Choose from these service options:
Standard Tuning – Standard tuning with no extra adjustments or repairs. (Pitch raise may be needed on pianos not tuned in a while.)
Standard Tuning with Pitch Raise – Required for pianos that have not been tuned for a while and are significantly under pitch.
What is a Pitch Raise on a piano — Due to environmental conditions and/or length of time between tunings, a piano may drop significantly in pitch. This requires the piano technician to make two passes through all 200 piano strings; the first pass to “rough in” the tuning, and the second to fine tune to concert pitch. Regular tunings (at least twice a year) and a stable environment with regards to temperature and humidity help keep your piano in good working order.
Interior Cleaning – Upright Pianos – Vacuum bottom of piano behind panel.
Additional Cleaning Services – Additional cleaning services are available such as string cleaning, cleaning of the action, tuning pins, keys, and cabinet. Cost to be assessed at time of visit.
Piano evaluation – This includes examination of the piano and estimate for services needed. If service is completed at the time of the visit, fee is applied toward total cost.
