Frequently Asked Questions

What are the benefits of regularly tuning my piano?

Regularly tuning your piano has many benefits, including ensuring that it produces accurate and pleasing tones, enhancing the instrument's longevity and preventing minor issues from developing into larger ones. It can also help maintain the value of the piano, making it a worthwhile investment.

What problems occur if a piano is left without being tuned for a period of time?

A piano left without tuning for an extended period may experience pitch instability, inconsistent tonality, and even string breakage, which can cause costly repairs. The sound quality will also deteriorate, making the instrument less enjoyable to play.

How often should I get my piano tuned?

It is recommended to get your piano tuned at least once a year. However, the frequency may vary based on factors like how often the piano is played, its age, and the instrument's location. Professional technicians can advise on the best tuning schedule based on your piano's needs.

How do I protect my piano from insect damage or excessive moisture?

Insects and excessive moisture can cause significant damage to a piano's wood and can lead to costly repairs. Protect your piano from insect damage by regularly cleaning the instrument and keeping it in a dry area. Avoid placing it near windows, doors or vents. Use a dehumidifier to keep the humidity levels in check and store the piano in a controlled environment if possible.
