Barb Hall, Certified Piano Technician


Voicing is manipulation of certain parts of the piano to produce a certain sound or tone, usually set to the preference of the owner or the person playing the instrument. It ensures that the hammers are properly aligned to the strings, and that they contact the strings evenly. A tool called a "voicing needle" is pressed into specific areas of the hammer which vary according to the kind of tone desired. Some people prefer a rich mellow, or "fruity" sound while others prefer a brighter, sharper or "bell-like" sound. No one sound is better than another; the sound you choose for your piano is simply a matter of deciding which one is most pleasing to you!
