Combines two revolutionary approaches to tuning lever design.
The C-shape of the Professional locates the handle of the lever in the plane of the pin block. This enables a complete separation of turning and tilting forces and, as a result, an unprecedented degree of control over the tuning pin. Learn more
The Professional is made of stiff but lightweight steel tubes, and has no threaded joints. This allows it to transmit information with exceptional clarity from the tuning pin to the hand. Learn more
More ergonomic on both verticals and grands
The Professional allows tuners to tune both grands and verticals from a position of greater mechanical advantage. Learn more
More convenient on grands
With the Professional, a tuner can tune the treble of a grand in the same way as the rest of the piano, and can work without lifting the lid or adjusting the bench height. Learn more
Less expensive, more sustainable
Made of common and easily worked steel tubing, the Professional is less expensive and has a lower environmental impact than premium levers made with rare, difficult-to-work materials such as exotic tropical woods, carbon fiber, and titanium.
