A440 Service offers all of the piano services you need to keep your instrument in the best possible condition. If you suspect that your piano sounds a little “off,” bring it in for maintenance and we will figure out a solution. Some of the services we offer are listed below:
Piano Tuning – Pianos sound better when tuned at proper pitch. It is important for a child’s developing ear to hear individual tones at their correct pitch when learning to play piano. (This applies to late starters too!) To keep your piano stable it should receive piano tuning twice a year.
Pitch Adjustment – If your piano has not been tuned within the past two years, it may require a pitch adjustment (sort of a “pre-tuning”) in order to bring it back to it’s correct pitch and increase stability. This can be determined and discussed at the time of the appointment.
Piano Repair – Most piano repair work can be done in your home including replacing broken strings, hammer shanks, glue joints, loose centre pins, worn out action cloths and pedal repairs. Feel free to contact Norm for more information on your specific piano repair needs.
Regulation – In order to compensate for wear, use and humidity, your piano needs to be regulated periodically, which includes making adjustments to the action and keys. A piano that is properly regulated plays consistently and evenly across the keyboard which can help the music student to develop an even touch.
Piano Rebuilding – An assessment can determine if your piano is a good candidate for rebuilding. Rebuilding a piano can give a new life and much added value to your treasured instrument. “Worn out” doesn’t have to mean “thrown out”!
