I'm so glad to have met Jeff. He's punctual, polite, and very professional. Since my piano hadn't been tuned for several years, Jeff explained that he would do a solid "maintenance" tuning and work with my budget. Jeff was a pleasure to talk to during his visit -- I learned a lot about tuning basics -- and he gave me some extra time just to ensure I was satisfied with the end result. I am trying to get back into playing piano (haven't applied myself since lessons as a kid) - and Jeff recommended a local jazz piano teacher. I'm absolutely thrilled to take the next step. I'll also be hiring Jeff @ In Tune Piano Services again for my next tune-up.
Jackson is a great piano tuner. He not only does that but always gives my baby grand a good cleaning. He even recommended a way to deal with the humidity of living in San Francisco. Hi highly recommend him!

A Note from Linda: In 1973, I was the very first female admitted to the Los Angeles Chapter of the PTG (Piano Technicians Guild). At that time, I was the third woman in the country admitted to the Guild. Breaking the glass ceiling was not easy. Tuning: A combination of aural (tuning by ear) and state-of-the-art electronic tuning helps achieve the most stable and precise tuning for each piano. Manufacturers recommend 2-4 tunings per year. Concert pianos require tuning immediately before each performance. It is important to note that all piano manufacturers recommend tuning your piano whether it is played or not. Routine service prolongs the life of your piano. Without periodic servicing, the instrument will deteriorate, causing potential expensive repairs at a later date. Pitch raise: A pitch raise is necessary when the piano has not been tuned regularly, thus causing the pitch to drop below standard pitch (A440). Pitch raises require 2 or more complete tunings that are done consecutively during the same visit. Repairs: Repairs can vary from something as simple as fixing a sticky key to something as complex as complete rebuilding of the piano. Regulating: Regulation is the adjustment of the piano due to the effects of wear and age. Voicing: Correcting the tone quality of the hammers. Reconditioning: With playing and age, the insides of the piano (the action) require maintenance to maintain performance. This work is done in the shop. The action of the piano is removed and then returned when the work is complete. Refurbishing: Bringing life back into the piano by renovating and restoring worn parts. Restringing: Time and humidity conditions can cause strings to become rusty or dead. Restringing is then necessary. Often, it is accompanied by complete rebuilding inside and out. Rebuilding: The art of completely restringing, repairing and refurbishing the soundboard and plate, together with replacing parts that have excessive wear, thus making the piano as good, if not better, than it was originally. Consultations and evaluations: When purchasing a used piano, it is always advisable for a member of the Piano Technicians Guild to evaluate the potential purchase. Examination of the instrument will reveal both major and minor problems and the corresponding costs to repair. It is just like having a used car examined by a mechanic before purchasing.
