Sam Powell Piano Care
Helping DC Area Pianists get more enjoyment
from their pianos for over 50 years
A properly cared for piano can be an absolute joy to the owner.
There is something almost mystical about the sound of a steel string, set in motion by a felt hammer and amplified by a wooden sounding board.
When a piano is properly cared for, with good humidity control, even in the rapidly changing Montgomery County weather, it should always sound good, even right before tuning. If a piano sounds badly out of tune before tuning, either the tuner is doing a less than excellent job, the piano is no longer structurally sound, or the humidity and temperature need to be gotten under control.
