Expert Piano Tuning by Qualified Piano Tuner, Technician.
As you are looking at my site, the chances are that you are looking to have your piano tuned. May be it hasn't been tuned for a while or you have just acquired it and want it to be put back into tune.
Unlike say a guitar that has to be tuned every time you play, a piano is designed to be stable and give many months of use before retuning. But there are factors that can aid and others that can hinder a piano's tuning being more stable. Factors such as, the condition of the strings and tuning pins, the string bridges and the Piano Sound Board, the pin block that holds the tuning pins. The environment the piano is kept in can affect the tuning stability, if it is too damp or too dry. Often central heating radiators in the room it is kept in, if they are too high can dry the air out and in turn the piano. It is often good have radiators next to a piano turned lower, and or a Piano Humidifier fitted to compensate for the dry air in such cases. All these factors can have an effect on how often a piano may need tuning.
But a piano will change naturally with the seasons as the wood expands and contracts, so it is always good to have a piano retuned at least once a year, preferably twice a year to allow for the change of the seasons. If you are playing every day with many hours of daily use, even every three to five months is not unusual if the piano gets a lot of use.
