Full service on English grand piano.

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!
