    Good Evening,

    Does anyone know where I can get these pedal rod bushings for a Chinese made piano.  I ordered part # 359-K and 359-Y from Schaff, but they appear to be too small.

    Thanks for any assistance!

    Probably impossible to find here. One thing you can do is take some buckskin strips lay them in the pedal cups and trim them off after pushing the pedal rods down. A strip about 3 inches long goes over the cup horizontally and another one goes vertically.

    Hi Patrick     I was taught to cut out a piece of leather into the shape of an iron cross (look it up).  That way there is just one thickness.  I imagine eskaine, available from  supply house, would suffice also.

    Rubber tubing from an auto parts store comes in numerous inner and outer diameters. A leather disk in the bottom of the pedal cup and a short piece of automotive tubing usually works for a long time for me.

    I had thought about this... because basically it is just about keeping the rod inserted firmly into the pedal cup.  Sometimes I tend to "overthink".  thanks!

    Patrick,
    Although not a direct replacement, the Yamaha bushing #T5901116 works well.​
