Ask your piano question  

 

 

1. How often should I have my piano tuned?

The Piano Technicians Guild recommends tuning a piano every 6 months. Tuning is considered standard maintenance and is crucial for insuring the integrity and worth of your instrument. Even if the instrument is not played, it must be tuned. Why? Inside your piano a metal harp or plate supports the strings. The harp holds approximately 20 tons of tension. Regular tuning maintains this tension evenly on the plate. If not properly and regularly tuned, tension on the piano’s plate may become uneven. Eventually this condition can lead to sustained damage to your piano. Our piano tuners are certified technicians with extensive tuning and repair experience. They are available by appointment by calling our showroom at 804-358-1929.

2. Does my piano need to be tuned after it is moved?

Changes in humidity affect tuning more than moving. If you are moving your piano from one room to another, or even from one building, humidity levels won’t change drastically and the piano probably won’t need to be tuned. However, if your piano is being moved a long distance, climate conditions will probably change and your piano will need tuning. It is best to allow your piano to acclimate for several weeks before having it tuned.
