Piano String Covers:
Five Reasons Why
You Should Get One

Piano string covers are essential to the preservation and protection of your piano’s “vocal chords”, or metal strings, keeping them in top shape - free from corrosion and deterioration - while allowing them to release clear and resonant sound.

Strings covers are essential to protect your piano's strings against dust, moisture, and their subsequent counterpart, corrosion.

String covers are an inexpensive guarantee that your piano can be protected on the inside, while enhancing its beauty, and achieving a greater level of tuning stability, year after year.

Our string covers are made using only the highest quality materials. 100% woven wool is the perfect fit when it comes to repelling dust and moisture - it's dense enough to block it out, and yet "thin" enough to allow sound to be projected from the soundboard.

Dust = Moisture = Corrosion = Premature Wear = $3,000 String Replacement

Now, why should you buy a string cover? Here are five reasons why you should get one.

REASON #1: Protection for your piano. String covers protect your piano's delicate strings from two outside "enemies" that, when combined, conspire to threaten, or shorten, your piano strings' life span: (1) dust and (2) moisture content in the air.

A piano string cover protects against these two elements, while enabling any moisture within to evaporate and absorb into the wool. This simple solution prevents moisture from developing onto the metal parts of your piano, including the strings, tuning pins, agraffes, cast iron plate, bridge pins, hitch pins, duplex scaling or aliquots, and soundboard (wood), which ensures that rust cannot "eat" at your piano, deteriorating it over time.

REASON #2: Preserves the beauty of your piano. String covers guarantee that no dust, spills, pet hair, or any foreign object will ever accumulate in this hard-to-clean area of your piano. Thus, you can be sure that your piano’s beauty is preserved for several decades and generations. When you choose a wool string cover, you’ll also get extra benefits because it also prevents a gradual hazard from developing over time – namely, rust and corrosion on the plate and strings.

REASON #3: Additional tuning stability. String covers control the amount of moisture content in the air that could potentially harm your piano's top, metal surface components (see the list of metal parts, in bold, above the video). 100% wool is a natural insulator, so it makes sense that the piano is well protected not just from the constant rise and fall of temperature and humidity levels, but also from other harmful atmospheric particl

REASON #4: Quality. When choosing a piano string cover, we offer only the highest quality materials. Our string covers are custom made from 100% premium wool of the highest quality. It’s thick enough to eliminate dust and moisture while still allowing the sound to come through the cover’s top.

REASON #5: Lifetime Value. Our piano string covers offer the perfect satisfaction guarantee. We strive to meet your expectations, not only in terms of quality, but in giving you the satisfaction that what you are paying for is by far, worth every penny.

Don't See Your Piano in the List, Below?

You can make a paper template of your piano, by following these instructions: 

Materials needed:

1) Butcher paper to cover the entire surface area of your piano's top lid.

2) Masking Tape to tape the paper together, and to tape the template onto the piano, over the piano's sides, when tracing with chalk. 

3) Chalk to trace the template.

4) Scissors to cut out the template.

5) Black marker to write your information onto the template.


Create a

Piano String Cover

Paper Template

DIRECTIONS:

(1) Place a large sheet of butcher paper over the top lid of your piano. Tape together the paper in the middle.

2) Align the long, straight edge of the paper to the piano's left side (bass section).

3) Use masking tape to secure the template down onto all sides of the piano, so it will not move around, at Step #2 and #4. 

4) Crease the paper over all the edges of the top lid, rounded and straight, and lightly mark the creases with a piece of chalk at the edges.

5) After the creases are clearly marked, remove the paper from the piano and cut out the template with scissors.

6) CHECK YOUR PIANO'S TOP LID HINGES, FIRST, BEFORE LIFTING IT OPEN. Make sure there are no missing hinge pins (outside) or screws (inside), so that you can open the lid properly, without causing any major injuries to you, or any damages to the piano, itself. 

Get a flashlight and check the inside of the piano, to the left, if you haven't opened the top lid in awhile (or ever). Make sure the hinges' screws are there in place, and that you can open the lid safely, without causing any damage to the piano, or yourself. Be careful, it's heavy!!

7) Carefully open the piano's top lid. Place the template into the piano. Make sure it fits into the cabinet at all sides.

8) If there is excess material hanging over the piano's stretcher (long horizontal edge of the case, directly above the piano's keys), mark it with a crease, and cut the excess paper away so the template lays into the piano, flush, without any paper hanging out.

Try to make sure the template fits snugly against the stretcher, without any gaps, so the cover will not come up too short when it's made.

9) If there is <1" to 2" of excess paper near the curved edges of the piano, leave it there. Trim as needed. The string cover can be fitted into the deep plate/rim section of the piano with only 1" to 2" of excess material.

Make sure the general shape of the template matches the curved sections of the piano's cabinet.

10) Feel around the middle of the paper template. Create creases where you can feel the piano's plate structs, underneath. Mark the struts with chalk.

11) After all the struts have been marked, take the template out of the piano, and mark the creases with a black marker.

These are areas where wooden baton pockets will be sewn into the cover, to keep the cover from falling down, and touching the strings.

12) Write your full name, phone number, piano's make, model, and serial number onto the template.

Send in a big enough envelope with tracking, in case the envelope gets lost in transit.

CONTACT US if you need any assistance.


It is not necessary to send a paper template if your piano's make/model is found within the list below.
