Steinway A (c. 1930) – Installing New Anodized Aluminum Key Pins

Installing new Key Pins on a 1930 Steinway A. Manufactured by Wessell Nickel & Gross, part of the company that makes Mason & Hamlin Pianos, these key pins are anodized aluminum, which unlike nickel plated steel pins, will never tarnish or rust through the plating. Anodized aluminum is also super slick, and when polished or lubricated they will stay slick indefinitely, unlike nickel plated pins which begin to tarnish and cause friction almost immediately.
