- Make sure to have your piano checked once a year to keep your piano healthy, or it may need a major house call from the Doctor. Always best to have the piano checked yearly.
- New pianos should be ‘prepped’ (Regulated, checked over, tuned to A440) before they leave the show room. If you are not happy with a new piano after delivery, let it settle down for a while and bring up any issues with the technician when he comes to do the first tuning (usually within a few weeks of delivery).
- As with anything mechanical, a piano will wear out, go out of adjustment over the months and years and will need remedial work once in a while. For a domestic piano this may be as little as minor regulation and toning every few years, in fact some good tuners do this work each time they come to tune your piano.
- A Piano Technician and a Piano tuner are very different from each other based on their certified level and experience. Where they received their training and how much they know and how many they tune a week cannot only increase your odds of achieving the best tuning, but also repair your piano properly when needed.
- WARNING: There are many uncertified/untrained piano tuners in the piano tuning industry. It is important to select a certified technician in order to ensure the longevity of both the tuning and your piano.
