Frequently Asked Questions

16) What is “voicing”?

Voicing is regulating the tone of the piano.  The primary vehicle for this is the softening or hardening of the hammers.  Softening the hammers is usually done by pricking the hammer felt with needles to reduce its density.  Hardening is usually done by chemically treating the hammers or ironing the felt.  Other more sophisticated aspects of voicing involve the leveling of the strings, aligning the hammers with the strings, adjusting the end points of the vibrating portion of the strings, and adjusting the striking point of the hammers on the strings.
