Professional Piano Moving
Pianos are a major investment, unlike normal furniture; pianos need special care during a move to protect their fragile wood frame, intricate parts and precise tuning.
Some of the delicate parts include the keyboard, pedals, hammers and strings. The 88 black and white keys make that unique piano sound. The pedals allow for a softer or longer sound and the hammers and strings attached to the keys work together to create the music. The 88 keys are connected to small, felt-covered hammers. When you press a key, its hammer strikes a string, or set of strings, tuned to the appropriate musical note. The string begins to vibrate creating music! Let’s not forget the damper. The damper sits over the strings inside the keyboard. Dampers are made of cloth or felt and mute the strings by preventing vibration from occurring, this ensures the sounds don’t crash together.
All those parts and the wood frame they sit in can be extremely heavy!
- The average spinet or console weighs three hundred to five hundred pounds.
- A full-size upright piano can weigh seven hundred to one thousand pounds.
- Grand pianos vary from about five hundred to a thousand pounds.
- A concert grand may weigh as much as thirteen hundred ponds.
In addition to the piano’s weight and delicate parts you must also consider your piano’s finish. A piano finish is extremely vulnerable to scratches, nicks and dents.
