Special Thanks to Yamaha
I would like to espcially thank Bill Brandom at Yamaha Corporation of America, who was of invaluable assistance in the development of the website. All of the pictures of the pianos on the site are used courtesy of Yamaha Corporation, and the action animation is based on a Yamaha action model lent to me by Mr. Brandom.
Special thanks to Meridian Music of Indianapolis, for allowing me to photograph some of the pianos in their store.
The content of "The Piano Deconstructed" is derived from the research of many books and articles. Two excellent resources that were used include:
- Encyclopedia of the Piano, Robert Palmieri (ed.)
- The Piano, John-Paul Williams
