Home sweet home. I am just back !

FOUR LONG YEARS have past since my last trip to Europe. Yet after all the events, catching up with relatives, i had the opportunity to dust away my German language skill to meet my friendly colleagues of the BDK in the annual meeting in Rostock this year. 

Coming through Saxony, I had the compliment to visit the piano firm August Förster in Löbau. #AugustFörster in the center of that lovely city, the family business piano maker has kept the historical building where piano has been produced since the 19th century. 

Long tradition piano maker, I could witness the dedicated craftmanshift making pianos by hand, and by so the instrument being made in Germany in the pur tradition of heritage piano manufacturer.

Until you travel to witness Saxony beauty, you can find August Förster pianos displayed in House of Pianos in South Melbourne. If you have any questions about them, I am happy to testify myself as piano technician and factory worker of their quality and of their German thruthfullness.

adsilent 2 retrofitting

Piano Fellow Team is proud to stock and install adsilent systems!

After more than 20 years as a piano technician, I am glad today to distribute adsilent’s latest retrofitted systems, in my opinion the best in the market. User friendly, and efficient for enjoyable daily usage!

Play whenever you like, day or night for yourself or for your audience without worrying about the noise.

You own an upright or a grand piano? Wish to play outside convenient hours? Difficulties to play anytime of the day are multiple. Neighbourhood? Infant sleeping? This is no longer an issue with adsilent which mutes your lovely piano on demand and instead plays through a headphone, at the flick of a switch 24/7!

Its intuitive display and classic design is compatible with 99% of acoustic pianos in the market. Resilience and quality made in Germany. The system is also used in new reputable European made pianos.

The adsilent sound samples are the best in the market, as good as on stage. And it is so easy to use!

The adsilent is Bluetooth enabled. Simply connect your phone using the free app, and in a slide select the instrument you want to play… piano, vibraphone or even church organ! You can practice with the metronome by choosing the rhythm on the screen, transpose and also record tunes to share with your music enthusiast friends!  It comes with 2 headphone jack entries, so educators can also teach in silence!

Seniors living in retirement villages love the adsilent; it is so easy to use! Just flick the lever and switch on, the piano is ready to be played, even in the quiet hours!

The professional pianists are also equipped with adsilent their grand pianos. Unlike its competitors, the exclusive set of bars allows the silencer system to operate, without compromising the quality of the touch. The midi interface allows computers to be connected directly to the popular composition programs, or broadcast a performance online without microphone!

Don’t hesitate to inquire for your piano, and enjoy the convenience of the latest piano technology!

At Home

Use the adsilent system at home during the day or at night. As a result your housemates and neighbours can calmly pursue their hobbies.

Record & Play

Record part of a four-hand piece. While playing your recording – play along – that way you can practice four-hand pieces, also when your partner isn’t available. Or, you want to record your performance and send it to your friends, relatives or teachers or you want to further process it digitally? This is all possible with the adsilent! Record MIDI data and use it directly with the adsilent 2 app*. Connect adsilent directly via cable to your computer or stereo system to record your performance in audio format.

Ideal for Learning

Watch your teacher via YouTube or video conference on the tablet. The sound from the teacher is sent into the adsilent 2 via LINE IN. In the headphones you hear your piano playing and the lesson from the teacher. Several students can practice at the same time at the music school. Students can listen to the played exercises via headphones. The piano teacher can plug in a second headphone and listen to his student at any time.

Smartphone-App

adsilent offers different control possibilities. You can operate it by pressing a button at the piano or directly from your mobile phone via Bluetooth**. (Apple iOS and Androids apps are available for free)

Combine with Music System

adsilent can also be added to a player system as a recording system. This combination, will enable you to record your piano performance and play it back live on your player system (e.g. PianoDisc iQ / PRODIGY).

The Best Features of adsilent

* Additional function via adsilent app
** Bluetooth MIDI function only available for smartphones and tablet computers

About me...

Welcome to my website, my name is Vincent Tarin, and I am a French/Australian piano tuner in Melbourne. Let me tell you a little about myself.

I started as an apprentice in 3 different stores in France over 4 years, and graduated from The Itemm Academy, Le Mans as a fully certified piano tuner. I then immigrated to Ireland where I was a full time technician for 5 years. Then I move to Germany and worked for a piano factory, as a certified concert piano technician.

My journey lead me interestingly back to my old school, as a teacher this time, and to Germany to see growth of the industry. In a nutshell, I am experienced in workshop, clientel service, concert and factory work.

I have developed over the years contacts with piano part suppliers, manufacturers and piano technicians in Europe and throughout the world. I am currently a member of the BDK, which is the German Piano technician guild. I chose the German guild because their members are, in my opinion, the most representative of the piano industries, which are in good number based in Germany.

Beside my native tongue French, I can of course speak English, German, and have some understanding of Spanish and Russian. My travels have allowed me to bring techniques, products and ideas to the benefit of the Australian public, which I am pleased to serve.
