  • Tuning

    Hard playing and changes in humidity and temperature are the main reasons a piano will go out of tune.  It is generally recommended that regularly played home pianos be tuned at least twice a year.   Pianos in theatres, concert halls, restaurants and schools will need more frequent tuning and servicing.

  • Repairs

    Most repairs can be performed on site.  Larger repairs, restringing, restorations and refininshing will need to be performed in the workshop.  We can arrange for the moving of the piano.

  • Regulation and Voicing

    Tuning is not always the only adjustment that is required.  Regulation and voicing is sometimes required to  optimize the tone, touch and responsiveness of the instrument.   Regulation will return the mechanical elements of the piano back to factory specifications.   Voicing describes the process of softening, hardening  and reshaping of the hammer's felt.

  • Appraisal and Assessment

    We will provide verbal and written appraisals of pianos.  In addition, if an assessment of the piano's condition is required we will make recommendations of repairs manitenance etc.

  • Moving

    We can recommend a good mover for your piano move.  For older pianos, and especially those changing ownership we recommended a pre-move assessment.  Spending hundreds of dollars to move a piano to your home that is either damaged or nonfunctional may be avoided by an inspection.

  • Disposal

    If your old piano is destined for the dump you might be interested in having your piano dismantled and recycled.  It costs about the same as a regular disposal but we dismantle the piano in your home, scrap the metal parts and separate the usable wooden parts.  Call for details.

  • Sales

    While we don't focus on piano sales we often have a reconditioned or restored pianos for sale.  Contact for details.
