Technology[edit]

Overs Pianos have been active in innovative piano design, and their work in this field has resulted in them becoming a member of the Australian Technology Showcase.[citation needed] In 1999, Ron Overs designed a new grand piano action which has considerably less friction than other grand piano actions.[citation needed] In 2003, after ten years of work, Overs developed a structurally and tonally improved soundboard design.[citation needed]

In 2004, the New South Wales Treasurer and Minister for State Development, Michael Egan, stated that Overs' piano technology "is rapidly establishing Overs Pianos as a world leader in piano design".[1]

Recordings[edit]

Numerous recordings have been made with Overs pianos by the Australian Broadcasting Corporation,[citation needed] including recordings made on the piano owned by the Sydney Conservatorium of Music.[2]
