The Magnetic Balanced Action

The Magnetic Balanced Action was invented by Evert Snel and Hans Velo about nine years ago. A couple of manufacturers offer it as a factory-fitted option — Fazioli comes to mind. It can also be retrofitted to existing grand pianos. What’s even more interesting is that it is available in Singapore from Emmanuel & Sons, at a cost of between SGD5,000 and SGD7,000. Needless to say, installing the MBA into a piano still under warranty will instantly void the warranty. (Heck, even tuning your own piano voids the warranty!)
