The edge of the pianos comprises of layers of hard rock maple and with our chime quality, full cast-iron plate, withstands the gigantic measure of strain applied by the strings. The best acoustic-quality tidy is formed into the fragile bend of the Diaphragmatic® soundboard, which tightens delicately from the middle to the edge, guaranteeing the full, rich Steinway sound.
Ultimately, the pieces — massive and delicate — come together through the interweaving of the craft and technology until the instrument is complete. However it is not a Steinway until voicing gives it the special quality that makes it unique. In Steinway, every subtle nuance is drawn out by balancing and adjusting the keys and shaping, hardening or softening each hammer.

Christian Gottlieb Kratzenstein: inventor of the organ stops with free reeds. See http://pianos.ph/digital_organs_manila.aspx
As a result of the Orgel bewegung in the early 20th century, free reeds lost their good reputation. Nowadays they are built and respected again.
Christian Gottlieb Kratzenstein (1723-1795) was the first to use the free reed. He did so in his ‘speech machine’, which was capable of imitating vowels. The machine was built as a tool for scholarly research.
It is generally believed that Kratzenstein based his free reed on the ones in the East-Asian mouth organ, the ‘Sheng’; and that his reeds had no tuning device, prohibiting their use in organs. Neither of these ideas is correct, as can be concluded from the text that Kratzenstein sent to the Academy of Sciences in St. Petersburg in 1780.
Up to now, it is uncertain whether Kratzenstein developed the new reeds alone. It is possible that the organ builder Franz Kirschnick and his pupil Georg Christoffer Rackwitz assisted him. Historical sources point out that Kirschnick was one of the first to build free reeds.
Conclusion: 1781 is the birth year of organ stops with free reeds.
