Sometimes we find remnant of mice (and other times we find live ones…that’s when it gets really creepy.)
See that pile of debris in the top right hand corner of the picture above? If you can’t see it, then this picture should illustrate clearly what I was trying to show:
Yeah, needless to say, the piano owner was…FREAKED OUT! Wouldn’t you be?
Good news? This isn’t yearly as bad as a baby grand piano I tuned in Draper years ago that had literally 20+ live mice in it (no joke!!). I took a video…but that was in the days when I didn’t understand technology as well as I do now – and I deleted it…(frown). Hmmm, I wonder though, if the family (Perriton) that had the piano has any video footage…I’ll have to inquire.
Anyways – it’s always interesting the things we find “underneath the hood”. Pianos always feel better cleaned out. That’s part of what I do 🙂
