Piano Tuning and Other Services

A wide variety of services for pianos are available in order to best restore or maintain your instrument.  A few are listed below, as well as a little information on their importance.

Piano Tuning

Because almost everything in the piano is made of wood, which changes due to humidity and temperature, the tune of the piano change over time.  Because of this, major manufacturers recommend piano tunings ideally twice a year, or once a year at the very minimum.  Tunings will allow the piano to remain at your preferred pitch.

Voicing

Every piano has a different sound.  Hard and soft hammers will impact the sound of the instrument, leading to brighter or mellow tones.  This is up to the artist’s personal taste.  As an experienced technician, I have worked with many artists, voicing their pianos to obtain their preference and make all the notes sound even.

Regulation

When does a piano likely need regulation? If the keys don’t repeat or the touch seems heavier, regulation is probably required.  It can be the result of the hammer making contact with the strings and staying against them instead of returning to its neutral position.  If the action is completely regulated, the piano keys will respond quickly while playing.  In addition, the touch required is light and the resulting sound is beautiful.
