Piano actions are made of wood, felt, and leather. These natural materials move and change while a piano is being used. Phase I Service compensates for these changes and ensures that the piano action has a longer service life, the player has consistent control with the ability to produce power, and the tone of the piano is clear and projects into the room.
Phase I Service also includes an itemized list of the piano's parts and their expectant life. This list takes into account the piano's use and gives the institution a long-range view of service and budget requirements.
Required Service Time: Depending on Condition, 1-3 working days at the piano.
A quiet environment is required for working on the instrument.
Cost: $795 per day with additional fees for travel
