Cunningham Piano Maintenance & Restoration Services

When service is required after a restoration, Cunningham has the unique position of having world-class rebuilders, concertizers, and finishers at the disposal of our clientele. These gentlemen have one purpose – to keep your instruments performing at their best for many years.


Caring for Your Piano

To ensure that your piano sounds its very best, we recommend having your piano tuned twice a year when the seasons change. Regular tunings will also help our technicians address minor mechanical issues that can prolong the life of your piano when addressed quickly. If your piano is subject to changes in temperature or humidity, we also recommend having a humidity-control system installed to keep your piano in tune longer, prevent soundboard cracks, and avoid costly keyboard action problems down the road.
