Roanoke PTG March meeting

Virtual via Zoom

We will have a short business meeting followed by a class by Dan Levitan entitled: The Tuner’s Hand.

This is a live, hands-on exploration of the dynamics of stable pin setting with both L-shaped and C-shaped tuning hammers. All class participants should have on hand a paper clip—preferably, a jumbo (50mm) rather than the standard #1 (30mm) size—and a pair of vise grips pliers—preferably, the standard size (5 1/2"), but the junior size (4 1/2") will also work.
