It doesn’t matter how modern or sophisticated an electronic tuning device might be, you will hear the difference and you will not be satisfied with a tuning done with an electronic device.
If you own an antique piano, square piano, antique or new harpsichord, pump organ, or any other rarity I will tune such pianos as well. And yes, they can be tuned, if you own the right tools and know how!
In some cases, the tuning might not hold due to the age of the instrument. Then I will restore your treasure and family heirloom, it most definitely has not to go to the dumps! I am equally excited to work on your regular upright or grand piano – any age, any size, any brand as long as it is an acoustic keyboard instrument.
The average piano has 225 strings. Each string has a different frequency and pitch and must be tuned to the other strings of the piano. These strings produce the sound of your piano.
Over time the strings stretch due to tension and humidity fluctuations which causes the soundboard to shrink and expand. The movement of the wood is in direct correlation with the humidity and causes the piano get out of tune.
