Piano tuning advice


Colorado Springs piano tuning

Tuning is the underpinning of all piano care.  Piano makers design pianos to work best and sound best at A440.  Most piano manufacturers recommend that their instruments be tuned at least twice a year.

Keeping your piano in tune will not only help it to sound its best; it will also reduce the likelihood of   breaking strings during a tuning.   The longer you allow your piano to go without a tuning, the farther I or another technician will need to pull the pitch up, and the greater the probability of strings snapping under the tension.

Another benefit of having your piano tuned regularly is that your technician will tend to detect problems before they become serious.  Many of my clients have thanked me for informing them about situations that they would not otherwise have been aware of until those situations  had become troublesome.

It really does pay to keep your piano in tune, because tuning is a your piano’s foundational maintenance need.  I, therefore, highly recommend that you establish the habit of having your piano tuned twice a year.
