Pro showed up and was punctual and polite. Pro evaluated the needs of the piano and only charged for the tuning and cleaning since the 'extra-care' option I had chosen (and was willing to pay extra for) wasn't needed. Great work overallAug 3, 2020Verified
I could not be happier with the work they did on my piano. They were punctual, very professional, and the results were amazing. Hadn't had a tuning in over 3 years and my piano sounds amazing now.May 11, 2020Verified
Jonathan was excellent - tuned and repaired our antique piano and shared tips for upkeep. Sounds great! He even gave us a military discount.Jul 28, 2020Verified
Jonathan arrived on time and tuned my piano methodically. It took longer than normal because it had been about four years since the last tuning, but there was no extra charge. He had to come back to address a sticky key, and arrived as promised the day after I called him. No charge to correct that key and lubricate the remainder to prevent problems with others. My piano sounds great and plays the way I like it.Mar 24, 2020Verified
I took a chance from the other reviews on Thumbtack and ended up being so pleased and relieved with my choice. Jonathan was punctual, a really sweet guy and a total professional. Not only did he get my piano tuned, but insisted that he stay longer to give it a second go, since it had been so long since we'd had it worked on. And he charged the same amount that had been quoted originally. I was extremely happy and consider Jonathan and his company, Pianifico Professional Piano Care, our new tuner!Feb 12, 2020Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I charge $150 to tune. This includes tuning, and if a pitch raise is needed, that is included in the fee. It also includes an initial inspection of the overall condition of the piano, as well as recommendations for future care and other services to maximize performance and playability of the piano. In addition to tuning, minor mechanical adjustments to resolve common problems such as sticky or sluggish keys that don’t play well, or pedals not operating properly are included as long as they take no longer than 10 minutes to resolve. I also offer full service tuning packages which are best to address pianos that have been neglected for a long time and have needs that go beyond tuning and a few sticky keys I offer multi piano discounts of 10% off per tuning for 3 or more instruments serviced in the same location (building or premise). This is ideal for places such as churches or institutions that have multiple pianos needing service. I offer a 10% military discount to all active duty or retired military (this discount can not be combined with the multi piano discount).
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I began my training under the late Larry Crabb, RPT, who was a rebuilder in Atlanta GA. He specialized in complete repair, reconditioning, restoration, and rebuilding of pianos. Under his instruction, I completely refinished and rebuilt both an upright and grand piano and learned how to tune, maintain and service pianos. I have continued my training with special classes and seminars offered by the PTG (Piano Technicians Guild), by attending PTG conventions and by networking with local techs.
- What types of customers have you worked with?I have worked with many types of customers from home owners and those just starting to take lessons, to worship leaders and churches as well as accomplished amateurs and professional musicians. During my time in Georgia I managed my own clientele as well as the clients for the local piano dealer. I tuned and maintained pianos regularly for the local school system, for the Augusta Symphony and Augusta State University. I tuned and maintained pianos for the USC Aiken satellite campus, and took care of the pianos during the Joye in Aiken music festival held there each year. All of this has given me experience maintaining instruments in many different settings and situations.
