Our "Red October"
« on: January 09, 2021, 12:54:42 PM »

With grand piano Max has begin serving work since 1999. He has not anything knew how it's work.The hall where grand was installed before 1991 was the main conference hall of the district committee of the Communist Party Ozinky region, Saratov. After the abolition of the Communist Party of the USSR, it's stone house was granted to the Children's Art School.
In the midst of severe frosts, in 2003 the central heating system collapsed here. Max was forced to pick out peises ice from this piano. Max decided to loosen all the strings because it's would be loosed and broken.
For about 18 years, Max has been trying to improve sound (purity of unison), regulate mechanics, etc.
In 2015 Max had his anytings conflict with the school administration and he get away. A certified tuner who was called from Saratov did bad things here. He completely broke a pitch (all octaves were heavily overstated and were not clean and he disintegrated the work of anything hammers (an action). He was twice here. And result his works was sadanly.
The teachers of the school asked the administration to return Max and the administration was must invited his again. Therefore until February 2018 did not work as a tuner here. Now he regulates the grand piano and piano again (they are both here). This is necessary for ensemble piano performance.





Today I was informed that no one has tuned that grand for 1.5 years. I previously wrote to the school administration that I would not be able to come from Kazakhstan, since the border is closed.
But I was very happy that the sound is very acceptable yet to my ears there.
Glory, "RED OCTOBER"
