Hello - I recently asked a tuner to do a little voicing on my 25 year old U1- I showed her the notes that I thought stuck out - I thought they sounded harsh compared to the others. I didn't watch what she did but now they stick out the other way...they sound muffled and more quiet than the other keys. Will the keys become more even over time as the newly voiced ones are played? Can this be fixed? Is it possible that these hammers have been worked w/too much and have been ruined?

You need to be there for the voicing. We can't voice it to our liking, we need to voice it to your liking otherwise, we're guessing how you like it.

It can be brought back up again with a little hammer filing probably.

Are they ruined? Impossible to tell from here. Depends on how experienced she was in her voicing skills...

I think I'd like to have someone else come take a look at it and try to even out the sound. Does the voicer need to be experienced w/Yamaha in particular? Any recommendations for good voicer in the Washington DC area?

It's hard to imagine anyone with good voicing skills not having experience with Yamaha -- they're the biggest-sellng piano in the country, and tend toward the bright side, so commonly need periodic voicing.

Wait a few months. After all, you waited 25 years the last time.
