Wood vs. Composites
In the 1700s, the 1800s, and the 1900s, piano actions were made from wood. There was no artistic reason to use wood, no nostalgia for a romanticized past involved, it was simply the best material available at the time.
Not true today.
WNG parts are not simple replicas of wood parts, but are geometrically designed and engineered to give the action improved performance, and the piano more power, sustain and overall volume–if and when it’s needed.
