Regulation is the skill of adjusting the piano action to ensure the piano plays correctly – and that all keys operate smoothly and with uniform touch. Pianos are made up of approximately 4500 moving parts. Parts wear and change due to climatic changes or movement. Regulation sets hammers at the correct distance from the strings, sets keys to the correct depth and aligns the action to ensure the best performance from the piano. Pedals are also adjusted if needed. Correct regulation allows smooth technique, and also allows the musician to play at extreme softness yet retain maximum control.
