Types of Service by PianoCraft
Tuning is the number one reason people call us. Getting your piano tuned will make the most obvious sound improvement on your piano. If your piano hasn’t been tuned in the last 6 months it likely needs a tuning to sound its best, even if it doesn’t get played that much. Contact PianoCraft Service to schedule a time for one of our highly trained piano technicians to tune your piano. You will love it!
Is something on your piano broken? Whether a mechanical or case problem, our expert craftsmen can fix it. Many repairs can be done in your home, but if it requires more, we have a state of the art full service shop that can repair pretty much any problem no matter how extensive.
Does your piano feel sluggish? Does it not feel and play as precisely and evenly as it used to, or as you would like? Chances are it needs some adjustments to the moving parts of the piano called the action. This is known as regulation and is part of the regular maintenance every piano needs, but most piano owners aren’t even aware of its importance. PianoCraft Service’s expert technicians can regulate your piano to feel and respond better than ever! If your piano hasn’t had any regulation done recently (or ever!) or if it doesn't seem to respond as well as you would like, contact us to make an appointment or with any questions regarding this critical part of maintaining your piano’s health and performance.
If your piano doesn’t have an even sound note to note, if it sounds overly bright and tinny, or if it sounds weak and dull, chances are having PianoCraft voice your piano will improve it immensely. As your piano gets played, the felt of the hammers are constantly hitting the steel of the strings. The felt gets compacted and harder in a manner that makes your piano sound uneven and unpleasant. PianoCraft Service’s expert technicians can “voice” your piano to sound beautifully warm and rich, and even from note to note. This is a very important part of normal maintenance for your piano that often gets neglected. People are often amazed at how much better their piano sounds after it is properly voiced. If your piano hasn’t been voiced recently (or ever!), or it just doesn't sound the way you would like, contact us to make an appointment or with any questions regarding this critical part of maintaining your piano’s health and performance.
The Washington DC climate is hot and humid in the summer and cold and dry in the winter. These climate extremes play havoc on the wood of your piano, causing it to go out of tune and out of regulation and the swings in humidity may even cause cracks in the soundboard! PianoCraft Service can install systems that will protect your piano from the harsh Washington DC climate and keep it sounding and playing better and lasting longer! Protect your investment and contact PianoCraft Service with any question regarding climate control for your piano.
