The ideal companion to the Professional levers.
Fits anywhere the Professionals won’t
The Utility has been extensively field-tested to insure that it will fit on any pin, in any piano, that you are likely to run into in the field.
Same direct feel as the Professional
Because it's made in the same way as all the other Levitan levers, the Utility has the same intimate feel.
Ideal for common non-tuning tasks
The Utility outperforms most other tuning hammers in common non-tuning tasks such as string repairs, turning balance rail glides, and tapping bridge pins, jacks, and other small parts.
Easy to use in mid-20th century verticals
The Utility shines in the small confines afforded by the large overhanging lids of many American verticals from the mid-1900s.
Great for pitch adjustments
The Utility is light enough that it can be easily lifted from a tuning pin by its handle, For that reason, it practically jumps from pin to pin during pitch adjustments, especially on verticals.
Small, light, and inexpensive
The Utility takes up little space and weight in a tool kit. Because it is simple to make, it is considerably less expensive than almost any other hammer on the market.
Must-have for an emergency tool kit
The universal fit, small size, light weight, and low cost of the Utility make it the perfect choice for an auxiliary or emergency tool kit, or for a pianist who wants an inexpensive but attractive tuning hammer for touching up unisons at home and on the road.
