PIANO MOVING

Posted on January 25th, 2022

PIANO MOVING

As a piano dealer, we move pianos all the time. Piano moving is not as easy as moving a piece of furniture, a typical upright weighs around 200kgs while a grand weighs around 300kgs. Moving this amount of weight compromises safety without moving experience and tools. Worry no more because our company has invested in the proper equipment for the job to make it easy, fast and safe!

HIRE PROFESSIONALS

Pianos are heavy and fragile, piano moving by yourself may cause injury and damage to a piano. It is advisable to hire a professional in mong a piano for long-distance transport, especially if the piano location or destination is located on higher floors that use stairs. If an elevator is available you are lucky!

PROPER TOOLS

DOLLY

Given the piano weights above, it is unwise to lift a piano from point A to B. Putting the piano on top of the dolly is the most practical and safe way to do it!

CARGO BELT

Investing in a high-quality strap will have a better hold on the piano, on top of the dolly or on the truck. It will prevent unnecessary movements which can prevent damage on the piano action or bumping onto nearby objects. Straps may also be used to pull or lift a piano.

BLANKETS

The first thing to do when preparing a piano for long-distance transport is to wrap it with specialized thick blankets. These blankets will protect the piano from scratches, strap marks and paint chips.

TRUCK

For moving upright pianos and small grand pianos, our company has invested in a pick-up truck. We also invested in closed-van truck for moving bigger pianos such as our Mason and Hamlin CC concert grand.

RAMP

In able to put the piano on the truck, we use a custom ramp to make it easy and safe. Our mover would just glide and pull the dolly up! Then we secure it with a cargo belt and tighten it with the adjuster.

PIANO MOVERS

In moving upright pianos we send three(3) professionally trained piano movers to assist with the moving while four(4) to five(5) movers for grand pianos, depending on the piano’s weight and size.

TUNING

When a piano is moved, tuning will be needed. The piano might be heavy and solid but the internals of a piano are sensitive to movements. We can send our in-house technician to provide tuning service for your piano immediately after moving.

MASON & HAMLIN PIANOS – TENSION RESONATOR

Posted on January 13th, 2022

TENSION RESONATOR

Ever heard about “Tension Resonators“? It is a technology developed by Mason & Hamlin. To further understand, let us explain how the piano produces its sound. Pressing a key will make the piano action hit the strings and sound will resonate through the soundboard making the sound louder and crisper. To further maintain the quality of sound, the piano needs to maintain a slight upward arch to the soundboard also known as the “Crown”. A piano with a soundboard flat out will produce a dull sound, tones will not last. To maintain this crown, a piano must have massive rims. Mason and Hamlin took it further, they developed a device called the tension resonator and installed it under the piano to hold the rims. That is why even old Mason and Hamlin pianos have vibrant sounds due to their excellent crown. Only Mason and Hamlin pianos have it, so next time you see one, check it out under the piano.
