NEW ONLINE COURSE!
This voicing method was designed by my mentor Dr. Jack P. Hamilton. The Rapid Voicer System will revolutionize the way you approach voicing. This amazing new system makes service voicing attainable for all technicians. It is the only voicing method ever developed which contains precise and controlled elements for voicing a piano up or down quickly.
Are you willing to try it?
I have received the tools with many thanks. I have already voiced my piano at home a 25 years old Korean Piano who’s hammer heads became hard like a rock with an extremely bright sound. Refacing in the past did not help much. The result : Pure Magic! The tone of the piano came back with only one incision. And the most important it is so easy to do with the rapid tools.

A note from Jack:
I have collected this information over the past 30 years and have used it at our piano store to voice thousands of pianos. At our store, these techniques have successfully assisted in the sale of millions of dollars of pianos from coast to coast. I personally know other great technicians who have tested the Rapid Voicer tools and I have received wonderful testimonials from them about their success. They report that it is the quickest way they have ever been able to perform voicing and produce exactly what they want every time. This system provides you with the tools and methods to perform extremely accurate voicing in a fraction of the time required by other methods and it works wonderfully on any type or brand of piano. Once you learn, test, and embrace this method you will have an immediate advantage in the field of piano technology and voicing.
What Technicians say about the RAPID VOICER
…I placed the keyframe back in the piano, took a deep breath, and began to play. I found myself saying, “Oh, my.., oh my…” The sweetness had returned to my piano, without loss of power!

I received the Rapid Voicer kit yesterday and was anxious to try it out on my 6’1” grand. After about 13 years of regular playing, it had become very bright. As a result, I found myself playing less often! I watched your excellent video and read over the text that you provided. The instructions were very clearly presented and reassuring, as I have always approached the strike point with extreme caution.
After completing the initial voicing of the entire piano, I placed the keyframe back in the piano, took a deep breath, and began to play. I found myself saying, “Oh, my.., oh my…” The sweetness had returned to my piano, without loss of power (just as you promised). After a few touch-ups with the pick tool, I gave it a complete test of just about every type of music I could. Bach was clean and mellow, without any loss of clarity. Chopin’s “Raindrop Prelude”, with all of the repeated notes, was a joy to play. (In fact, it was the piece which frustrated me enough to seek out new voicing methods). I played pieces with lots of inner voices to see if they would still project appropriately – they did!! I majored in piano and know what the instrument should be able to do – I was ecstatic, to say the least!
Eric, I don’t mean to go on so long, but I am so thankful that I stumbled upon your tools and technique. It is, indeed, a fast and precise way to effect voicing without dealing with traditional voicing needles. I have often been frustrated with them and found it very time consuming and somewhat of a gamble to get things just right and not go too far in any of the voicing areas.
I have read some skeptical reviews of your technique on various piano bulletin boards online. All I can say is, they need to try it before they attempt to make criticisms! Every new idea is met with resistance from the “old guard” and this is no different. Where would piano technology be if we never innovated? (I also noted that none of the critics had actually tried your method, interesting…..
In my 30 years of piano work, I’m excited to have found such a “quickly and dirty” (to quote the skeptics on the Piano World website) method to address voicing. (They should refer to it as “quick and sweet”!) I wish you all the best in promoting your concept with technicians. Do not let them dissuade you, but rather challenge them to try it !! What do they have to lose, really? They can always go back to what they have been doing if they don’t like it…chopping away at hammers with needles like a lumberjack.
My next purchase will be your new tuning hammer. I think I will put it on my Christmas list! Keep innovating, Eric, and Godspeed, my friend.
