About us - piano tuner
"Din pianostämmare i Siljansbygden" (Piano tuning company)
Our piano tuning company was set up in Leksand in 1996 by Michael Thomasson.
Our business concept is based on selling new and maintaining old upright and grand pianos. Maintenance normally involves tuning instruments once or twice a year and repairs and restoration. Another service provided by the company is the manufacture and sale of strings for upright and grand pianos. We are alone when it comes to manufacturing strings, selling them all over Sweden. The strings are custom-made according to customer wishes for all conceivable brands. The bass strings are hand-made using pure steel and solid copper. The materials used are the best of German quality. We strive to deliver strings within a week. Do pay us a visit or phone us to order our products and for help with your piano tuning or strings. Keep in mind that it takes a lot of knowledge and experience to properly tune a piano or grand piano, given the tensile stress of the strings amounts to 10-15 tons.
When it comes to making a piano sound great, it’s not just tuning that has to be considered. There are many other factors that also come into play, such as depth adjustment, grading, hammer rebound, and note-to-note intonation. At “Din Pianostämmare in Siljansbygden”, we have extensive experience in adjusting all these parameters to ensure that your instrument responds precisely to key touches and sounds excellent. Trust us to get the most out of your upright piano or grand piano! To make a piano sound as good as possible and respond to key touches precisely, it’s not just tuning that’s important. There are many other parameters that affect how well the instrument plays, and which require precision and experience to adjust properly. One of these parameters is the depth adjustment, which means adjusting how much the keys will dip when you play them. This affects how the piano feels to play and how easy or difficult it is to control key touch.
Another important parameter is grading, which involves adjusting the angle of the keys. This affects how quickly the keys return to their original position after they have been played, which in turn affects how quickly the instrument can be played and how easily various sound nuances can be created.
When the hammer rebounds is also an important factor that affects how well the piano responds to key touches. This is about where the hammer strikes the string, and it can be adjusted to vary key force and to improve tone precision.
Finally, note-to-note intonation is also important. This involves adjusting the pitch of each note on the piano so that they sound good both individually and together with other notes. It requires precision and experience to get the right balance between notes and to optimise the instrument’s sound quality.
We have the experience and knowledge required to adjust all these parameters correctly, and to get the most out of your upright piano or grand piano. Trust us to give your instrument the love and attention it deserves!
