Keeping your piano in tune

When was the last time your piano was warm? You might not get a true pitch if he ‘s been more than six months. Has been more than a year? You might be given an electric shock to find that what you thought was half C really isn ‘adaptation of the piano’s T. Sound is an important part of maintaining quality.

Most of the major piano manufacturers recommend adjusting the piano happens twice a year. The reason for this recommendation is that doesn ‘t take much for a piano off the line. He ‘SA member of the family chain of the instrument. Works on a similar principle. Must be tempered just like regular guitar, harp, violin or other instrument chains.

A piano consists of chains of various lengths. The sequences are stretched between the pins, like a rubber band stretched between two fingers. The tone is dependent on how long and how tense sequences.Again if you stretch a rubber band between your fingers, you can see this principle in action. It produces a sound higher if you stretch the tense venda. It produces a sound lower if you loosen the tension.

The notes are produced on a piano when you paste the various keys of the piano. Each key makes a correspondence hammer pasting the sequence or sequences within the corresponding piano.

The problem is that with time sequences of the drain position. He ‘s usually a gradual slip. The sequences used and also stretch. These two factors make a piano out of line. This may go unnoticed in everyday practice. However, you will begin to notice if the untuned piano for long periods of time. You really notice if you try to play with another instrument and piano C sounds different from another ‘s C.

This is where is the adaptation of the piano inside. The adaptation of the piano involves making tiny adjustments to several sequences in the instrument. You can do this is several ways. The old-fashioned way required a very talented ear. An adaptation was generally used to locate a frequency reference. This frequency was most often corresponded to the A440 and A on the school C.

The piano tuner, using his device, pellizcaría A sequences until it vibrates at 440 hertz. This note then became the reference or set pitch. All the other notes would be determined by the piano tuner, with his ear just to direct.

Most piano tuners today use some kind of electronic tuner. A on the school C can still be used as the fixed step and still tune to 440 Hz. However, modern electronic tuners can be used to tune more than just sequences A sequence. Some temples just some of the notes. These can then be used while the missing reference to temper all others. More sophisticated electronic tuner can tune all 12 notes on the piano.

Electronic tuners operate by comparing the sound of a note played on the piano to its frequency. The tuner looks at the note played. Then displays the difference between the frequency of the note played and the appropriate frequency. Indicates whether the pitch should be higher or lower adjusted. The technician then adjusts the strings until the sound of the piano to match the sound of the electronic tuner.

The adaptation of the regular piano instrument will maintain its highest form. The pianos that are used primarily in the country for the practice may need to temper only once a year. A piano is used for the operation must be tempered or teach twice a year. To make sure you are taking your piano tempered by someone who knows what he is doing, actually comes into contact with the guild of piano technicians for recommendations.
