We can tune various kinds of piano
The type of tuning we will provide and the charge for it can depend on the piano to be tuned. Miniature pianos, except some Eavestaff models, can be relatively hard to tune due to their shorter, stiffer strings. There can also be difficulty with tuning older pianos, which can have corroded strings and hammers that, at their striking surface, have been worn flat. It may also be impossible for some older pianos to stay in tune due to the tuning pins no longer being gripped by the wrest plank – fluctuations in climatic conditions can cause the wooden wrest plank to expand and contract resulting in splits around the tuning pins, causing them to become loose and unable to retain the tension of the strings.
Over-damped pianos, which were produced until the 1930s, feature damper wires that impede the use of the muting wedge, a crucial tool for piano tuning. Tuning miniature, older, and over-damped pianos can therefore incur higher charges than basic tunings, as would our professional concert tunings.
You might also have to pay more if the piano is severely out of tune, as this could call for a pitch raise. This is a method where the piano is roughly tuned to make the pitch almost precisely correct before a fine tune is possible to carry out. We can work hard to meet various tuning needs.
