Voicing vs. Tuning
Most people assume that tuning a piano is the same as changing its tone. However, these things are not identical. When you tune your instrument, you’re simply making sure that it’s at the right pitch. Voicing a piano is when you adjust the way that the keys sound.
Voicing is a matter of personal preference. Some people like a piano with soft or booming keys, while others prefer an instrument with light or tinny melodies. If you’re not satisfied with your piano’s “voice,” I can help you figure out how to improve it. We’ll work together to ensure that you love the way your piano sounds, guaranteed.
Most quality pianos life span is about 75 years, although I’ve worked on many that are a 100 years old. If you have a quality grand piano or a family heirloom it can be restored back to its original new condition. This would mean new strings, pins, pin block, hammers, dampers, repair of soundboard cracks, and regulation and repair of worn action parts. Also case refinishing. This work although expensive will essentially add another 75 years to the pianos life for future generations to enjoy.
A quality piano restoration is often more cost effective than replacing the piano with new.
