We take pride in delivering prompt world-class service & string covers to all of our customers.
Read what some of our satisfied clients have said about us!
I’m writing to tell you about how pleased we are with the 30 or so string covers we ordered from you. Delivery was prompt and the workmanship is consistently first-rate. We placed the covers in all our new practice room Steinways and Bostons and the investment has already paid dividends in keeping the instruments clean and protected from minor spills. There is also no sign of any string rust from the occasional condensation we experience here due to students leaving windows open. I would wholeheartedly recommend your covers to anyone wishing to protect the major investment their piano represents.

You've got a great business going. Your covers fit. They arrive promptly and the price is more than fair. You've got my business for as long as I continue to work.

After 30 years in the piano service business, I found three elements that my clients most respond to. Prompt and courteous service, High quality products, and a professional business relationship.
I have experienced all these attributes in my business relationship with you and your company
The Sample kit and brochures you’ve supplied have given me the business tools needed in demonstrating to my clients the added value of using your high quality string covers in protecting their investment in a fine quality piano.
Thank you for your prompt response to my order requests along with your immediate turn around in shipping your product. I will continue to offer all my clients the benefits of Dawson String Covers.

I have used them and recommended them for years. There is no single item that protects the piano more. Simple, easy and technicians love them.
Hi Clark,I installed the string cover today and was very pleased with the fit and ease of installing. I like that the battens are already in place and will not move out of location, since the pockets that the wood goes into are sewn in place. The cover also unpacks much easier than the previous product that I have sold.Thanks for your quick response concerning delivery!Stay tuned,

Clark- yesterday you mentioned that after you placed an ad, you got lots of orders - good for you and the business. Why do I care? You provide a service at a price and a turn-around time that is superior to any competition that I have seen in this part of the business. I would like nothing more to see your business succeed. Not because you're located 'up the road', because of what I just said about price and especially turn-around time. For example:The order I just placed for the Pearl River- that client will be leaving shortly for the month..they will be back by Jan.6. I told them we will make an appointment on Jan.8 to install the String Cover. I could not make that appointment with the other string cover maker that I use to use because it would not have arrived by then. Making that appointment when they got back assures the client it would be here. You have to admit that's an assurance that can not be measured for customer satisfaction. The client 'assumes' the date would be fine. In the past, if I were to place the order with someone else, there would be no assurance that the cover would be there at that time they returned back..and then you would have to wait for it to arrive and THEN make the appointment to install. This in my opinion is hardly customer satisfaction in their case or MY case.Let me know how I can help your business succeed besides ordering..!!

"Dawson's String Covers fit well and are made of fine materials and sewn beautifully. The turn around time after ordering is amazing as well."Brian Janey Piano TechnicianAllegro Piano ServiceCalifornia
Hi Clark.. Man- you are fast. It is a pleasure to work with you and I think your product is a sound investment and is a nobrainer. I have seen far to many pianos destroyed by moisture.My string cover arrived the other day and I put it in this morning. It fits and looks great! Just in time too since the humidity is picking up and the heat index has been over 100 a day this past week. I will definitely place all my future orders with you. The samples will be a big help- I am going to take pictures of the cover in my Yamaha G2 so customers know what it looks like and how it lays in the piano. My cover looks great and fits like a glove. I am really glad its in the piano because the heat index and r/h has been unusually high for this early in the summer.

Finally caught up with the customer and got the string cover installed on the C7 Yamaha. Looks great, thank you for the great service. Where have you been all these years?

I got the Yamaha C-5 string cover and new swatches thanks, both covers were great! The customers loved them! I was able to use the sales tool kit the other day, the husband was not home “ it was his piano” so I talked to his wife and was able to easily show her how the cover worked and I was able to leave her the nice info card. I will follow up with them this week and hopefully be ordering another cover.

'Tis the season - to be busy! I would like to order a string cover for a Steinway L - black material, greek key stitch with red thread. I'm amazed at how these things almost sell themselves - I'm not a hard sell kind of guy - I do little more than bring it up, mention a few of the benefits... and there you go.
Jeff Stickney RPT
I have been a piano technician in San DIego for about 10 years and highly recommend Dawson String Covers. The string covers they make are excellent and made of the highest quality materials. They always deliver on time and Clark has gone the extra mile to provide that "extra-mile" service.
Their product and integrity are first class and I am very happy to recommend them.
Joe Garrison - piano technician
The string cover got here two days ago. The color is really nice and it looks good in the piano. I'm so glad the sound of the piano hasn't been affected by the string cover. And I'm glad I can leave the piano open now without having to worry about the DUST!!!
Thanks so much,
Actual recent email from piano tuner/technician Jim Kelly...
A Dawson String Cover saved a K Kawai Grand:
Hey Clark… I drove to Hilton Head Thursday to inspect the Kawai that got wet from a bathtub leak above it. When I got there the piano had been moved to the side and a guy was on a ladder with his heat through the ceiling tracing the leak. Evidently it is a Jacuzzi tub and leaks can be tough to track down. Anyway the customer told me she heard dripping and looked in and saw a piece of the ceiling on the top of the piano. She keeps the lid down and her Dawson string cover on all the time. When she opened the lid there was a pool of water on top of the blanket in the bottom left corner. There had been enough water that it drained onto the left cheek block and water was dripping from the screw holding the cheek block. I had one heck of a time getting the block out so I could pull out the action. After prying, pulling and just before I was going to my van to gets some M80 blockbusters the block came free. It was damp to the touch so I suspect the locator dowel had swollen in the keybed locator hole. Anyway- amazing- no water on the key bed, key frame, soundboard, keyfelts, key sticks, dampers hammers etc. Nothing underneath indicating water damage. The owner was extremely grateful that she listened to me and bought a cover. I know it saved the piano.
I feel fortunate to have found a maker/supplier as reliable as Dawson String Covers. Your products are of the highest quality and you have gone out of your way to provide our customers with super fast shipping and excellent service. When I place my orders via e-mail, you respond immediately with a confirmation. Compared to the service and prices of other string cover manufactures we have used, Dawson Strings Covers is the best!

My 1917 "O" Steinway is loving the string cover! I have to tell you it does help maintain a better tuning stability more than I thought it would. As well, my piano in my family room is not far from the kitchen and in a high-traffic area where lots of dust gets kicked up. The strings and soundboard remain dust-free. The dust cover does help maintain tuning stability, especially as humidity levels change inside my home.
"I wish to take this chance to laud you for the beautiful string covers you are producing. My customers are simply ecstatic after I install them. For years I have either been installing felt covers with no battens that sag on the strings exacerbating the rusting problem or heavy vinyl covers that sag on the strings muffling the tone. Finally I have a string cover to sell that makes sense and is of extremely high quality. Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to add your product to my client offerings.

The string cover arrived today and it fits perfectly. Looks very nice and now I don’t have to worry about my strings rusting. Thank you very much to you & my piano tuner for recommending one. You get 5 stars in my book.
The cover is beautiful and very well constructed.
I am very pleased with it!
Thanks to you and your wife
My piano string cover is sitting prettily on the soundboard now.
I received it a few days ago. White, with red Greek stitch. And I am pleased! Both with the product and not having to worry about dust on the soundboard.
