The Omega gets its second service

Last Thursday 20th June Walter Haas dropped by to service the Sauter Omega. He was in Singapore as the piano tech for the Singapore International Piano Festival, held at the School of the Arts (SOTA) auditorium, and had already spent two days getting the relatively young (2 years old) Steinway D into shape.

Walter arrived at 9am and stayed for about three hours. The action didn’t need regulation, but the hammers needed voicing, particular the A5-A6 octave. We had a great time chatting while he worked, but obviously not during the tuning before voicing. Interestingly, I hadn’t tuned the piano for about two months, but A4 was still at 440Hz — it hadn’t drifted at all!

After he finished Walter headed off to SOTA to tune and tweak the D for Yevgeny Sudbin’s final practice session before the evening’s recital.
