PianoDisc Player Piano Systems Installed — Steinway Spirio® Player Piano Service

PianoDisc Player Piano Systems

July 2010 News Release

In a highly anticipated move from the world's number one player piano system maker, PianoDisc, they have officially introduced SilentDrive HD. SilentDrive HD takes player piano recording and performance levels to entirely new heights.

Music composer, Danny Elfman

Over the last 9 months, Franco Skilan RPT of Precision Piano Services has been involved in Beta testing the new HD components in his studio in North Hollywood, CA, as well as orchestrating the installation and calibration of the Bösendorfer grand piano that award winning music composer, Danny Elfman, has been using in his Hollywood, CA studio. “In a word, this new system's playback and recording performances are... remarkable!” says Franco. It was impressive enough for Danny to endorse the PianoDisc SilentDrive HD player piano system:

“When I purchased a wonderful Bösendorfer grand piano for my new studio, I knew that I wanted to outfit it with the best MIDI playback system I could find, so the piano could be used for both arrangements and recording. The SilentDrive HD system quickly became the top choice and I've been very pleased with its performance.”
PianoDisc SilentDrive HD

No other player piano retrofit system on the market offers this combination of recording and playback performance. With PianoDisc's streamlined architecture, installation into virtually any piano is simple and unobtrusive. With the addition of the proportional ProPedal option, every nuance of the recorded performance is captured and duplicated for the listener. With the vast new processing power, and boosted velocity and timing accuracy, playback is virtually flawless. In a giant leap forward, low volume control is also enhanced to levels unheard of before.

You can have the confidence of knowing that PianoDisc's 20+ years of experience and innovation behind the SilentDrive HD system is also backed up with a 5 year parts warranty. They have the additional advantage of compatibility with PianoDisc's vast library of musical selections to choose from.

Current PianoDisc owners even have the opportunity to upgrade their current SilentDrive system to the new SilentDrive HD!

To see and experience the newest standard in player piano technology, SilentDrive HD, or to upgrade your existing PianoDisc system, contact Franco Skilan at 818.769.5902.

Piano Vorsetzer

RUN TIME: 1 minute, 22 seconds

This video demonstrates our own one of a kind Vorsetzer Player System utilizing custom built PianoDisc solenoids and components. Just as those used by many high end piano manufacturers' factories, all of our newly assembled actions run through a minimum of 12-24 hour break-in period (20,000 to 40,000 repetitions). This procedure ensures proper regulation and tuning stability, hammer break-in and voicing stability right from day one of use in our customer's home or studio. This system is designed to work on a wide variety of piano actions, and has been in use now in our facility since January 2012.
