Piano Construction & Repairs

Piano repairs fall into three broad categories:
1 - Regulating
2 - Minor Running Repairs
3 - Overhauls, Renovations and Reconditioning

1 - 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.

2 - Minor Running Repairs
These repairs cover things that can be done on site. Replacement of strings, replacement or repair of action parts and sorting out very loose or very tight keys.

3 - Overhauls, Renovations and Reconditioning
These terms all refer to work that would normally be undertaken in a workshop. for example, re-stringing the piano or re-building the action renewing all worn parts.
