Repair
Either prior to or during the tuning we will discover strings missing, broken parts, loose pins or maybe a sticky key you’d like fixed. Here are some examples of work I’ve done.

The hammer on a grand was hitting the string but not releasing (let-off). A loose wooden part was found in the action that I glued back into position and found other loose parts that were in the process of failing.

The keys on an upright had been chipped away by a child playing with his drum sticks on them and by the owners husband filing away some of them. I removed the old tops and front and replaced them with new plastic key tops.
