Piano Tuning
The Piano Gallery tunes, preps and details every piano we sell prior to delivery. Furthermore, as a gift from us, along with your piano purchase, you’ll receive two gift certificates, good for 50% off on piano tuning when you use a recommended tuner in our service network.

Piano tuning is the process of adjusting the strings to the precise point at which they will vibrate at the proper pitch. In general, no matter how good the piano and how expertly it is the tuned, atmospheric variations, particularly humidity, and the nature of the pianos construction, will conspire to bring it off pitch.

Voicing And Tone Regulation
voicing-hammersEvery piano has its own unique sound. One might be described as ‘glassy,’ another as ‘warm’. One might have a ‘full singing’ tone, and yet another sounds ‘thin’. Although the original design establishes the basic character of your piano’s tone, your technician can modify it to better suit your taste or restore its original tone.

Piano Voicing is somewhat a matter of preference. Some pianists prefer “bright” voicing while others prefer a mellower sound. Regardless of its original voicing, every piano will aquire a somewhat brighter tone with time because the hammer felts will be compacted as they are thrown repeatedly against the strings.

THEREFORE, DEPENDING ON YOUR TASTE AND THE AMOUNT YOU USE YOUR PIANO, YOU MAY WANT TO PERIODICALLY GET YOUR PIANO VOICED.
