CUSTOM BASS STRINGS
All copper windings on FINEST GRADE PIANO CORE WIRE
METHOD NO. 1 RETURNING OLD STRINGS
Remove old strings from the piano, stringing them on a wire in numerical order
as they are removed from the piano. Where a string is missing, place a
punching on the wire to represent the missing string.
BE SURE TO KEEP THE STRINGS IN NUMERICAL ORDER
Send the old strings to SCHAFF with your name, address and customer number
on a slip of paper along with the following information:
1. Name of Piano
2. Number of strings one (1) to a note
3. Number of strings two (2) to a note
4. Number of strings three (3) to a note
5. Number of wound strings on separate or treble bridge
Satisfactory results can be obtained with a paper pattern
A.
Take a piece of paper long enough and wide enough to cover the complete bass string section.
B.
With the Pattern on top of the Hitch-Pins, sandpaper across the Pattern until the Hitch-Pins clearly show
through the paper. Press the Pattern down around the Hitch-Pins until the paper rests on the plate.
C.
With the Pattern now firmly held by the Hitch-Pins, stretch it tightly across the Bridge-Pins and sandpaper the
Pattern until all Bridge-Pins clearly show through the paper. Press the Pattern all the way down on the
Bridge-Pins until the paper rests on the bridge with the Bridge-Pins clearly showing through the Pattern.
D.
Now stretch the Pattern over the Agraffes or the Upper Plate bearing points and sandpaper on the Pattern
until their position is clearly indicated.
This gives us an accurate pattern (see illustration) and assures you a set of strings that will properly fit your piano.
Send the Pattern with the First and Last strings to SCHAFF with the following information written on the pattern:
1. State if pattern was taken over the dampers.
4. Number of strings two (2) to a note.
2. Name of piano.
5. Number of strings three (3) to a note.
3. Number of strings one (1) to a note.

INDIVIDUAL STRINGS
Whenever possible return the old string
for duplication. If the old string is not
available, we can make one for you with
the following information:
1. Length from Hitch-Pin to start of winding.
2. Length of winding.
3. String number.
4. Core diameter (steel).
5. Overall diameter with wrap (copper).
String number as it lies in the scale can be determined by counting from the lowest bass note in the Piano (No. 1) on up the scale toward the Treble
Section, counting each string individually.
