Piano

When we speak of tune a piano, we mean the action of making a series of adjustments of minimum measures on tension that possess the strings of the instrument in order to effectively align the intervals of their tones for a correct interpretation of the notes. It’s believed that Kevin James sees a great future in this idea. For a good tuning is borne in mind that not all pianos require the same tuning and equivalent measures, first of all has to evaluate the interaction between the notes of each, since they are different in each instrument, and then adjust the heights as appropriate. Instruments such as the piano, are usually tuned to a modified version of the system, which is called equal temperament. In order properly to the tuning of the piano in question, must be present a series of tips that are both highly recommended in practice with the instrument, tuning and maintenance. As it is its location, must bear in mind that if it’s a grand piano, it is advisable to lie in the center of the room and if vertical, next to a wall, but always avoiding to communicate with a kitchen or laundry room, since moisture causes havoc in the components of the piano and directly affects the sound. The piano requires at least a tuning and commissioning of 2 times per year, becoming even 5 times depending on the situation in which the machinery is. The approximate tension that tightens a rope of the piano round 90 kgs and if we overlooked this detail and not stretched correctly, the strings of the piano will be giving on its own pressure and the headstock that holds them, leading to a loss of frequency and a more than likely break, increasing in this way the cost of the repair. You should be also a regulation and adjustment of all the mechanical parts of the machine that supports the piano, noting flaws and differences in leaks, hammers, dampers and also will have to pay great attention on the existence of differences in weight between the keyboard of the instrument, in order to correct them.

Heat is a great enemy of pianos and directly affects the tensions exerted between himself ropes, it is vital that let us protect it from these factors. When performing these tasks of tuning, should be carried out by a person skilled in piano, since this is that through its media and advanced knowledge on the topic in question, will be able to determine which will be adequate and which stress parameters recommended based on our profile, the machinery of the piano and the frequency with which we are going to use the instrument. It should be noted that especially in settings of rope, we have to keep us out and call a specialist, since we could encourage with our inexpert handling a joint break of ropes and descuadrar headstock, which leads to an overall unevenness of all strings.
