"This lever handles beautifully.  The majority of its weight is at the ball, which not only allows you the ability to feel the most minute movements, but makes for easy repositioning of the tip without ever having to take your hand off the ball."

MATT CRUDO, RPT & 88XR LEVER

"I also have the quick change tip technology. All carbon fiber / wood technology.  In my opinion Randy raised the bar on the 2 industry standards."  

WILLIAM TROTMAN,  RPT & SMARTLEVER

"He's created a tuning lever that's light and well-balanced, with a carbon-fiber core that's absolutely rigid and transfers the most subtle information from the tuning pin to my hand.  It's not only an excellent tool, it's a work of art, worthy of some of the pianos I'm fortunate enough to have in my care. It's not the cheapest.  But neither are the pianos I prefer to service.  And when I consider the time he likely spent in its creation, a bargain..  Some call it a hammer.  Others a lever, or wrench.  But this.. this is a wand."

"I love my hammer!!!!! I’ve used it twice so far and it’s my new “go to”. I tuned a Wurlitzer spinet yesterday and a high gloss Yamaha today. I think it was shinier than the Yamaha, hahaha! I was able to stand while I tune, which I never do with my impact hammer. And it’s soooooo light! Beautiful work Randy."

REBECCA KAYORIE, OWNER OF 2 SMARTLEVERS

“Being able to customize the tool for the size and look I wanted, made it worth it the most to me!”

RICH LINDAHL, SMARTLEVER

"The first thing is I love how light it is because it allows me to move it from tuning pin to tuning pin really quickly.  And this being the case it did cut my tuning time down significantly even from the first time I used it.  It’s beautifully made and you were so great to work with!"

JENNIFER GOLD, SMARTLEVER

Screen+Shot+2021-09-07+at+4.05.40+PM.png

"It replaced my Fujan lever upon trying my shiny new custom SmartLever! The interchangeable tips is extremely seamless! Also I now love that my hammer has a ton of personality and my clients will go ‘what kind of tuning lever is that!?"

WILLIAM MON, SMARTLEVER

Screen+Shot+2021-09-07+at+4.05.14+PM.png

"Love love love my lever. It does what you tell it to and it instills a sense of pride in my work."
