Cutoff Bars and Other Rim Modifiers

This photo shows some of the types of rim modifications that I can install in your piano. Alternatively, I can supply the wooden components for you to install. Three items are shown here: an upper bass area cut-off bar; an additional brace for the high treble belly rail area; and a treble rim modification. Any of these types of modifications can be built for you to your specifications.
This belly mock-up shows a curved, laminated cutoff bar in the bass as opposed to the two-section straight cut-off in the picture above.
Please contact me to discuss how Farrell Piano can craft rim modifications to optimize the resonant properties of the soundboard in your restoration project.
