Designed in-house, we are proud to announce the development of Alaska Piano Services' very own piano brand!


Why Create Our Own?

As piano technicians, we have the unique opportunity to maintain, service, and play on some of the finest pianos in the state of Alaska. The refinement in the touch and tone of a high-end piano delivers an experience that immerses a player in a way that’s difficult to put into words. Unfortunately, the price tag for most high-end pianos makes them cost prohibitive and unrealistic for most piano players. Our goal is to alleviate this barrier and provide pianos that will deliver a pleasant experience at an affordable price!

Key Features


Proprietary Pressed - Abel Naturals Hammers
 

One of the standout features of our pianos is their exceptional tone. This is achieved through our proprietary pressed Abel natural hammers. Abel hammers, manufactured in Germany, are considered some of the best in the world and are used in many high-end pianos. These hammers produce a beautiful European tone that is both rich and expressive, typically found in premium instruments.

Abel's unique manufacturing process involves cold-pressing the felt, which preserves the natural resilience and elasticity of the wool fibers. This technique allows the hammers to produce a wide range of tonal colors, from delicate pianissimos to powerful fortissimos, ensuring a dynamic and immersive playing experience. By using these high-quality hammers, we can offer pianos that deliver the nuanced, sophisticated sound of a high-end model at a more accessible price

Touch Design


 

There’s a lot that goes into designing a piano action, and even most piano technicians don’t fully understand the complexities. It involves an extensive understanding of piano action geometry and physics and requires formulas and calculations for measuring weight ratios for action leverage points and their effects on the mass and inertia on the touch weight (how the piano feels under the pianist’s fingers while playing).
 

The vast majority of pianos offer a touch weight that feels too heavy, slow, or uneven, which can be an obstacle to enjoying the experience of playing and mastering advanced player techniques. This is due to design limitations resulting from overspecialization in factory production lines, costs associated with improving aspects of design, and lack of skill set and product experience for the design process.

 

Alaska Piano Services is proud to be equipped with the knowledge, skills, and experience to design actions that deliver a highly enjoyable piano playing experience. We have designed an action that rivals some of the best pianos on the market.
