Regulation refers to making adjustments to your piano's
action (moveable parts). Because most action parts are constructed
of wood, felt, cloth and buckskin, adjustments are necessary because
of wear or compaction over time.
Preserving specific measurements (known as action geometry) and
minimizing friction between moveable parts is critical in order
to provide your piano, and the pianist, with the power and control
needed for superior performance.

When your piano will need a regulation depends on your individual
piano, its age and use. As a piano player, you will probably not
notice that your piano is out of regulation since the changes are
so gradual. As a qualified RPT, Paul will assess the condition of
your piano's action, consider the options and recommend the appropriate
solution for your piano. This may include refurbishing or even replacing
