Tuning : A piano has more than two-hundred strings, each of which must be individually tuned to a particular pitch. Each pitch must, in turn, relate to the pitch of the other strings so that a regular series of tonal intervals is produced across the entire range of notes, from the lowest bass to the highest treble.
Cleaning : Keeping piano clean can go a long way toward reducing issues that can otherwise impact the condition of your piano. As you regularly play the piano, grime and oils will transfer onto the keys and case. Dust and debris will find a home inside the instrument, clogging moving pieces and parts creating friction thus reducing playability. Graves Piano Co. recommends cleaning your instrument every few years.
Regulation : Regulation is the adjustment of the mechanical aspects of the pianos to compensate for the effects of wear, the compacting and settling of cloth, felt, and buckskin, as well as dimensional changes in wood and wool parts due to changes in humidity.
String Replacement : Broken or worn strings negatively impact the playability and longevity of your piano. A broken string should be replaced immediately and a worn string should be assessed by one of our technicians to determine it's ability to produce tone.
Variety of Repairs : Pedal repairs, sticking keys, string rotation(for multiple strings), realign hammer(s), double striking note(s), hammer shank repair, resetting tuning pins, lubricating center pins/key pins, key easing, glueing action felts, adjusting a damper, lubricating knuckles}
