Had a visit by an accomplished amateur pianist who is on the science faculty at a very prominent area college. He remarked on the responsiveness of the action before knowing it had WNG action components. At about 5’7″ this Feurich 172 is a really great piano for someone with limited space.
I took a slightly different path with the 218 and got help. I asked Boaz Kirschenbaum of Cherry Tree Pianos to recommend a configuration and perform the necessary surgery.
