Installation and service is at the top of our list for these magnificent systems that save the piano structure from warping, cracking, swelling, rusting, and, as an added benefit, keeps the piano tuning more stable. The piano will still need to be tuned on a regular basis, but the tunings will be much easier and will stay better after the tuner leaves.
Another facet of this service is to help the piano owner understand how to maintain the system, and what is expected for warranty to be in effect. As part of the HCS service, the pads are changed every 6 months, as required by Dampp-Chaser for warranty, and at the same visit, the piano tuning is also completed. This makes it simple for all concerned: tune and service HCS at the same time, and you will avoid 99.9% of the problems that can cause major damage to your instrument.

PRCT is extremely helpful for pitch-raising and pitch-lowering, (when the piano is not near the standard pitch of A440. As a courtesy, the piano tuning is also scheduled to be tuned at 6 month intervals, unless otherwise requested or agreed per contract.
