What Does Your Piano Need?
You might not have realized that there are so many different kinds of maintenance and repairs that go into keeping a piano functioning at its optimal level. If you’re a piano owner, we encourage you to read below to discover what services you might require from Bill’s Piano Service.
Piano’s average maintenance interval for tuning is every 6 months to stay at perfect A440 pitch.
We always strive for A440 pitch on all pianos with the temperament to make them sound their best, however due to age and condition this might not be achievable. We promise to tune your piano to make the music sound as beautiful as intended.
This is the adjustment of the mechanical parts of the pianos to make up for the effects of wear, the compacting and settling of cloth, felt, and dimensional changes in wood and wool parts, due to changes in humidity.
Key Top Replacement
We will make sure that you get the right keys for your piano. Eventually, all pianos need key top replacements, so we are prepared to do the work and to make sure that your piano both functions and looks attractive by the end.
Functioning hammers are debatably the most important part of a piano. These are what give the keyboard the feel that it has, and they are also subject to the most wear. This can cause the tone of your piano to be off, so make sure you stay up-to-date with hammer replacement.
The damper is what puts a stop on the strings’ vibrations, which is influenced by the force of the pushing down on the keys and the pedal. In order to maintain the highest-quality performance, you need to be sure this is working, and we can help with that.
Sometimes piano strings can break. Don’t panic! These strings are easily replaceable, and we can stop by and do this swiftly and efficiently.
Bass strings lose their depth in sound or can sound “tubby.” It’s OK, take a breath, it’s just the corrosion on the strings that develop over time and can be easily replaced, too.
