|Mitchell Piano Service|
I stock a number of products that will help you maintain your
piano. These include cabinet cleaning products and caster cups (prevents damage to rugs and
hardwood floors). Also available (by order) are humidity control
systems, piano covers, benches and piano lamps (both classical and contemporary).
Many of these are also available through the retail site:
Barnes String Covers (for grand pianos only) are an excellent way to help keep the soundboard clean and the strings shiny. The wool material rides on battens that keep the string cover from touching the strings (and interfering with the sound). A variety of cloth colors and stitching are available. I'm now a distributor for Barnes and would be happy to order a string cover for your piano.
Wooden Caster Cups
Stocked in ebony, walnut or natural (unfinished). I have a set of these under our 6' grand and they do an excellent job of protecting the carpet.
Other colors and finishes are available by order, as are larger cups for dual or oversize casters. (note - I do not recommend plastic caster cups since my experience has been that they do not last.)
Fluctuations in humidity are the biggest enemy to tuning stability. To minimize these effects, thousands of people have had the Piano Life Saver system installed in their piano. I can provide further information and a quote for installation.
Sales tax will be added to prices listed.
