Reconditioning is the process of putting a piano back in good condition by cleaning, repairing and adjusting for best performance, with parts replacement only where it is necessary.
Reconditioning may include the following:
- Thorough cleaning
- Repair or replacement of damaged parts as needed, typically including such jobs as felt
replacement, hammer filing or replacement, and partial restringing
- Adjustment, regulation, tuning, and voicing to return all parts to proper function, reduce
mechanical noise, and improve tone
