WE SERVICE ALL MAKES AND MODELS OF PIANOS

Like all things we care about, a piano needs regular maintenance to be at its best.

   The three components of musical performance that need to be adjusted periodically are pitch (by tuning and pitch raising), touch (by regulating) and tone (by voicing).


Tuning Services

  • To adjust the tension of more than 200 strings, so they are in harmony with each other.

Most piano manufacturers recommend two tunings per year to optimize your instrument's performance.

We provide scheduled reminders to you don't have to call, as a courtesy to our clients.

Our Passion is in making your Piano Sound Amazing!

Regulating

Due to wear and tear as well as climate changes, the wood and cloth parts need to be restored as close as possible to the original factory specifications.

Pianos should be regulated on an ongoing basis.

Some indicating symptoms are:


This is an upright piano action.

  • Keys rattle, action is excessively noisy
  • Strings sustaining too long
  • Keys seem to go down too far or seem too shallow
  • Pedal problems (Squeaking, or Grinding sounds)
  • Notes do not repeat quickly
  • Notes continue to ring after the key returns
  • Piano has developed a harsh metallic sound
  • The keys do not feel the same as when purchased

Voicing

   Voicing is one of the most neglected areas in piano servicing. Properly voiced, your piano can produce a rich contrast in tonal colors. We have both studied voicing at Steinway and Sons as well as with Marc Weinert (NYC) and World Expert Andre Oorebeek (Netherlands).

Symptoms

  • The piano has a harsh or extremely bright sound (tinny)
  • You are not happy with the sound after the piano has been tuned
  • The tone varies between notes
  • The volume varies between notes
  • The piano sounds different than when purchased
  • The piano has lost its ability to play softly
  • The piano is too mellow sounding.
