Slow Motion Piano TLC!

Ever wondered what a piano technician looks like in slow motion at 240 frames per second?  This is Ara Vartoukian reshaping some Steinway & Sons Model O Piano hammers with sand paper.  This is done to improve the tone of the instrument by reshaping the point of the nose of the hammers.  This gets a more direct sound out of the instrument.
