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. 

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.

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.

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.

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. 

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.

Ben is a great piano tuner. He was professional, personable, and on time. He confirmed the appointment, and worked with my schedule. He was thorough, knowledgable, and reasonable. And the piano sounds great. I will recommend him.

I highly recommend Artisan Piano Services. David was punctual, efficient, and immensely knowledgable. My piano has never sounded better. Additionally, the support staff is quite helpful. Absolutely a cut above other tuners I've used in the past.

Today Darin tuned my way out of tune 53 year old piano which included cleaning it, adjusting a noisy pedal, and some extra touches to get it sounding great again! I highly recommend to anyone in need of a piano tuner to hire Darin. He arrived 5 minutes early, explained everything he needed to do to my piano, was full of knowledge for me when I asked him a ton of questions, and has a fantastic personality! He knows what he is doing and prices are reasonable. Catch one of his concerts if you can as he is an amazing pianist! Will definitely hire him again. Thanks so much Darin! 🎼
