Piano Tuning: Price varies depending on travel distance and condition of the piano. Please allow 2-3 hours for full assessment and tuning.
Pitch Raise: May be required for pianos not tuned for several years. A pitch raise includes 2 tunings and minor repairs.
Full Cleaning: Includes lubricating keypins, vacuuming strings, and removal and vacuuming of panels, keys, and keybed.
Dampp Chasers: Installation of a piano humidity control system will keep your piano in tune longer and prevent damage from climate and environmental changes.
Our other services include Regulation, Voicing, and Repairs. Prices are based on an hourly rate depending on the difficulty of the service and if replacement parts are necessary. Please call to request an assessment.
Pianos not tuned every year can go flat and may require two tunings to bring the strings back up to standard pitch, known as a "pitch raise".
A piano left too long without tuning may not come up to standard pitch at all and has lost half of it's value.
If your piano technician can catch a problem when it first presents itself, we can often repair it before it becomes a major/expensive problem.
