The working mechanism of a piano is likely to be affected not only by the mechanical wear and tear but also by the changes in humidity levels and temperature.
To prolong your instrument’s life, below mentioned are the repairs that can’t be ignored.
Rusty strings are more susceptible to breakage even if there’s a slight change in tension. If the string in the treble section or middle is broken, we initiate the string replacement procedure.
The pedal of your piano may start making strange sounds or stop working completely. Many times, it just needs a little adjustment and rarely needs a complete restoration (required only when it is poorly engineered or worn out). No matter what you need, we are here to serve you.
With time, the hammer go from round to flat causing the strike point with the string getting bigger. This leads to a decreased quality of tone. When this happens, hammer reshaping is required. We touch up the hammers for new pianos, so they strike evenly. This involves carefully taking off the layers of felt to restore the shape of the hammer. Hammer voicing follows hammer reshaping to ensure the tone stays intact.
Eventually, when the hammers become too light to render a good sound, we replace them.
