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.
