Lester Piano Co. Upright Piano Soundboard

It was the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic in April 2020. We were living in an apartment in West Philly at the time.

Suddenly this sound board appeared by the dumpster, set out for scrap. But it was so heavy that no one took it for several weeks. So I passed the time by recording sounds and video.

I later tried to salvage this behemoth, but the house we ended up buying later in the year was not going to be big enough, even if I could manage to move the thing!
