“The most ambitious book on piano technology ever written, and very likely the most complete and successful. . . . It covers a very broad spectrum of piano technology topics in much greater depth than one would expect for a book covering such a wide range of topics.
“[The] chapter on touch, geometry, and playability is about as detailed and thorough as anything I've seen short of Walter Pfeiffer's two books on action design.
“Igrec's 164-page chapter on rebuilding could quality as a book all by itself. I believe this is the most comprehensive exposition on piano rebuilding I've ever seen anywhere.
“Buy this book. Read this book. You will be glad you did.”
-- Piano Technicians Journal
“The most comprehensive book on piano technology that has been written in recent times. . . . It is a monumental work and if one wants to have the latest information on the subject of piano tuning and technology this is the book to own and use as a reference.
“The tuning chapter is to be commended for including a good description of inharmonicity. Chapter 9 titled Touch, Geometry, Playability, is a very advanced and detailed trip through hammer weight, friction, action geometry and how this all affects the way the piano feels to the pianist.
“Pianos Inside Out is an excellent book; highly readable and recommended for piano owners, piano technicians and those learning about piano technology.”
-- Europiano Magazine
“Well thought out and wonderfully detailed . . . I recommend it highly to anyone who wants to further their knowledge and expertise in the piano tuning, repair, and restoration field. It should be required reading for anyone aspiring to become an RPT member of the Piano Technicians Guild.”
-- Arthur Reblitz, author of Piano Servicing, Tuning, and Rebuilding: For the Professional, the Student, and the Hobbyist
