Does your piano need a "Regulation?"

Brigham Larson

Here’s a list of the many moving parts that occasionally need to be regulated.

  • Tighten screws (reduce clicking, rattling, or buzzing noises coming from your piano, makes for smoother playing)

  • Pedal Adjustment (helps make dampers more effective, makes your piano more responsive to pedal input)

  • Aftertouch (nice solid, crisp, responsive feel to the keys, can help with sticking keys)

  • Let-off (reduce mushy feel, maximize dynamic expression, eliminates double striking or hammers stifling the sound, most frequent cause of sticking keys)

  • Damper Alignment & Lube (stop pesky notes that still ring after you let up on the sustain pedal)

  • Key Dip (how far you can push the keys down, helps to smooth repeat playing)

  • Key Spacing & Leveling (does your piano need braces? significantly improves appearance, can help with sticking keys)

  • Hammer Blow Distance (distance from resting position to the strings, gives you more power)

  • Action Height (facilitate smoother, quieter soft pedal operation)

  • Key Height (how high the top of the keys are, gives you more power, quicker repeat playing)
