Piano Life Savr System LOGOToday, Dampp-Chaser systems protect over 250,000 pianos. Since 1947, it has worked to provide the technology available to protect pianos like yours from the damaging effects of environmental changes.

You may have noticed that drawers and doors stick, when you try to open them in humid weather conditions. Or, you may have noticed that glued wooden joints often become loose and wobbly when the air in your home becomes dryer from winer heating or from dry weather that comes with extremely cold temperature. Similarly, piano keys can become tight and stick down, when struck in times of humidity. In dryness, the piano seems to rattle more heavily. With a Dampp-Chaser Climate Control System installed, your piano immediately stabilizes. That means less tuning, more aural stability, and nothing to be seen, no eye sores. The system is hidden within your piano.

Most major manufacturers, such as Steinway & Sons, Yamaha, Kawai, Schimmel, Baldwin, and Young Chang America, praise and recommend this device. And we are proud to be certified.

So, dont wait until your moisture levels, year in and year out, get to critical levels wherein your technician, tuner or colleague will find rusted strings or rusted pins. Make the investment now to protect yourself from irreparable damage or costly restoring and rebuilding.NYC sample humidity fluctuation in June 2009
