Reliable, Trustworthy, and Well-Experienced Piano Tuner Near You
Fairfax County Piano Tuners by PianoCraft delivers world-renowned piano tuning services to enthusiasts around the Northern Virginia area. No matter the make, model, or age, our certified piano tuners can restore your piano to its original tone or modify it to suit your taste. We use standard tuning equipment such as tuning pins and a tuning fork as well as an electronic tuning device. We can also tune your piano strings to a lower octave. Fine tuning is our speciality.
High-quality piano maintenance should cover three fundamental areas: piano tuning, voicing, and regulation. We offer all of the standard services—and so much more. Our highly-experienced piano technicians can repair and restore any piano make and model, regardless of the severity of its damages. Trust only our professionals for quality, good tuning.
No matter how frequently you use your piano, it needs periodic adjustments to its voice. Every piano is made up of thousands of parts such as felt, wood, and cloth, all of which change depending on usage or weather. To keep your piano functioning at its best, you need regular piano voicing. It’s a highly technical process, requiring expertise and experience.
Voicing is the process of adjusting the density of the instrument’s felt hammers to make it sound even or pleasing. We use needles of various sizes or hardeners to alter hammer hardness. Depending on the pianist, professional technicians can make the piano’s tone brighter or softer than it originally was. They can also restore its original voice. Invest in regular maintenance and additional tunings as needed for hard playing.
High-quality piano care should involve more than piano tuning and voicing. Equipped with more than 10,000 components, a piano is easily the most complex instrument to build, as well as maintain. Fluctuations in humidity levels and temperature affect all of the components of your instrument, altering the way the keys feel and how the piano sounds. Whether it’s for professional, amateur, or home use, pianos require regular professional care, ideally once every six months as the seasons change.
Our certified technicians can maximize your piano’s longevity and its musical potential through a process called piano regulation. It is especially important for piano enthusiasts in Northern Virginia, where summers are warm and humid and winters are very cold. We can make your pianos sound and feel good all year round.
If your piano needs maintenance, we can’t stress enough how important it is to seek the services of a registered piano technician. Proper regulation of your piano’s action is critical to its long-term performance. At Fairfax County Piano Tuners by PianoCraft, we make sure your piano is at its best each time you sit down to play.
All of our skilled technicians are well-versed in the art of piano repairs, restoration, maintenance, and more. We conduct comprehensive assessments of your instrument and determine what’s affecting its tonal character and feel. At Fairfax County Piano Tuners by PianoCraft, we not only address your pianos issues, we adjust the piano’s voice to suit your personal taste. Give us a call or schedule a service right online today!
Maintaining a Consistent Environment All Year Round
Every piano should stay in a controlled environment, ideally between 68 to 76 degrees Fahrenheit. Humidity levels should also be consistent, around 42%. Housing your piano in a controlled environment extends its longevity and maintains its best sound all year round. Protecting your piano from seasonal changes in weather and humidity in Northern Virginia can be challenging without expert care. From hot, humid summer months to very cold winters, these changes can be harsh on pianos.
Seasonal changes in temperature and humidity levels make your piano’s components swell and shrink. High humidity levels make the wood expand while the lack of humidity causes it to shrink. To protect your piano from the changing seasons in Northern Virginia, you can have a Damp Chaser Life Saver Climate Control system installed for equal temperament. A piano humidity control system protects your instrument from drastic seasonal changes all year round.
Julio came out and was friendly and professional, and really took his time figuring out how to bring my piano back up to snuff. He was extremely thorough and careful to make sure that everything was as good as it could be. I will definitely be calling him in the future.
Outstanding quality, selection, service; expert ownership and staff
Excellent. The technician checked the piano's workings, did minor cleaning, and tuned it (it had gone fairly far out of tune after two moves), and did an excellent job. The company also provided a written appraisal for insurance purposes. Great to work with in every respect.
