Piano Tuning

Piano tuning involves adjusting the tension of the more than 220+ strings inside a piano. Over time, a variety of factors including changes in temperature, humidity and hammer impact from playing change the pitch of the strings. A standard piano tuning takes between an hour and a half to two hours.

Piano Regulation

Over time, through playing, the piano's action parts compress and move out of alignment. Regulation involves returning the piano to its most playable state. It includes adjusting the height of the keys, setting the hammer-throw distance, equalising the touch and balancing the tone.

Piano Repairs

Pianos have many thousands of different parts, all working together to make music. Like any instrument that ages, parts can break or fail. Some of the most common problems can include keys sticking or not repeating, buzzes and rattles, broken strings or foreign items falling into the piano.
