About this object

[en] This is the later of a group of three upright pianos of essentially identical action and design, differing mostly in the style of the case. Contrary to CIM-002 and CIM-003, it has straight legs and rectangular panels with sharp corners, more in line with the forthcomming art deco. The dampers are located over the hammers, very close to the upper end of the vibrating section of the string.
[pt] Este é o mais recente de um grupo de três pianos verticais com mecânicas e estruturas virtualmente idênticas, diferindo essencialmente no estilo do móvel. Ao contrário dos instrumentos CIM-002 e CIM-003, as pernas são rectas e os paineis rectangulares, sem arredondamento dos cantos, mais próximo das linhas características da Art Deco. Os amortecedores estão colocados acima dos martelos, muito próximos do limite superior da parte vibrante das cordas.
