Piano Two

An inside view of my old Ibach piano, built in 1906. This is an older mechanic called Oberdämpfer or Overdamper because the dampeners are located above the hammers. Sometimes this kind of mechanic, which was not used anymore after ca. 1920, is said to be inferior than those in modern pianos, but the only difference for me is that my Ibach has a lot more sustain than other pianos even without using the pedal.
