The most beneficial service choice for most pianos in functional condition includes the following:          

  • Initial evaluation (new clients)
  • Tension adjustment as needed 
  • Fine tuning
  • Light cleaning

Advanced Maintenance & Repair Include:

  • Regulation (ease and responsiveness of play)
  • Voicing (unique sound and character)
  • Sticking keys
  • Damper adjustment

What Is Tension Adjustment?

If it has been over 12 months, or if your piano has been moved since it was last tuned, it will likely require a tension adjustment prior to a full tuning. 

A tension adjustment is a preliminary tuning  that gently encourages the instrument into the correct shape to receive the tuning. This process sets the foundation for a full tuning to remain stable longer, and with more consistency.

  • Considering purchasing a used piano
  • The piano exceeds 70 years old
  • A desire to learn the extent of anticipated maintenance and repair the piano requires
