Wendl and Lung Model 178 with a 4th harmonique pedal
A Wendl and Lung Model 178 grand piano with a black case and polyester finish. Piano features a 4th harmonique pedal.
For the first time since the invention of the sostenuto pedal, there is a new pedal, the Harmonic Pedal offering an increased spectrum of expressive sound-colours to the modern acoustic piano. Pedal fully pressed: On key release, the notes are not dampened, as in the classical damper pedal. Pedal half pressed: All dampers are raised from the strings. Only dampers associated with released keys return to strings of those notes alone. When the Harmonic Pedal is half pressed - all strings associated with un-played notes remain un-dampened, allowing for the first time their 'sympathetic' harmonic relationship to played notes to be clearly heard and importantly, precisely controlled.
