Tuning considerably affects the sound of pianos and grand pianos, and should be implemented at regular intervals. Tuning is also highly advisable at the beginning or end of the warm season. A tuning usually takes 1.5 hours, and includes cleaning the key surfaces as well as additional minor tasks. On our “Service Plan” page, we recommend a service schedule based on different styles of playing.
Should a perfectly tuned piano still exhibit a deficiency in tone, the finer settings in the mechanism or the firmness of the hammers may have changed. In this case, further maintenance work is necessary.
