Adjustment of the pitch of all 88 notes of the piano so they are in balance with each other. I use a hybrid method of tuning, using a state of the art ETD (electronic tuning device) along with aural skills to provide the best tuning possible for your piano.
Pianos have hundreds of parts and often need repairs. Common repairs include sticky keys, broken strings, poorly functioning parts, rattling/squeaking/buzzing parts, reshaping the hammers
Regulation is the adjustment of the timing of all the mechanical parts in the piano "action", allowing for the best touch possible. As pianos age parts become worn and compressed, regulation becomes necessary to adjust the action to account for those changes.
Voicing is performed to improve and even out the tone through maintenance of the hammers. A prerequisite to voicing is that the piano is in tune and well regulated.
i maintain a full workshop to be offer reconditioning and rebuilding services. action repair or replacement, restringing, hammer repair or replacement, key servicing.
Pianos with chipped or missing keytops are unpleasant to play. I replace old keytops with high quality German acrylic material and customize to fit your keys.
Whether to look of a piano before purchasing it or to advise on a price for sale, I can help assess the condition and value of the instrument.
The Life Saver System by Dampp-Chaser will help maintain an ideal humidity level in your piano. As a Certified Installer, I can help evaluate your environment and install the system is right for you,
I use a variety of sophisticated tools and methodologies, including the Fandrich-Rhodes Weightbench and the Stanwood Touch Design Kit, to transform the touch of the piano. The result is a piano that is easier to play with consistent touch from note to note.
