Richard Lowe is a professional piano tuner/technician with over 40 years experience tuning and servicing pianos. Offering all aspects of piano repairs and maintenance, including voicing, regulation, valuations, and pre-purchase inspections.
A piano that is properly in tune will sound even and clear, with a rich, resonant tone.
Your piano is an investment and requires regular tuning and servicing to maintain its value and condition.
Regulation will create an even and responsive touch, and improve the dynamic range of the instrument. There are numerous moving mechanical parts in the piano action that must be adjusted precisely for the piano to play correctly.
Voicing is done to improve the tone and clarity of your piano. Over time, the hammers can become flattened and worn. This can create a harsh or overly bright tone. The hammers can be reshaped so that they become round and smooth again. Needling can be used to mellow and even out the tone. Correct voicing can produce a profound improvement in tone. It is an inexpensive process that usually takes less than an hour.
