Voicing is the process of tone adjustment for the piano. Every piano has its own unique voice, as well as its own potentials and limitations for the range and beauty of that voice.
Tuning is the most obvious way a piano can “lose its voice”, since any out-of-tuneness can obscure the clarity of the tone. A pianos tone will change as well with use, since the piano’s hammers are made of felt and they will, over time, become worn and compressed. The “voice” of the piano can also be affected if the action is out of adjustment and needs regulation, since it may not be able to deliver the power or control you need to get the tone you want.
If you feel your piano has “lost its voice”, Jeff Stickney can help you determine what factors are contributing to these changes, and find a solution to restore the tone of your piano to its full potential.
