The piano is a complex piece of artistry and engineering. The piano contains more than 200 strings that must be tuned separately. Together, these strings exert 40,000 pounds of pressure on the piano's structure. There are over 10,000 individual parts that when properly tuned, regulated and serviced combine to produce the beautiful sound of the piano.
Changes in temperature and humidity can affect the wood and felt components of the piano. In London and Southwestern Ontario, the extreme changes in climatic conditions can greatly affect the pitch, tone and playability of the piano.
Your piano is a major investment but properly maintained, it will bring a lifetime of musical enjoyment to you and your family.
