Regulation

Piano Tuning is only part of an overall piano service.   A full piano service looks after the rigorous touch and tone of the piano.

The action is the mechanical part of the piano that transfers the motion of the fingers on the keys to the hammers that strike the strings. There are over 35 points of adjustments per note on a grand piano and 25 points on an upright piano.  Each note requires adjustments to critical tolerances to be able to respond to a pianist's every command.  Regulation attends to the touch and uniform responsiveness, all vital to making each performance pleasurable. In addition, regulation ensures that your instrument is capable of producing a wide dynamic range, a critical factor particularly in pianissimo passages.

Most manufacturers recommend Pianos be regulated at a minimum  frequency of 5 year.

Minor piano service (regulation) work is included as part of the piano tuning service.  A full piano service (regulation) is a time intensive process.  Contact Stephen Peters (ARPT) for a Quote.
