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 existing parts.
