Piano Maintenance and Repairs in Dallas & Beyond
Piano maintenance involves more than just regular tuning — though we take care that too, of course. Small things such as stuck or dead keys, squeaky foot pedals or poor action can all affect your enjoyment of your instrument. By fixing these issues early, you can reduce the risk of a more significant problem — and major repair — later on.
Bradfield Piano can provide minor repairs as well as cleaning, action regulation and more. Our technicians can also take care of more extensive repairs and complete piano restorations. We frequently work with clients around the country and can arrange transport and return delivery to our workshop. Let us help you keep your piano playing and sounding its best. Whether you have an upright or a grand piano, we can help it perform and look its best.

We can complete most minor repairs and maintenance on-site, while you wait. For more extensive repairs, every job starts with a quote.
If you are local, we can come to your location and complete an estimate. If you are from out of town, we can perform a preliminary assessment via phone or Skype. Once we bring your instrument to our shop, we’ll provide a detailed estimate for your approval.

Squeaky foot pedals, sticky keys, or dead keys that don’t play at all, are all common problems we can fix. In most cases, things like this can be fixed quickly during the first visit with a simple repair or adjustment. Parts may need to be replaced from time to time, but, in general, pianos in good condition require only normal maintenance.
Older and aging pianos may need parts replaced. The action may need new parts. The piano may need new strings or tuning pins. This is where rebuilding comes in.
Rebuilding can be done in stages, or all at once. A complete restoration would include refinishing the exterior case as well as a full rebuild. There are many things to consider when it comes to a rebuild, including how much to rebuild, or even if rebuilding is the best course of action. It’s our job to give you all the information you need to make the best decision for you.
A well-regulated piano is a joy to play. When the touch and response of your piano’s keyboard is even and ready, you know the action is optimal. It’s important to adjust and align the thousands of moving parts within your piano to compensate for normal use, wear, rising and falling humidity levels, and aging.
Action Regulation eliminates “lost motion” when a key is pressed. Over time, materials such as felt, leather, and cloth become compressed and worn down with use. Regulating a piano’s action evens out the responsiveness and “touch” of the entire keyboard. It adjusts the speed of repetition while maximizing the power and control of each note’s dynamic expression. The process can even adjust the keyboard’s overall height and depth level of each key as its depressed.
