Good news! We have received confirmation from the Ministère du Travail, de l’Emploi et de la Solidarité sociale du Québec that we are not affected by the new measures that were recently announced. Piano Technique Montréal has been authorized to continue operating through this period.
We will therefore continue to be able to serve you and help you enjoy playing your piano.
Of course, we are taking all the necessary precautions to ensure the safety of our customers and technicians in order to stop the spread of COVID-19. But if you have any special requests concerning your protection, please let us know in advance.
Our technician recently made an interesting discovery in a client’s piano bench. He found the maintenance manual provided by Yamaha to buyers of a new acoustic piano.
For its acoustic pianos, Yamaha recommends a minimum of one tuning per year and precise adjustments
Knowing the reputation of Yamaha pianos, we were keen to read it. The manufacturer mentions the need for at least one tuning per year (and even two) and for precise adjustments performed by an expert technician. Such work ensures that the piano continues to perform at its best.
The booklet also contains a wealth of information about the best location in a room for a piano (right acoustics, the need for ventilation, the required distance from windows and the heating system), and consistent temperature and humidity levels (avoid excessive dryness and humidity).
Would you like to know how to clean your piano’s keyboard? The manufacturer provides clear instructions. It also recommends not placing anything on the instrument (aside from music scores and a metronome, of course!). Finally, Yamaha reminds us how an accumulation of dust can be harmful to the hammers and action.
So if your piano brings joy to you and your family, and you would like to keep it in good condition for a long time, then this documentis for you!
One of our clients lives in a magnificent apartment with an outstanding view and… neighbours.
We installed Piattino Caster Cups under her piano’s wheels and since then, she plays piano with much more ease and tranquillity. Thanks to a rubber ring isolating the floor side from the piano side, these special cups block, to a certain extent, the piano’s vibrations transmitted through the floor to neighbouring apartments.
The felt stuck under the cup also protects the floor and allows you to slide the piano easily when you move it around.
Moreover, these cups barely raise the piano. Pedals remain at a comfortable height while allowing enough room for a carpet under the pedalboard for the pianist’ feet. These cups are high-quality, made in Germany and their efficient design will also add a touch of elegance to your piano.
Piattino Caster Cups fit all types of pianos
Piattino caster cups are as perfect for upright as for grand pianos. They are available in solid brass or nickel finish.
Installation included with tuning and maintenance service.
