Jenkin Piano Service offers a variety of services for your instrument. We pride ourselves on our satisfied customers.
We recommend pianos be tuned twice a year, although some of our customers find once a year sufficient. If a piano is being used frequently, more regular tunings will allow us to refine the tuning. Pianos should always be tuned prior to concerts and important performances.
From time to time tuning, regulation and voicing will not be sufficient to keep your piano in excellent condition. We have the most comprehensively equipped workshop in Australasia, capable of carrying out every possible type of piano repair, from complete rebuilding to minor upright repairs.
We pride ourselves on transforming sun-bleached pianos or ageing finishes to near showroom condition with gleaming brasswork.
Our wide experience and knowledge of the piano market can be helpful if you need to sell your piano or require a valuation for insurance.
We are New Zealand agents for Dampp-Chaser®. We have found these systems to be excellent in creating the correct stable climate for your piano, especially for preventing the problems associated with high humidity, sluggish keys, mechanisms, and rusty strings.
David Jenkin and David Salmon are experienced installers of these electronic reproducing systems for pianos.
All too often we see damage from poor or humid piano storage.
We supply bona fide technicians with piano parts and bass strings. We do not supply the general public.
