Meyer’s square pianos evidence English influence in their exterior and three of the four pedals: pizzicato, forte, and crescendo. The round legs and the fourth pedal – a moderator that inserts leather tabs between the hammers and the string – are typically French. The Meyer brothers flourished in Amsterdam under French rule; three Meyer pianos were acquired for the royal residences.
