Hi, Russell Berkley here, Registered Piano Technician in San Diego, California. Today, we're going to talk about removing rust from piano wire. And there's only one way to get light rust off. It's called polita. Polita is available at most vendors online. This is the handle that holds the polita because it's really hard to handle the little brick. And if you slip off you'll find out what I'm talking about. You can use polita right on the wire and just work it back and forth, it'll take that light corrosion off. Do not use this in the bass section. The bass strings will load up. Any time the bass strings are dead you need to replace them. but the polita is good for the hard wire throughout the whole piano except for the bass section. This is Russell Berkley, Piano Technician in San Diego. Thanks for stopping by and we'll see you real soon.
