Yes, I will bring a piano technician together to inspect the piano. It's just .... waiting is not easy. So I am posting here for some early suggestions.

I could be wrong but I get the impression that you have recorded the sound with a phone or microphone placed on the piano. If that is the case it will pick up sound transmitted through the wood.


I'm all keyed up

Thanks Beemer for having a look! The seller recorded the video. And I would guess, the seller hand-hold the phone to record the sound.

We asked a technician to inspect the piano. He said:
1. The phone recording is not reliable.
2. The noise is within the normal range.
3. He can adjust some nails/nut etc to reduce the noise. but the sound is a nature thing that we cannot completely get rid of.
4. The piano in general will be in great condition, after cleaning + tuning.
5. The stings for the rightmost keys are shortest, and their sound volume is the least. So the noise is more noticeable on the rightmost keys.

Thanks all for the input!

The video has been removed so I haven't seen it. But I worked on a petite Hardman grand yesterday that had clicking noise on when some black keys would be released. I've experienced this some time with other grands and it had something to do with the sostenuto bar behind the action needing adjustment.
I was short on time yesterday and each time I thought I had it fixed it came back.
What's going on here is the wooden molding of the backcheck hits the bar upon key release. So either the backchecks need to move in a bit or the bar needs to go back a little. I tried adjusting the bar and it worked up to the point the action was replaced with cheek blocks in. If the una chorda pedal was pushed, it moved the action a little closer to the sustainuto bar and the noise came back.
The piano was moved on a bumpy road with the action in place by the movers and so it was a rough ride. Even damaged the case.
Anyone else had this problem?
