A major portion of the tone, volume and overall sound balance is controlled by piano voicing, which is the art of adjusting the hardness and resilience of the piano hammer heads. Most voicing adjustments are made to even out the tone of the piano. Hardening the felt makes the tone brighter, and softening the hammers makes the tone softer. Changes can also be made to change the sound from robust to delicate, from bright to mellow. Voicing also includes the proper alignment of the hammers to the strings, and the reshaping of the hammer to remover string cuts caused by wear. Correct reshaping of the hammers also ensures maximum lifespan for the hammers.
