Repairs and Restoration Services

Piano repairs fall into three broad categories:

1 - Regulating
2 - Minor Running Repairs
3 - Overhauls, Renovations and Reconditioning

Regulating

Regulating refers to the adjustment of the piano action, keys and pedals. Each note has many adjustments to make it work at its' optimum point so it will be as responsive as possible. Regulation becomes necessary because of wear in the action and the fact that cloth, felt and leather parts become compressed or stretched.
