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.

The Schaff #7 Student & #S-8 Craftsman Levers are ideal for the Apprentice Tuner. 6" Long with a lacquered wood handle, it has a smooth tapered feel.

7 Student Comes with a stationary stainless steel rod and a one-piece No17 Head & a #2 Star Tip - 5º Pitch angle, and measures 2-1/2" long. Overall length is 11" - $70.80

8 Craftsman - Has 13G 5º pitch angle head, and a 14B #2 Star Tip. It's equipped with a 2 piece Head, so you can change the tips. - $98.40

Helpful for my arms 02/05/2019
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 03/22/2018
By Sam Shen
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.

Hammer and tips 12/29/2021
By Miguel Cortel
Hi Kim, Thank you indeed for your help selecting the items.
Products looks of very good quality. Your website was easy to navigate.
I had my doubts about the tip required for of my Schimmel piano. As indicated in your web site, the hammer included a tip #2. It was good that I purchased in addition the tip #1. This was the right tip for my piano.

Tuning Lever 07/25/2013
By David Folsom
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.

It fits as promised 07/22/2021
By Rick Elliott
I was unsure of the proper tool to buy for an old, obscure piano I wanted to tune. Beth pointed me in the right direction. I made the plunge. Warehouse was local. It got to my house very soon and it fits the piano! I'm very happy. The piano sounds great now! Thank you Beth!
