Frequently asked questions
Q. How often does my piano need tuning?
A. The recommended period is six months, although this does depend on usage age of the piano and how stable an environment it is kept in.
Q. Should I get it tuned again this year? It still sounds fine!
A. Seasonal humidity changes are the biggest reason to maintain your piano every year. The pitch will drop over time, making it more time consuming when you do eventually have it tuned. As with all things, regular maintenance will pay off in the long run.
Q. What is included in your piano tuners' visit?
A. As well as the obvious tuning of your piano, we also check for wear and tear of the action and can advise when it may be necessary to replace parts. The pedal mechanism is also checked and regulated at a regular visit.
Q. How will I know when a tuning is advisable?
A. I send reminder cards which advise the date of your last tuning so you can make an appointment at your convenience.
