SERVICE PLAN

As with a car, which must be inspected periodically at an auto shop, a piano also requires regular attention. If it is played often, the piano's natural components such as, woods, felt or leather will perform a considerable amount of work. Whether it is the piano's mechanism, keyboard or hammer felt - an expert examination by our service technicians will ensure that your instrument enjoys a uniform sound profile and a prolonged life span.

The service schedule listed below is intended to provide you with an overview of our proposed frequency of service, taking into consideration different types of use.
