Voicing and Regulation

Over the past month I have struggled to explain what it is that I’m doing to a customer’s piano when I talk about voicing and regulation. I’ve worked up at least 3 different ways to explain how I’m making a piano better, more reliable, and more musical. Each description falls short of how wonderful the results will be.

Luckily for me, I’m not the only one who faces this struggle and I found other, more eloquent, articles on the topic at Piano Buyer. I use this as a resource for valuing instruments and also for their insightful articles. Here’s Larry Fine’s article on care for a piano, encompassing everything from climate control, tuning, the touch and feel of the keys, and voicing. Here’s one specifically on Voicing.
