Tuning & Repair
The question often comes up, “How often should we have
the piano tuned?” The answer is really as simple as, “As
often as you want it in tune.”
People seem to have no problem tuning their guitar every time they
play it, accepting this as normal while at the same time, after
several years, wonder if it is time to tune the piano yet.
Many performance pianos are tuned perhaps monthly or more often
than that even.
The less casual pianist at home usually can do alright with tuning
once a year however, when they air-conditioning goes off and the
heat comes on, the piano goes through some significant upheaval.
As well the reverse is true so you will have the most consistent
result by correcting the tuning on your piano after the two major
seasonal changes. If you wait until December and then until June
you can beat the worst of your tuning issues due to seasonal change.
Tuning costs vary a little depending on distance and how long it
has been since the piano was last tuned
Repair of various mechanical problems are considered generally
not part of the tuning process and therefore are billed over and
above the cost of the tuning service call.
Older pianos are of course more apt to require repair though a
lot of these are just reasonable wear & tear like replacing
the brakes or tires on your car. We expect to spend some money
for up-keep on our cars and the same is true for the piano. With
a little maintenance it will serve you well.
If the instrument has loose tuning pins, sometimes we can address
the problem some by tapping them into the piano a little farther
which may add to their tightness.
Occasionally an older piano needs to be left tuned at a lower pitch
than standard A-440. Although this is not acceptable to most professional
musicians it is quite often not an issue for the more casual pianist.
As long as the piano will tune to itself with some stability, this
is all that is needed to start out a beginning student or the more
seasoned player who can enjoy it just fine despite the problem
