Colorado Rocky Mountain Pianos

Altitude is probably not the real cause of those squeaks and other noises you find in your piano after moving your piano from Denver to Aspen. It's mainly the change in air, but especially in the percentage of humidity in the air. But the difference in elevation between Denver and towns in the Rocky Mountains isn't necessarily all to the story either. A question piano owners in the higher elevations must ask is whether or not the piano's home is weatherproofed and ready to endure the deep winter weather of high mountain living. All too often the climate control systems of buildings are overworked and in need of servicing. Piano owners should make sure the machinery can handle the differences in temperatures and humidity with gradual increases and decreases. And further, can the piano's enclosure itself be micro regulated?

When we repair and rebuild pianos for western states, we give in depth instructions on how to attain the desired humidity level for every piano and music room. Usually, when the perfect humidity level is achieved, the piano stays in tune much longer since the soundboard expands and contracts at lower rates. The desired result is to get the piano to its correct humidity level and to keep it there even if there are great changes in the humidity levels going on in surrounding spaces.

You will notice a much better ability to hold pitch when your restored piano is introduced to a room that has a humidity controlled environment. Even in the high altitudes of Colorado, your restored piano will sound better longer with a well controlled piano space.

Repairing Piano Dampers

If the sustain pedal fails to lift all dampers evenly at the same time, the dampers need to be regulated. The wire must be carefully bent just where it meets the lever so that the dampers rest perfectly on the strings and, when in motion, they lift with uniform precision just as the hammers meet the half way point on their way to the strings.

As a part of the piano restoration process, if the springs are worn out and the levers are weak or not working smoothly, the dampers will receive special attention with the replacement of new damper springs, the cleaning of the guide rail holes and fitting with the new wires. The action will be set properly as well, to make sure the dampers work as they should when the keys are released. Old, hardened damper felt will be replaced with new, of course, and the hammers will be voiced and any squeaks will be sought out, exposed and eliminated.
