Piano Tuning Services in Washington D.C.
50 Years of Premium Piano Tuning, Repair and Restoration.
Tuning, Servicing and Maintaining Your Piano
A certified piano tuner with the depth of experience offered by our technicians is hard to come by. To the inexperienced, piano tuning may seem like a simple and straightforward tuning process like any other instrument. It is not. With 200 strings under high tension attached to pins on a pinblock that all need to be securely anchored, there are so many things that can go wrong days, weeks or months after your tuning. To ensure the longevity of a proper piano service, choose to work with the company who has lived and breathed pianos for the last 50 years. Refining their craft every day, PianoCraft certified technicians know the inner workings of your piano from experience restoring, rebuilding, repairing, regulating and tuning the most high end and premium pianos around the world.
5-Star Piano Tuning Service
Tuning your piano is always the primary service that we offer our clients. When you choose to work with PianoCraft you are choosing to enrich your musical journey further and for longer with a tuning that will hold pitch, stability, and pitch balance.
After properly tuning the piano, our piano technicians perform a series of tests to ensure accuracy. They must listen to the faint, undulating patterns called beats which confirms a proper tuning by listening to the harmonics and intervals of each string to establish frequency patterns. Along with tuning, our technicians are also trained to address many other issues that may be the root cause of your out of tune piano.
Piano Regulation and Voicing
Piano Maintenance does not stop at regular tuning visits. Over the years, with thousands of vulnerable moving parts made from wood, leather and felt, your piano’s action will undoubtedly feel the wear from regular playing and an imperfect climate. In this case, professional piano regulation services are needed.
While piano regulation does have an impact on the voicing of your instrument, sometimes a special voicing service is needed to fix an unappealing tone and power. This is when the technician will work to reshape the hammers and fully adjust the voice of your piano to meet your needs.
Renowned Piano Restoration
The the last 50 years PianoCraft has been choses to work on many higher end pianos, rebuilding and restoring them back to life. Our restored works of art can be found in local venues such as the Smithsonian, the Phillips Collection, Strathmore, Cargenie Mellon, Lincoln Center and many other reputable concert halls, museums and institutions.
Piano Climate Control
The humidity around your piano needs to be consistent. Not only to extend the life of your instrument but also to make it sound better year round. We recommend and install the Damp Chaser Life Saver Climate control system which has the capabilities to humidify and dehumidify your pianos surroundings to account for seasonality and dramatic shifts in temperature and humidity in the Washington, DC area. If you are unsure of your piano’s current environment, a PianoCraft service technician will be happy to test the surroundings at your next piano service or piano tuning.
