Steinway Piano Technicians
David Andersen is a Steinway piano technician
“David Andersen is the only piano technician I’ve ever met with whom I truly see eye to eye. He understands the three- dimensional ‘sonic bubble’ that exists, magically suspended, above the soundboard. He knows that balanced voicing yields a piano that can whisper like muted strings, and bark like fortissimo brass a moment later. On a piano tuned, regulated, and voiced by David, timbre and dynamics move smoothly in tandem from one extreme to the other.”
-Geoff Stradling, Los Angeles-based composer and pianist, has been using David Andersen’s services for a little over 10 years, when he purchased a rebuilt vintage Steinway “B.”
“Intuitive, precise, and impeccable, David Andersen has realized my piano’s optimal potential.”
“I met David Andersen 20 years ago in Los Angeles, where I live, when I had a Steinway “B”that was badly in need of repairs. I’m a pianist and composer who didn’t know much about the instrument except for what I liked and didn’t like.
Little did I know then that David and I would become fast friends, and that he would inspire me to become passionate about pianos. I now own 6 Steinways, all of which he has worked on at one time or another.
Not only are my pianos in the best shape they’ve ever been in, but I’m a better player and musician for it. His deep knowledge, which he shares easily because pianos are his passion has been quite and eye-opener for me.
I always recommend my fellow musicians check out his work—but most of the time they already know about him.”
