Piano Life Saver System by Dampp Chaser
Crockett Piano recommends installing the Piano Life Saver System to extend the life of the piano and further stabilize the tuning. This works by controlling the relative humidity of the piano year-round. Pianos that have a home in the midwest are subject to extreme humidity fluctuations throughout the year and benefit tremendously from the Piano Life Saver System. Call us today to find out more and schedule your Piano Life Saver System installation!

5 Tips When Buying A Craigslist Piano
- Find out when the piano was last tuned, if it's been much more than a year, count on spending more money for additional tuning.
- Play all 88 keys, if several notes are getting stuck this usually means the piano will need more work beyond tuning.
- Open the lid of the piano and look inside for rusty or missing strings. Replacing a few strings isn't a big deal, but much more than that and you're talking several hundred dollars (or more) to replace them.
- Check for evidence that mice have lived inside the piano. Some Craigslist pianos even have dead mice still inside! You do not want this health hazard in your home.
- Have a qualified piano technician come and inspect the piano before you make your final decision. They will be able to determine how much work needs to be done to the piano. Sometimes the total cost of ownership of a Craigslist piano is greater than buying a certified used piano from a local dealer.
