Voicing & Tone Regulation

One of the most important aspects of each piano is the tone it produces when played.  This character of tone is sometimes referred to as the voice of the instrument.  Maybe your piano sounds a little dark or muffled.  Maybe it has changed to a bright, brash sound that no longer pleases you.  We can restore the voice of  your instrument bringing back the tones that made you love the sound of your piano.

So why would you want to have your instrument voiced?

The voice of a piano is much like the human voice in that each instrument will have a characteristic sound connected to the way it was designed and constructed.  Some will create bright sounds while others will have a dark, rich voice.  Some will have a bell-like tone while others a more piercing sound.  However, within each voice there should be some characteristics that are consistent.  Voicing can return your control while giving a much larger pallet of sounds for you to use when creating your most artistic interpretations.

What affects the voice of my piano and why would it change?

Made of wood and felt, hammers will change their shape and hardness, even if the piano is not played, due to the effects of humidity, age, and amount of use making the sound of your instrument more difficult to control.  If the hammer becomes too firm, the sound will lack depth of tone and sustain.  If it becomes too soft, the sound will be weak and have trouble carrying through a larger room.  Voicing counteracts these elements and returns the hammers to their optimum playing condition.
