Just wondered if you could give me some advice. Just bought a beautiful Knight K10 piano. I love it, but one thing I didn't look at before I purchased it was the condition of the hammers. I've attached some pictures, and would like to know your opinions. There are some developed groove cuts into the hammers but the overall shape seems to have kept OK. Would this be enough to affect the tone of my piano? It is quite bright, may this possibly be the cause?
I have another small issue with a few keys which are double striking. When some keys are played very softly, the hammer touches the string again leaving a tinny, muted sound. The dealer has told me this will be remedied when the tuner comes in a few weeks. Has anybody had this problem before?
As to the double striking that is regulating problem, looks like the piano need a good service about 4 to 6 hours provided there are no other issues with the action like centres or key bushings
