Moving a Wide Piano Through a Narrow Door
By John A. Tuttle

Hi All,  Of all the advice given, I found the best to be putting the
piano on its side to go through the doorway.  It's always worth a try
_before_ resorting to removing the keybed.

The inherent problem with removing the keybed is the necessity for
regulating virtually every adjustment in the piano and the player
action after re-assembly.

My advice: think clever.  If you're really unsure about whether or not
the piano will fit through the door on its side, make a template out of
cardboard.  It's well worth the few minutes it takes versus the hours
of putting a house back together or making hundreds of adjustments.

late 1800's and early 1900's when people and doorways were smaller.)
