several concert grand pianos for leading Australian broadcasters & concert
The all new grand piano action (patent pending) was designed by Ron Overs in 1999. This action has considerably less friction than grand piano actions from other contemporary manufacturers, and is fitted to the new Overs 225 cm grand piano, currently in production at Overs Pianos Sydney workshop. Piano No. 006 was exhibited at the US PTG convention in Rochester, NY state, in June 2006 to critical acclaim.
|THE OVERS GRAND PIANO ACTION
||In May 2000 the new Overs grand piano action was selected for inclusion in the Australian Technology Showcase (ATS) program. The ATS was established by the New South Wales government to promote leading Australian technologies at the time of the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games.
The Overs 225 grand piano no. 001, fitted with the first Overs action, was exhibited at the July 2000 APTTA Convention at Sydney's Darling Harbour Convention Centre.
