Action Regulation
Does My Piano Really Need It?

Action regulation adjusts and aligns the thousands of moving action parts within your piano, which compensates for normal use, wear, rising and falling humidity levels, and aging, and results in several benefits.

Piano action regulation (1) eliminates “lost motion” when a key is pressed, as felt, leather, and cloth become compressed and worn down with use, and over time. Regulating a piano (2) evens out the responsiveness and "touch" of every key across the keyboard, adjusting the speed of repetition (3) and maximizes the power and control of each note in its dynamic expression. (4) The keyboard's height and (5) the level of depth each key is depressed, is adjusted.

A well regulated piano plays, feels, and responds much more readily and evenly than a piano that has not been regulated in several years time, under normal use.

How Much Time Does an Action Regulation Require to Perform?

Comparable to a smooth running car, piano action regulation maintains your piano’s moving parts at their best. Most upright pianos can be regulated in as little as a few hours, whereas most grand pianos can take up to 6 to 10 hours to regulate.

Many well built Steinway & Sons pianos, concert or otherwise, can oftentimes require a couple of weeks to perfectly and finely regulate in their entirety.

Action regulation is a critical step in your piano's maintenance plan. In fact, the voice and tone of your piano cannot be successfully modified (known as "voicing" or "tone regulation") until a piano's action has been properly regulated to factory specifications.

You will find your piano much more enjoyable to play - from increased responsiveness, to evenness of touch, to the smooth acceleration of each key at your finger tips, when regulated. Greater peace of mind, clarity, and satisfaction results when you know your piano is performing at its very best.

Every piano needs to be regulated, from years and decades of use. As much as a piano requires scheduled tunings to be fully enjoyed and appreciated, contact us today for a Free Quote and to schedule your piano's action regulation appointment.
