Most piano owners wonder how often they need to have their piano tuned. Well the answer is, at least once a year - preferably every six months - because they will slowly go out of tune. Frames move with humidity changes, and strings stretch. If you leave it too long, the tone can drop noticeably below pitch, which then requires a more complex re-tuning strategy. What about piano maintenance? When they visit to tune your piano, they will check the mechanical state to see if it needs any maintenance.

What about trying to tune it yourself?

Well, the experts will say DON'T! This is a very delicate and precise process, with over 200 strings to get into precise tune. This needs proper training and experience to get it right. If you try to do this without knowing exactly what you are doing, you can put it seriously out of tune and even damage the piano. And that becomes expensive!

Other piano services? They carry out work in these areas: Reconditioning; Repairs; Polish Repairs, etc.
