Celesta service and repairs

The celesta is a complex, handcrafted, mechanical musical instrument that is made primarily from natural materials wood.

To much humidity can lead to mould, rusting of the sound plates and wires and swelling of the wood – dry air causes cracks in the wood. The ideal humidity for your celesta should be between 45% – 60%. The rooms should not be subject to strong temperature fluctuations. We recommend a temperature of 18-23 degrees Celsius. It is advisable to check both values using a thermo-/hygrometer.

Our celesta instruments are very solidly built and have a long life, a caretaking handling required, but also partly dependent on the maintenance quality.

Depending on the intensity of use the celesta should be serviced regularly. The structural parts of the musical mechanism and the damping be regulated thereby to ensure optimum sound and optimum variety. A Celesta service must be performed by an expert Celesta technicians whose qualifications must be officially certified.

We recommend that you carry out a basic/-regulation service every 2-3 years.
