Piano Tuning Lever

The Impact Piano Tuning Lever with Adjustable Sliding Weight was developed by leading piano technician Otto Keyes. This unique lever has the advantage of a adjustable sliding weight with 8 different positions, to help regulate the impact during tuning. Designed to be used primarily on vertical pianos, the Keyes Impact Lever can save excess strain on your shoulder. The lever weighs 21 ounces and is 11" overall in length. Our No. 14B #2 star tip is included, making the total head and tip length 3-3/4" for easy clearance during tuning.

Professional Tuning Lever Ideal for Upright Pianos - Sliding Weight with 8 Different Positions

There are two primary advantages to an impact piano tuning lever:

1). Impact-style tuning allows very precise, predictable movements. Precision and fine movement are important for the twin pillars of piano tuning: accuracy and stability.
2). For professional tuners, a huge advantage is the reduced fatigue and stress on the back, shoulder and arm. The constant tension and repetitive movement of an outstretched arm in a restricted range using a traditional hammer can lead to fatigue, strain, pain and even repetitive stress injury.

Impact levers are used mostly with vertical pianos. The counterweight arrangement does not work as well with grands.

This tool being made in the USA is made with high quality parts and quality craftsmanship that is hard to match. The manufacturer has been making piano tuning hammers and piano tools since 1938 and takes great pride in manufacturing only the best tools that are available.
