Mozart Rail®

The key-dip became deeper and deeper through three hundred years of piano history; starting under 5 mm it went down to more than 10 mm today – a real challenge for pianists! Steingraeber’s Mozart Rail® reduces key-depth in grand pianos down to 8 mm, and hammer distance to the strings is reduced down to 36 mm. This makes softer pppp playing and faster repetition possible. It is available in two different versions: a knee lever to use it while playing or a hand rail to adjust it between 8 and 10 mm before starting to play. George Steingraeber developed this pianissimo pedal in 1894 and it was also used by Engelbert Humperdinck.
