Hammer Reshaping / Replacement
The piano action is taken out of the piano and the hammers are filed to the proper shape. This procedure takes a few hours to do depending on how worn the hammers are. Very little hammer material is taken off the hammer top so this procedure can be done a few times in the life of the hammer. The action needs to be adjusted (regulated) somewhat after reshaping the hammers because the hammer distance from the strings changes. Usually hammer reshaping is done as part of a regulation job.
Benefits of reshaping/replacing piano hammers: 1) The piano has a clearer, sweeter tone. 2) Strings are less likely to break. 3) The proper shape of the hammers provides an optimal foundation for precise piano regulation.
