I was hired by a london piano shop to tune and service is English grand. I was asked to do what I could in one day. After assessing the piano I started by first replacing 6 broken strings at the top.
Then I tuned the piano. It would need tuning twice as it was quite flat.
I took the action out and cleaned the soundboard and surrounding areas.
I faced the hammers and then removed the action from the keyboard.
I took all the keys out, cleaned everything and lubricated the key bushings. I also cleaned the ivories. Then I aligned all the hammers properly and carried out some regulation. I replaced the action. Finished cleaning the case of the piano. Then I carried out the final tuning.
The piano felt and sounded completely different after. I big transformation!
