Our friendly, knowledgeable staff are well prepared to help you find the piano that is just right for you.
How Vivace prepares our new pianos
A high quality piano that is maintained properly and stored well is an excellent investment. Not only is the quality of the piano manufacturer important, so is the pre-sale care of the piano. Our highly qualified, Yamaha authorized technicians prepare each piano before and after sale to maintain the tone and touch of the instrument. These two important elements are explained below:
Tone The inside of a piano should be maintained to ensure a consistent tone quality. A piano should have clear treble tones, warm mid-register and rich bass tones. By checking and adjusting carefully the tightness of the piano strings and solidity of the hammer mechanisms our technicians maintain the high quality Yamaha tone.
Touch The keys on a piano must respond sensitively and instantly to the player's touch on the keys. By regulating the travel distance between hammer and string, our technicians ensure a consistent touch throughout the range. All piano players must have a piano with consistent touch to be successful.
After the piano has been prepared and regulated, it is then tuned. Tuning a piano is regularly is important because it maintains the condition of the tuning pins, prolonging the life of the piano and ensuring that it depreciates in value at a slower rate than an un-tuned piano.
