Noise Nuisance by a (Grand) Piano

Many people enjoy playing the piano, but it becomes less enjoyable when your piano music causes acoustic problems, in your own home or to your neighbours. On this page we give advise on piano acoustics, how to improve the acoustics of a piano. And what you can do when neighbours complain about you playing the piano.

How to improve piano acoustics
The most common complaints arise when pianists live in a terraced house or in an apartment. Playing piano without making noise is impossible and unfortunately you cannot just turn off the piano. What you can do, is make the piano sound quieter by means of the Acoustic Piano Set with acoustic panels and piano coasters.

Airborne noise from a piano
The sounds of the instrument travel through the air and reflects against the walls. Especially in rooms with poor or bad acoustics this can cause a lot of reverberation and a sound that is too bright or too loud. This is one of the reasons why the neighbours can hear you play. When you slide the acoustic panels from this package between the wall and the piano sound gets dampened. 

Contact noise
The vibrations of the piano are transferred to the floor via the wheels and legs. These vibrations travel to other rooms where roommates or neighbours may experience noise nuisance. The vibration can also cause a little stage, elevated or hollow floor to vibrate along, which in turn causes your instrument to sound less pure. Thanks to the piano dampers in the package the vibrations are isolated and contact noise is being transmitted to a lesser extent to adjacent rooms, resulting in a lower sound level to your neighbours. Resonance will be reduced, causing the piano to sound fuller and cleaner.

Complete package to improve piano acoustics
This package include a set of 4 piano coasters (piano dampers), and 3 acoustic panels.

Experience from a customer
One of our clients is the proud owner of a piano that measures 49 inches high by 58 inches wide, and which weighs 562 pounds. His neighbour was mainly bothered by the lower tones of his piano. He bought the piano package at our shop and was happy to share the positive news that his neighbour, even when our customer played fortississimo, experienced less noise than before. Our client thinks that the coasters function well and that also the absorption panels function properly. The sound level in the room became more comfortable without the need to compromise on tone-shaping.
