Piano builder Adrian Mann has created a piano with 20-foot strings. It's been installed in southern New Zealand where the creator hopes keyboardists will test its possibilities.
“You’ve got a huge soundboard, it moves a massive amount of air, and you’ve got that extra bit of grunt behind it. The keys are almost a metre long. There were huge engineering challenges to overcome. When it was first built the sound was quite raw, but it’s now much more refined and tuned and well-regulated.”
