Piano Action Regulating in the Twin Cities
A piano’s keys and inner mechanism assembly is called the action. It’s constructed of over 7000 parts made of a variety of woods, metals, felts, and plastics. All these intricate parts have specific measurements for size, and distance in relationship to one another, and can vary from one piano to the next. Weather changes, usage, and wear can affect these specs, and make it necessary for periodic adjustments called action regulating. Minor alterations can take less than an hour, while more complex regulating needs can take several hours and include over 2000 adjustments. Action regulating specs can also be adjusted to fit a particular artist’s playing style. Regular attention to action regulating specifications will ensure that your piano is giving you its best in terms of tone, key touch, and performance.
