Is it worth tuning an old piano?

It may be worth tuning your old piano, especially if it’s highly valued or has sentimental value. Bring your piano to an expert piano tuner. They can assess your instrument and help you determine if it can be restored.

How often should you tune a piano?

Some experts recommend tuning your piano at least two or four times a year, according to the Piano Technicians Guild. You should always see what the manufacturer recommends for your specific piano. And you should schedule additional tunings as needed. 

Is piano tuning hard?

Tuning a piano can be difficult if you haven’t done it before and don’t have the correct tools. For example, you’ll need a piano tuning lever, tips, electronic chromatic tuner and mutes. If you don’t have the tools or experience, you might be better off hiring a professional to tune your piano.

Can a piano be too old to tune?

Many old pianos can be tuned. Consult a professional piano tuner to find out if they can tune your piano.

Can a piano be tuned after 20 years?

If you haven’t tuned your piano in 20 years, you can still bring it to a tuner for them to assess and perform a pitch raise. 

Why do my piano keys squeak?

If your piano keys are squeaking, it may be because something is stuck between the keys. Or, your piano may be dirty. You may be able to fix your keys. If not, hire a professional to take a look at the problem and perform the repairs.

Should you tip piano tuners?

Tipping piano tuners isn’t customary. If you had a great experience with a piano tuner, you can also show your appreciation by leaving a review on Thumbtack.

What happens if you don't tune a piano?

Tunings can help prevent damage and maintain your piano. When you tune your piano, you’re correcting its pitch. So if you go too long without tuning your piano, the pitch will likely drop — which can add tension to your piano’s structure, according to the Piano Technicians Guild. 

How long does piano tuning take?

Tuning your piano might take a few hours or less. Before your appointment, ask your piano tuner how long the process will take.

Simon is not only an excellent tuner, but he allowed my children to watch him work and took time to explain to them the process of piano tuning. I have found my permanent piano tuner.

Chris was great! Nice to see a piano tuner who has the skill and craft to set the temperament without an app. Tuned the piano well and even replaced some ivory keytops on my 100 year old steinway for free! Much prefer him to the last tuner I used, will definitely hire again.

Curtis was great to work with! He gave us a very honest assessment of our piano, and did quality work. Both of my dogs liked Curtis and he will be our new piano tuner from now on.

Thank you CWH Piano Tuning! We're currently working on a recording project and our piano needed some help. We were "in-between" piano tuners so we hadn't had our piano tuned for 3 years. I can't believe how much better it sounds! Highly recommended!

Curtis is excellent. I have a Ph.D. in music and am a pianist, so I am pretty fussy. He is, by far, the best piano tuner I have ever used. Hire him!!!
