Moths and Pianos

York is seen cradling a felt hammer with a perfectly drilled moth hole. (Mother Nature at work)

YORK insisted that moths could cause serious hammer felt damage, while "Terry Barrett," a Fresno Registered Piano Technician colleague, refuted this claim and argued that cyanide in the assembly would knock the pests off  before they grabbed a meal. Contrary to what most other tuners believed about moths and their threat to pianos, York had hard core photo evidence of moth invasions of  hammers, bushings, punchings, you name it.

In fact, he showed the author the back rail inside the key bed of an old Yamaha console, and pointed out that  tiny felt shavings were the "filet mignon" portion of the punchings. He was convinced that the moths were picky and choosy about their munchies and accepted only top of the line piano menus.
