Get To Know Tuning
When keys on a piano are pressed, felt-covered hammers strike metal strings wound around pins embedded in a layered block of hardwood. When those pins are turned, the string tension is adjusted, changing the pitch of each string. Tuning ensures that the sounds of the strings match and make the piano sound its best.
Your piano is a living, breathing miracle of artistic engineering and craftsmanship. Its organic components of wood, felt, leather, and other natural materials are subject to seasonal changes in temperature and humidity. As a result, your piano is constantly in a dynamic state of flux, which can affect its overall sound. One of the best ways to care for your piano and ensure its longevity is to have it tuned twice a year when the seasons change.
Our technical staff is highly trained and can offer services from concert tunings, action regulation and voicing, to major repairs.

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.
