DamppChaser Climate Control Systems
We install humidity control systems which protect your soundboard from structural breakdown, and maintain the tuning very well between regular tuning appointments. The “Smart-bar” circuit, which recognizes when the humidifier pads are dry, even permits the occasional service neglect and continues to cycle the dehumidifier. More than 30 years of piano service has proven to me that these systems dramatically increase the useful life of a piano and substantially improve tuning stability.
Vertical prices are typically $550 for complete systems, grands $595 to $950. Distance installations add for mileage cost. If customer is prepaying with Paypal, the mileage balance will be paid upon completion of installation.
Any payments for this system are non-refundable.
For the most effective humity control, we recommend a string cover for grand pianos.
Certain pianos may be candidates for a removable system. Any system may be removed, but because they are attached with fastenings, it is a time-consuming uninstall. Certain historical, stage or other pianos may require a separate, slide-away cart. A Jahn single bucket cart (black finish) adds $550, and a custom-adapted double-bucket cart adds $850. This cart holds a complete DamppChaser system which sits under the grand piano. It has an adjustable humidistat holder which can be raised and lowered for easy removal of the system from the piano.
