Anglia Piano Hammer Recovering Services
Established since 1982 Anglia Piano Services has specialised in tuning, repairing and reconditioning pianos throughout Norfolk and the south east. In recent years we have extended our workshop facilities to include a hammer recovering service.
We stock a variety of sizes and densities of felt to suit most upright pianos and small grands. The system we use is to cold press the felt without the use of heat or hardeners. This process produces a softer more mellow tone and reduces the need for extensive voicing.
Cold pressing is a slower process and can take up to three weeks to complete a set. We try to preserve the original underfelt, the top felt is pre-pressed to reduce the stress on the wooden cores.
There are occasions when some heads are unable to support the pressures involved in the re-covering process; in this situation we would recommend new heads, which we are often able to reproduce and bore to pattern.
The felt we use is mostly imported from Germany which has a worldwide recognition for quality.
Unfortunately, we are only able to supply to the trade, for any enquiries please contact us:
