Caring for your new Piano
Friday, 09 Oct 2020
For polished ebony and white pianos it is recommended that dust and fingerprints are wiped off with a clean microfiber cloth with Yamaha Unicon Piano Polish. For satin finished pianos, wiping down with a microfiber cloth is all that’s needed. For information about cleaning piano keytops, please visit our piano cleaning blog post.
Tuning and Servicing
Regular tuning and servicing will ensure your new piano’s quality of touch and sound will be maintained for many years to come. In addition to regular tuning, pianos require maintenance of the mechanism (regulation) and maintenance of their tone (voicing) to keep them working smoothly and sounding their best. The frequency of this work depends on how often the piano is used.
It is recommended that pianos are tuned at minimum once per year and serviced once every three years by a qualified technician. For pianos used on a regular basis, these needs may be more frequent and it is recommended that you discuss your usage with your piano technician to organise a customised service schedule.
