- Since Theo’s restoration and regulation work on my second-hand Yamaha U3, the key action is lighter, smoother, and more even, which has resulted in a huge increase in touch control in quiet passages, and a cleaner attack in more percussive textures. Theo’s adjustments to the pedals and dampers have enabled me to experiment with a whole new palette of sonorities, and his regulation of the hammers has markedly increased the power and brightness of the instrument. My pupils and I have all noticed a significant difference since the work was carried out and I would happily recommend Theo to anyone considering restoration work on a second-hand or slightly under-performing piano.
“Theo is our go-to piano tuner for all our needs at Garsington Opera at Wormsley. He is flexible, reliable, professional and does excellent work, while being a lovely colleague. He’s also done some fortepiano work for us exceedingly well. I’d be very happy to recommend him to anyone – we consider ourselves lucky he’s so local to us!”
