"I figure I've tuned over 25,000 pianos in my life, and I've definitely become sensitized to the process. The stability of my tuning depends on setting the pin properly, and to do that I've spent 35 years developing pin sensitivity in my body. Finally, finally, Charles Faulk has made a tuning lever that frees me to use all of that experience. The Faulk carbon fiber/aluminum lever allows a level of pin perception and "micro" movement that is truly extraordinary, leading to more fun and less work, more "in-the-zone" moments and far less frustration. It's the best tuning lever I've ever used by two or three orders of magnitude."
I'm introducing the new line of CF-AR and CF-TR tuning hammers. These tuning levers feature and threaded head/shaft connection that will allow you to change heads easily in the field. If you are a frequent tip changer, this design will be especially helpful. All you will need to do is to keep extra head/tip assemblies in your tool kit. You'll be back to work in seconds! This design will be available in both aluminum and titanium shaft levers.
The CF-A and CF-T tuning hammers are now available with a choice of three different head angles: 5, 10, and 15 degrees. For adequate clearance over capo bars and struts, the 5 degree head is fitted with a .80" long adapter. The 10 degree head has a 5/8" adapter. And the 15 degree head has a short 1/4" adapter. Of course you can order any of the different adapters to suit your own taste.
The CF-A and CF-T lines of tuning hammers combine the beauty and strength of aluminum or titanium tubing with a core of solid carbon fiber. This pairing of materials offers high rigidity with less weight. In fact, the addition adds only .7 ounces more weight to the tuning lever over the weight of the regular CF tuning hammer.
The CF-T2 tuning hammer is an even lighter version of the CF-T. It consists of a 5/8" titanium tube with an inner core of woven carbon fiber tubing.
The metal exterior gives you the sheen and durability you expect in a lifetime investment. Whether your choice is high rigidity or lightness, the CF-A and CF-T levers are here!
