I am interested in getting the Forte III's but like the white lambswool covers best, however I don't want to get the distressed oak or pay extra for the 70th anniversary edition. Does anyone know if you can request a white grill cover on a standard model? If not, why not!
I've got recently acquired 1983 Cornwalls with their original cane grills... But they need help. The cane seems intact--no breaks--but is pulled/shrunk so tightly on one of the grills that its curled beyond useable. I'm considering making a press that will gradually flatten them over several weeks; with the grills sandwiched between damp towels (not wet) or maybe occasional misting with a water spray bottle. Once the press is completely flat, I would remove the towels (or stop misting them) and let them stay pressed until they dry out. I'm guessing they won't be perfect, but might flatten enough that the velcro will once again hold them on. The grill frame (is it plywood?) might be the most difficult part. I'm concerned the moisture, over time, may cause the cane to release from the edges of the frame--does anyone know what kind of adhesive was used? Or maybe I'm wrong about the cane slowly stretching under the right conditions? • Anyone know why this might be a bad idea? • Is there a better solution to this problem? • !! Also, does anybody know if the Cornwall III Special Edition uses linen for the grill fabric? The photos on the corporate site sure look like the unprimed, Belgian linen I'm used to seeing used for stretched canvas used by fine-art painters. Curious. That would be an easy fix. Just order the linen from Utrecht. What is it that makes some fabrics sound-transparent and others not? Or are most fabrics a safe bet for sound transparency?
