The ideal piano action is a mechanism that allows the energy to transfer from the key to the hammer consistently and efficiently for all 88 notes. A hundred years ago, wood was the best material for creating piano actions. Wood and felt actions though the best for the era, are not as durable. They are subject to changes in humidity and location, and are unable to produce consistent sound, feel, and responsiveness. Unlike traditional wooden piano actions, WNG actions and shanks are made of composite materials that are uniquely and intentionally designed to be smoother, more durable and responsive, and last three times as long as their wooden counterparts. Instead of felt, WNG uses an innovative composite material for their bushings that eliminates felt’s tendency to wear out jeopardizing the integrity of the instrument’s sound and feel. With dramatically reduced time spent on regulation and maintenance, WNG has created a new standard as the best-fit for the overwhelming majority of pianos.
