And Lid Props
desks are very vulnerable since the are often the most fragile part of the piano,
and, to make things worse, they get loaded down too heavy with books. Spinet
and console desks are mounted with two small hinges at the base of the desk. This
plan is followed by 90% of piano makers, and it is insane. Grand desks are
made to hang all the way across the piano on two small rails. The desk itself
often comes in three pieces which some genius thought would carry the weight.
So, here are our desk offerings in case you or the moving man busted yours.
