Are you stringing the whole thing? I strung the capo section many years ago, but needed to take off the capo bar and reshape it with Steve Brady as it had regular string breakage. I just used Roslau wire and nothing ever broke again.
Wow wonderful and substantive post reply from Priscilla , the only time I ever agreed to do a full restring in home was in the 80's on Nantucket Island over the winter months when the customer was not in residence and the house key was in a hideaway or I would coordinate with the winter caretaker . For all the reasons stated creating an efficient and tech friendly workspace in their home for me is a non starter, but I understand the cost saving of a round trip move , and if the work is scheduled for the winter months I'd be cautious about moving it to your workshop trying to maintain constant humidity levels in a New England winter ...and god forbid .."yes it's all restrung but a couple of soundboard cracks appeared..!"www.snowpianos.com
