The piece is double-strung for the first 6 notes and then triple-strung. The action in this piece is considered an English grand. Also, according to this reference, the piece was restored by John Watson in 1988. Broadwood piano fortes of this time period were larger and more powerful than other similar instruments. Dr. Milburn Price once commented that the piano was of value to Furman because it would offer audiences opportunities to hear Beethoven's works produced with the same tone and quality as the great composer heard.
