Professional Piano Tuning

Pianos are complex instruments. The average 88 key piano has strings and pins under several tons of tension. Over the course of a year that tension will typically pull a piano's pitch down ten percent flat and require specialized skills and equipment to tune and maintain it. Tuning should be done annually.

Regular piano tuning meets the requirements of piano manufacturers. This may require a pitch raise to bring it back to standard pitch "A-440". It might also require additional attention. Professional piano technicians are trained to a higher standard and recognize minor problems.

Know the job is done right. Call Ed The Piano Tuner.

Pianos that are left flat for too long may not tolerate the stress of full tension strings and may require more than one tuning to bring them back to standard pitch. It might also require additional repairs.
