"The art of mastering matter"
Gary Pons chooses the very best materials from the greatest of all German piano-makers to make his own pianos. Just like certain secrets of master piano-makers, these are essential and fundamental for creating a great instrument that can provide such a powerful capacity and beauty of tone; a sound piano with unrivalled action precision. Carefully selected components: The spruce used for the sound board is selected amongst the very best species (tight-veined), enhancing the transmission of sound waves by the bridge that ensures the alliance between string vibrations and the soundboard. The laminated maple pin-block is perfect for locking the pins in place. The keys are made of basswood, most of the action parts are maple. Middle and treble strings are from Röslau. The bass strings are hand-spun, offering an extra guarantee of quality. The pins (made of nickel) are excellently manufactured and keep the piano in tune. The felts are made in France or Germany. The hammers are chosen amongst the very best according to the desired timbre or tone: Renner (German) / Abel (German), FFW (German), or Japanese. Pianos from our Platinium “R” series are systematically equipped with a Renner action mechanism.
The cast iron frame can withstand a string tension of over 20 tons, guaranteeing that bright tone and powerful capacity. Each instrument is adjusted and tested individually (regulation of action parts, balancing keys, depth of keystroke and voicing). Each piano is played, then regulated and tuned several times in order to guarantee an incomparable soundness. Gary Pons’ craftsmen all possess perfect technical and musical knowledge that they exploit to construct and complete their pianos. Each instrument receives a savoir-faire from yester year. Stainless steel and Altuglass used for the outer components do nothing to impair its sound; quite the opposite. Production is limited to a few dozen pianos per year.
