  • Prevents rust on the strings and metal parts 
  • Minimizes felt deterioration, reducing the harsh tones that come from flattened hammer felt in low humidity or the muffled tones from swollen hammer felt in high humidity 
  • Minimizes glue failure throughout the piano 
  • Protects your investment year after year

How the Piano Life Saver System works

The Piano Life Saver System is made up of basic components which work together to control internal piano humidity levels, maintaining the recommended relative humidity and climate no matter what the external conditions are. 

Through a cycling action, the Humidistat is calibrated to create a separate environment within the piano, producing a narrow range of average humidity. When the Humidistat, located less than an inch from the soundboard, senses that the wood is dry, it turns the piano Humidifier on. Then, when the Humidifier has provided enough moisture to the soundboard, the Humidistat turns off the Humidifier and turns on the Dehumidifier. The piano Dehumidifier carries away moisture from the soundboard on air currents until the Humidistat senses that the soundboard is dry. The System again switches to the humidifying function. The cycle continues day after day, year after year, protecting your piano from external conditions. 

Buying a piano?

 If you are buying a new piano, keep your piano “like new” by installing the Piano Life Saver System now. Protect the piano’s investment value by preventing cracks and splits from fluctuating humidity. With the System, the piano will stay on pitch constantly. That means, the tuner will only need to do a fine tuning of the piano and will not need to do a time-consuming pitch correction before he can begin the fine tuning. Your piano can be tuned much faster and that saves you money with every tuning. In this way, the System quickly pays for itself!

If you are buying a used piano, optimize keyboard responsiveness and enhance pitch stability with the Piano Life Saver System. As mentioned above, when the pitch is stabilized, the tuner will only need to do a fine tuning of the piano and will not need to do a time-consuming pitch correction before he can begin the fine tuning. For this reason, the System saves you money with each tuning. 

Selling a piano?

 If you are selling a piano, you’ll get a much better price by advertising that there is a Piano Life Saver System already installed in the piano. Installing the System proves the piano is greatly valued and has been well-maintained during its life. It’s the same as buying a used car that has been well-maintained with frequent oil changes. When you install a System in your piano, the buyer will choose your piano instead of a similar piano advertised without a System.
