Regulation

Have you noticed that your hands and fingers are a little more tired than usual after playing or practicing your piano? Maybe something is obviously wrong like a key will not repeat, or a hammer double hits the strings. These are all indicators that your piano needs to be regulated. Piano actions are made of wood, brass, felt, and leather. The wood changes as the seasons change, brass becomes tarnished, felt and leather eventually compress. All of these factors contribute to the feel of the piano changing over time, regardless of how much or how little the piano is played. If we notice that the piano isn't playing at it's best, we perform a multi-point inspection to help determine what the piano needs. Depending on the severity of the problems, the value of the piano, and your budget, we will work with you to decide what the best course of action is. We'll also discuss if it can be repaired on location or if it needs to come back to the shop. You don't have to live with a stiff action!
