Mahogany piano

Carl Hardt

The percussion mechanism of the piano is a complex set of levers whose main purpose is to control the strike of the hammer on the string and to offer the possibility for the pianist to modulate the expression of the instrument’s sound as he or she pleases.

The key is the main lever of the percussion mechanism. The front arm of this lever is the visible part of the keyboard and the one on which the pianist exerts pressure. When the front part is pressed, the key pivots on the rocker arm, which triggers the mechanism to operate through the pile driver at the back of the key. In grand pianos, the rear part of the key also has the purpose of raising the damper and serves to locate the clamp or catch. This part regulates the fall of the hammer and in upright pianos this function is performed on the scale.[2].

The basic operation of the mechanism of a piano is as follows: when a key is pressed, the lever located at the opposite end is raised and the hammer associated with it is set in motion in the direction of the string which is released by the damper just before percussion. After the hammer hits the string, the sound is produced and then the sound falls until it is picked up by the damper at a distance of approximately 1.5 centimeters. By slowly lifting the key, the key releases the lever assembly from the escapement and the hammer becomes available to strike the string again. If we remove the pressure completely, the whole system returns to its initial resting state in which the damper has the primary mission of interrupting the sound.[3][4] The damper is then released and the hammer becomes available to play the string again.
