 Thanks Ron,
 Your description of the tone is very good and describes what I have heard in
 this piano. I will pull a string under the board when I tune her pianos in
 the fall. I will also have her play the offending notes while I push up on
 the board to see if the tone changes. I have tried seating the strings on the
 worst offenders before without any noticeable improvement.
