Frequently Asked Questions

11) How can I “lower the volume” of my piano?

You can have the piano “voiced”, which mostly involves softening the hammers to produce a more mellow sound.  You can also change the room acoustics by adding rugs, upholstered furniture, draperies, wall hangings, and other sound-absorbent objects.  Storing some cardboard boxes under your grand piano, while not very attractive, can do wonders for softening the sound.  Finally, there are some accessories on the market in the form of Styrofoam products, blankets, and so forth that, when applied to the back or underside of the piano, can reduce the volume by many decibels.  Contact a piano technician for details.
