Upright Piano - insulation?
« on: August 07, 2015, 12:45:21 AM »
We just inherited a piano from a friend's family.  It is an upright piano and there is insulation in the back of it.  Can this be removed?  Would it need to be replaced?  What purpose does it have if it is needed?  Thank you.

It's most likely for acoustic purposes, to make the piano less loud. So yes, it can be removed.
