Its recommend that your piano is tuned once or twice a year (depending on it's use) to keep it sounding good and working properly each time you sit down to play, This is especially important in the first year of your piano's life. Three components that need to be adjusted periodically are;

  • Tuning — brings the piano back to pitch. Piano tuning is the adjustment of the piano’s strings to the correct pitch tension so that the instrument is perfectly in tune with itself, normally (although not necessarily) at concert pitch.
  • Voicing — affects the piano's tone. Voicing is the adjustment of the piano's tone or sound and is done by softening or hardening the hammers and adjusting various parts of the piano's keyboard mechanism. Regardless of its original voicing, every piano will acquire a somewhat brighter tone with time as the hammer felts become compacted the more they are struck against the strings.
  • Regulation — the adjustment of the action mechanism which affects the touch of the piano.

Your piano can be affected by temperature and can go slightly out of tune as the seasons change. In schools, or where an instrument is frequently used, it is common to undertake more regular tuning. A piano which has gone a long time without tuning may require extra work in pitch rising. In addition to piano tuning, regular servicing will keep your piano in top condition.

Regular maintenance also can prevent expensive repair in the future and Pianohaass are happy to recommend a service plan that will take the very best care of your instrument and ensure all clients have their pianos maintained in optimum condition and provide outstanding performance year after year.

Piano Restoration

Here's what Australia's foremost piano-vocal entertainer, Scot Finnie had to say about the piano restoration we recently completed on a beautiful Vintage Steinway & Sons Model A-188 piano.

Pianohaass 5 Pianohaass Piano Restoration Ricardo kindly facilitated access to the interior of the piano so I could undertake a fulsome inspection and I must say the work is breathtaking. Every detail has been lovingly attended to, including the smallest of hinges and faceplates, some of which I suspect we're newly handcrafted. The hammers, pins and strings are of course, all brand new and my guess is that many of even these components would not have been readily available. The work on the cabinet has been done with painstaking reverence to the original finish and surveying the craftsmanship in the ornate curves of the legs and other distinctly 19th Century aesthetic touches is sublime and makes the minimalist lines of the modern piano appear positively sterile by comparison. Then, I played it! Well, actually, I caressed it. This is a piano that begs to be played with subtlety and elegance. Its tonal colors at their best when they are allowed to emote from the instrument, rather than having them harshly commanded from it. Of course, when one asks the instrument to express itself aggressively, it is more than comfortable and responds with a reassuring growl that brings an almost mischievous smile to the player. A guilty pleasure indeed! I apologies for the almost romantic tone of my description but I'm afraid I may be in love! Congratulations on a beautiful acquisition and for the work of art it has again become under the skillful hands of Walter Haass. And most of all, thank you for the great privilege of playing it. Scot Finnie The Pianoman, Sydney.
