Modern Reblitz 04/19/2016
By Cobrun Sells
The moment I first saw this book online I thought, "It looks like a modern version of Arthur Reblitz' book, Piano Servicing, Tuning, and Rebuilding." I was correct! This book expands upon Reblitz' book and includes Moving Pianos, Grand Geometry, Voicing, and Maintenance. I believe any technician would do just fine with both Reblitz' book and Igrec's book at their side.
