All of our Schaff-Hale Tuning Hammers are made in the USA, and accurately machined from the finest alloy steels. Schaff parts and tools have been the choice of 'Professional Piano Technicians' since 1884.

** There are much less expensive 'bargain tuning hammers' on the market, however, there's an old saying, "you only get what you pay for". The horror stories we hear of ruined tuning pins or tuning levers that come apart or bend, will just end up costing you more in repairs. So why not start with "The Best".....'Schaff' - You'll be glad you did.

Helpful for my arms
I ended up buying the rosewood extension hammer as a replacement for a simple goose neck unit to go alongside an impact hammer, so I can't really speak to using it as my only hammer. That said, the metal parts of the hammer are all tight-fitting and look/feel well made. I have no concerns about wobble in the extension. The wood handle is beautiful but not an A+ finish. Happy. Great customer servic

Two thumbs up
I happened to find another tuning lever: S-18 Schaff Factory Tuning Lever - $65.25 from this site. I found this one has little longer lever (13"). I finished one round of tuning and it worked very well. The tool is solid, providing good communion with the pins. Also, the handle is big enough so that my hand had no pressure point to struggle with.

The customer service was very professional.

I recently placed an order for Balance Rail Punchings and a Schaff - Hale Piano Tuning Hammer / Tuning Lever. I received the product in a timely manner and each worked as expected. I would not only order from Piano Showcase - www.vandaking.com again, but I would also recommend them to friends and acquaintances.

Great Service
I studied piano tuning and regulation 50+ years ago at Northwestern and am finally getting back to it now that I have officially retired. They were very helpful and delivered quickly.
