Setting the pitch of 200+ strings in your piano to where they sound their best relative to one another. Built around ‘concert pitch’ (A440hz), every note is tuned ideally for solo and ensemble playing. Since every piano has its own unique character, a well-tempered set of strings creates an unmistakably clear and full sound.
The more your piano is played, the more regularly its moving parts become slightly out of regulation. Regulation “resets” these parts just so. What you hear and feel can seem like a brand new action. Because use, age, and climatic conditions do vary, so too does the type and degree of regulation each piano periodically requires.
Hammer felt composition is adjusted to be tighter or looser as per the pianist’s desire to strike a rich and colourful sound. Thus, the pianist’s input is important to express the tone colour, feel, and dynamic range. Well-voiced hammers reflect your playing style and ensure the sound you want.
All pianos are vulnerable to damage and degradation in many ways. As you can imagine, your piano has numerous functioning mechanisms that make it play and sound its absolute best. Much like the family vehicle, components degrade and may occasionally break, so small and large repairs become vital to continue making music.
