TPR Tools

TPR Tools - Christopher Brown
http://www.tprtools.com

For three centuries, piano technicians have worked on grand actions in the piano with issues of inaccessibility, poor light, and tough ergonomics. Or we have taken parts of this work to a bench, where the keyframe sits differently and our measuring has just enough error to send us in circles, until the best we can do is accomplished.

TPR Tools offers a suite of tools, including several from WNG, which combine with TPR's Grandwork™ protocols to solve these annoying choices.

After an introductory class first period Friday in a classroom, Chris will be teaching the principles and their application from the TPR booth during class times for the rest of Friday and Saturday. You may download the protocols and a class outline at tprtools.com. Then, pick and choose the parts that interest you the most and join the fun. Or come by in break times to see the tools and say hi to Chris. 978-505-7728 (cell).

  • Short and Long Form Keyframe Bedding – 1.5 hrs
  • Bedding and Strike Sampling in the Piano – 1.5 hrs
  • Bedding and Strike Setup on the Bench – 1.5 hrs
  • Vertical Parts Prep: Balance and Simplicity – 1.5 hrs
  • Hang Hammers Vertically at Strike – 1.5 hrs
  • Fast and Accurate Bench Regulating – 1.5 hrs
  • Action Installation and String-to-Hammer Mating – 1.5 hrs
