There are some 9000 working parts in a piano that need to be in the proper position and alignment for a piano to play well. Keeping these parts adjusted and in good working order is essential to giving you control over the sound that is produced.
As time passes the felts, cloth, and leathers will settle, wear, and deteriorate. Wood and wool parts will change in size and shape. Metal parts will wear, become misaligned, or break. These and other forces will conspire to not only degrade the performance of the instrument but can, if left unattended, cause more serious problems. For some, even a new piano will need to have the regulation refined for a higher level of performance. A good maintenance plan will include the regulation of the parts to keep your piano playing its best. Schedule your regulation and begin to love the way your piano plays again.
