Description of service

Normally I have my piano tuned twice per year. So, I am aware of the procedure. This time a piano technician came to my apartment in order to tune my piano. Unfortunately, during the regularly scheduled piano tuning, a problem came up, i.e. a key was stuck. It was not a very serious problem and it was easy to be fixed. The technician stayed at my apartment at about four hours in order to tune the piano and fix the problem. He repaired the key for free of charge, so I paid him $140 only for the tuning.

Review of Service

The service was great! The technician was very polite and the most important was an expert, so he knew exactly what to do. He tuned my piano with accuracy and he fixed the problem with the key without charging me an extra amount of money! I didn't find anything bad with the service at all. I feel that the service was a good value for the price.


A piano is tuned to the international pitch standard of A-440 Hz.So, if a piano has gone without tuning for a long period of time (more than a year), its pitch may have dropped far below A-440. Subsequently bringing each string to the proper pitch greatly increases the tension in your piano, making it, and the resultant tuning unstable. In these instances, a pitch raise is necessary prior to a fine tuning. In this case you are going to pay more and it is not good for the piano, too. Therefore, have in mind that you must tune your piano at least once per year.
