Need Help with Stringing Scale
By Andy Taylor
Boy it is a good thing that I like Baldwin scales!! I was just talking
about it the other day! Assuming that is a Baldwin built Monarch, this
should be the original scale.
According to the book "A Guide to Restringing" by John W. Travis, you
should have 60 unisons in the tenor section, and 180 [strings]. I can't
guarantee the piano was strung exactly like this but it should be correct
if the piano has not been tampered with in the past.
starting with the lowest tenor note:
19 gauge 4 unisons
18 gauge 6 unisons
17 gauge 10 unisons
16 gauge 10 unisons
15 gauge 10 unisons
14 gauge 10 unisons
13 gauge 10 unisons
Number of unisons 60 Number of strings 180
Just a little reminder......have you checked the downbearing?
Hope this helps
