Is your piano in need of tuning?
In order to keep proper string tension, it is normally recommended that pianos should be tuned twice per year, if moderately used. Some pianos I find to be exceptionally stable and need be tuned less frequently. For heavy or professional use more frequent tuning may be required. A piano brought into a house, or other new environment, should preferably be left for at least a couple of weeks to acclimatise to the humidity and temperature before being tuned.
I aim to tune pianos to standard ('concert') pitch. This is not always possible however if the pitch of the instrument has been allowed to drift too low. Pianos can be successfully tuned at a lower pitch; the greatest difficulty this will present is if other instruments are to be played with it. It will normally be possible to bring the pitch of the piano back up to standard pitch, but this is a lengthy process for which I usually charge double my normal fee, and may not be possible on some older instruments.
I charge £42 for a normal tuning, but please note that I am not now taking on new tuning customers.
If you're in need of a tuner and I haven't tuned your piano before, contact me here and depending where you live I'll refer you on to someone else.
