ; Charts; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 272 pages
