String Massage Tool
A new addition to my line of tools. The stainless steel tip has a groove cut along the center line to lightly rub against the piano wire. Its purpose is to both equalize some of the unrelieved wire tension beyond the capo bar and to suppress false waves temporarily. A great help when preparing pianos for concerts and recordings. It’s not meant to settle strings on the bridge. Just massage the piano wire gently a few times and you’re done.
