Replacing Hammers

Piano hammers are made out of felt and after years of use they can become very worn so worn that they can no longer be effectively reshaped. When this happens the only possible repair is replacement of the hammers.

Replacing the hammers is a labor-intensive job and so it will be relatively expensive. Besides installing the hammers, the piano will need to be voiced and fully regulated. This means that either the piano is a quality instrument or has sentimental value for you to consider this investment.
