Reveal Your Piano's Potential
Premium Piano Tuning
Pianos that are played frequently require extra attention. A premium service includes precise tuning, voicing, and seasonal regulation.
Focusing on these aspects of maintenance regularly keeps the action feeling crisp and responsive, and maintains beautiful and consistent tone throughout the year.
This service is ideal for professionals and piano students.
Routine Piano Tuning
Tuning is the most frequent and fundamental service a piano will receive. Humidity, temperature, movement, and time all effect a piano's pitch. Pianos should be tuned twice a year to keep them at pitch and sounding beautiful. Routine tuning builds stability, which reduces the amount of noticeable change between tunings.
This means your piano will sound beautiful and consistent throughout the year.
Player Piano Tuning/Service
In addition to normal acoustic piano maintenance, player pianos require additional calibrations and adjustments to keep them playing their best. Combining precise tuning and regulation with accurate calibrations, allows the piano to reproduce seamlessly and play with the widest possible range of dynamics and tonal colors.
Piano Life Saver System
*Vertical $550 | Grand $600*
Fluctuations in humidity effect a piano’s intonation year-round. Piano LifeSaver Systems moderate the humidity and moisture content of the wooden components in your piano. The system humidifies and dehumidifies for year-round protection. It will extend your piano’s life and improve tuning stability, meaning you will have a beautiful sounding instrument for years to come. Visit www.pianolifesaver.com for more information.
Piano hammers are under extreme stress as a result of repetitive impact with the strings. Each strike gradually compresses and hardens the hammers’ felt.
As the felt becomes compressed overtime, a piano’s tone will become harsh and bright.
The hammer felt needs to be reshaped and voiced throughout it’s life to maintain beautiful tone and create the widest possible range of dynamics.
*Initial Assessment Needed*
Each key of a piano is comprised of dozens of individual parts that must work in harmony. Overtime, precise action adjustments can diminish and a piano that once felt responsive and crisp, can start to feel heavy and sluggish. Regulating the action restores the touch and gives the player ultimate control of the piano. Under normal conditions a piano should be regulated every five years.
