When to Repair Your Piano

Regardless of how well you take care of your piano, there may be instances in which repairs are needed. Pianos are highly complex, with thousands of moving parts that must work in sync for your piano to function properly. You may be able to take care of a few simple fixes, but because of their elaborate inner workings, it’s best to hire an experienced professional — especially if any type of disassembly is required. Unless you know exactly what you are doing, it’s very easy to inadvertently damage your prized investment.

Piano Regulation

 Piano regulation is a common piano repair service that involves adjusting the mechanical parts in your piano to ensure they operate efficiently and your piano plays the best it possibly can. It’s necessary to compensate for normal wear and tear as the internal components naturally expand and contract over time. Piano regulation will change the touch of the piano, making it more responsive and giving you a much greater dynamic range. It’s an important step in keeping your piano playing at its greatest potential.

Common Piano Repair Problems:

  • Sticking keys. Keys that stick or are sluggish are the most common and easily identifiable problem. This might be the result of a physical blockage, excess humidity, or a broken or missing part.
    • Buzzing and rattling. If your piano sounds “off” or is emitting a buzzing or rattling sound, it’s likely the result of vibrations within the piano. These might be caused by misaligned hammers, loose bridge pins or screws, or worn strings.
    •  Dirty or damaged keys. Over time, oils from your hands can cause discoloration of the piano keys. Heavy playing or using a household cleaner or solvent may also cause them to chip or crack.
    Piano Voicing

    Piano voicing is a piano repair service that is the adjustment of the overall sound of the piano. This includes making a piano sound brighter or more mellow, along with making the tone of every note sound even. Cost will vary based on time.
    It is important that before voicing, the piano is properly regulated and tuned, as these can affect the overall sound of the piano.

    Piano Hammer Filling

    Piano hammer filing is a necessary process to combat the wear of the repeated hitting of the piano strings on the piano hammer. With time, the hammer felts develop deep grooves which cause a harsh tone. Reshaping the felt with a special file restores the original tonal beauty and evenness.

    Lucas Brookins of Dedicated Piano Service has taken care of my piano needs since 2018. My piano was shipped from California to Madison. When it arrived it was not playable. Lucas very quickly took care of the problem...tuned it beautifully, and made me a very happy customer. He has tuned for me twice a year ever since. He is a master piano tuner. You really could not do better!

    Wendy Selck

    This service was wonderful. He was actually early, tuned and did a little repair and was great. Our piano is now ready for Christmas and beyond. His prices were within line with other providers, but his service was way above what we expected. I definitely would recommend this service to anyone needing their piano tuned, or repaired.
