Customer Comments

hi glenn,
I am speechless that you restored my 50+ year childhood piano which took your personal care and invaluable time to repair.

I know this was not an easy task but as a result of your careful attention to detail you have restored my piano to 'like new.' You are a master craftsman and meticulous to detail and your tuning process is exceptionally thorough.

It is evident that you have a wealth of knowledge about pianos and I am grateful for your patience in sharing historical details about my piano.

 But most important you are especially rare in your excellent customer service. I sincerely appreciate your kindness in taking photos of 'before and after' piano restoration that I shall cherish.

Glenn, thank you for an outstanding experience. You are 'one of a kind" in the piano business and I completely recommend your services to other piano owners for their piano tuning needs and especially piano repairs. I would not have my childhood piano if not for your willingness to go beyond normal piano services.

ianos are built to endure an average of 50 years of service (many last twice this long). With some 5,000 + parts involved, it’s not surprising to learn that your piano may need periodic servicing such as tuning and internal adjustments (regulating).

Typically, these fine instruments require the following care:


• Tuning
- at least once a year. Even in an air-conditioned home, the varying humidity causes swelling and shrinking of the delicate wooden parts. If a piano is not tuned regularly, the pitch will vary according to the surrounding environmental conditions. With an average of 40,000 pounds of pressure being exerted from the string tension, it is understandable that this is the most frequent, and most common care a piano receives. Manufacturers recommend twice a year for owners who want their pianos to remain very close to the tuning standard. This is common for some owners especially serious students and teachers.

• Touch
- as you play a piano, detailed adjustments, a series of regulations, are required to keep the instrument responding correctly to your touch. (Much like an automobile requires periodic adjustments). The playing mechanism (and the pedals) are subject to wear and tear, and may need to be adjusted, repaired, or replaced.

• Tone
- the condition of the hammer felt greatly affects the tone of a piano, and it can be adjusted to produce brighter or darker tones. Worn hammers have harsh tones. This can often be remedied through a procedure called voicing, and it is commonly performed on high-quality pianos.
