SERVICES (Contact for Rates)
  • TUNING
  • Regular maintenance tuning: (piano is tuned at least yearly)

    Pitch correction tuning: pianos can be very out of tune for a number of reasons:
    extreme swings in the environment, too long between tunings, moving, neglect...

    Pianos which are very out-of-tune require a special tuning called a pitch correction. This tuning brings the piano safely back to standard "A440" pitch. This process may need more than one pitch correction and/or multiple visits to 'stabilize' the piano.
