Every year we see thousands of dollars worth of damage done to fine pianos by untrained or poorly trained piano tuners. At Dallas Piano Restorations, we are professionally trained technicians with over thirty years experience tuning for concert halls and some of the world’s greatest pianists. Be assured, that when you entrust your piano to us, whether for tuning or restoration, your piano is in well trained, experienced hands.
Pianos go out of tune with changes in humidity and temperature, whether you play them or not. All piano manufacturers recommend tuning your piano twice a year minimum. Musicians and serious music students should tune their pianos three or four times a year to keep the pitch at A440 for proper ear training.
Mothproofing, Cleaning and Lubrication
Piano actions have hundreds of felt cushions made of wool, which inevitably attract moths. Infestations of moth larvae will destroy a piano’s parts and possibly spread to other wool fabrics in the home. Additionally, many of the piano’s moving parts need regular lubrication to keep them from wearing out prematurely. Dallas Piano Restorations recommends having your piano Cleaned, Lubed and Mothproofed every five to ten years to prevent damage.
Hammer Filing, Voicing & Regulation
Piano hammers wear and harden with use, and the tone becomes too bright and uneven. Additionally, the piano’s action falls out of adjustment and needs to be regulated for eveness of touch as well. Routine hammer filing, voicing and regulation will restore your piano’s tone, touch sensitivity and repetition.
