Professional Piano Services
Tuning, Repair, Regulation
Pianos need to be tuned regularly, every 6 to 12 months, to stay in their best playing shape. This is especially true in our area, where big changes in temperature and humidity throughout the year can cause tuning instability.
A standard tuning also includes an estimate of any repairs or additional service recommended. Cost: $150.
If your piano has not been tuned for some time, it will likely need a pitch raise to get the piano back to standard A440 pitch in preparation for fine tuning. The cost for a basic pitch raise is an additional $50.
Does your piano have a sticky key? Are the pedals squeaking? Does a note just not sound quite right? With up to 12,000 individual parts in a piano, there are many opportunities for things to break and negatively impact the performance of your piano.
A repair appointment includes a diagnosis of the problem as well as an estimate of a fair cost for repair. Minor repairs can often be fixed on the spot, but more major repairs will likely require a return visit.
Prices for repair depend on the cost of parts and time required. Base rate: $60/hour
Like any finely crafted machine, a piano sometimes needs more than regular tunings and basic repairs. Over time and with regular use the many parts of a piano can get out of alignment, keeping the piano from performing at its best. From full action and keyboard regulations to minor touch-up regulations, this service will make sure your piano is performing at its optimal level.
Regulation fees vary depending on what work needs to be done, with a base rate of $60/hour.
