The mechanics of action regulation

The mechanics of action regulation

There are three major aspects of action regulation. When these aspects work together, your piano can produce a perfect melody. These parts include:

  • The Keys-The keys are the gateway to producing music with your piano. Keys must be level, consistent in travel and properly lubricated to engage the action for maximum performance.
  • The Action -The action is a series of mechanical levers that transfer the energy from the keys to the hammers to produce musical sound. Many alignments and adjustments must be accurately performed to give you the most dynamic experience when playing the piano.
  • The Pedals-The pedals are used to give the pianist additional methods of expression. From sustain to soft playing the pedals must be adjusted properly and free from mechanical noises to help the pianist achieve the greatest dynamic contrasts when playing the piano.
