String Repair

Rust, wire bends, defects, and age can all cause a piano string to break. Broken piano strings need to be replaced quickly to reduce uneven wear on the hammer. Piano strings can be replaced with a brand new string or repaired with a short piece of wire.

Restringing an Entire Set of Strings

When restringing a piano with new strings, the steel strings are removed and carefully measured to determine what size of strings should be used for replacement. Bass strings must be removed and duplicated off-site and then replaced at a later date.

Please Note: After a piano has been restrung, it should be tuned a minimum of four times the first year.
