ACTION REGULATION, LUBRICATION AND CLEANING
After many years of use some pianos will benefit from sprucing up, cleaning, lubricating and regulating the moving parts in the piano action. This service can range from $75-$500 depending on how much work your piano needs. If your piano feels "clunky" or floppy when being played it may be time to readjust the inner mechanism to give you more control over your instrument. Many questions can be answered by email or you can schedule an in-home consultation for $75. IN-HOME CONSULTATION
Rebuilding is normally only recommended for older American or European pianos whose name brands are sought after like Steinway, Bechstein, Bosendorfer and Mason & Hamlin. These are only a few and many quality pianos are overlooked due to not having a recognizable brand name. Because rebuilding with quality custom made parts is expensive many people will reserve this service for those high-end brands or family heirlooms.
Depending on the history of your piano a full or partial rebuild may satisfy your needs. I specialize in action rebuilding and regulation and have done many action only rebuilds for churches and studios around the Bay Area.
