Marty did an excellent job tuning my Yamaha baby grand piano. He was very professional and responsive to my requests. Definitely recommended.Oct 4, 2020Verified
Marty came and worked on an older piano I inherited from a friend’s parents. I had no idea of the history, just that it was very out of tune, dirty and had several sticky keys. After a couple hours of hard work from Marty it sounds & plays like a dream. He is a very friendly and conscientious person. Great to work with him, he’s going to be our regular tuner from now on!Sep 22, 2020Verified
We had a different tuner come in when we go this piano, and he did a lot of things wrong, so it actually sounded worse after tuning. Max came in and fixed all the issues and now it sounds SO much better!Aug 11, 2020Verified
Excellent work. The piano now sounds great and is more responsive. It has been probably thirty years since it was last tuned and it is now a pleasure to play it.Aug 5, 2020Verified
Marty was extremely responsive. Called and he had an opening the next day. Came out and got the piano tuned up and sounding great. I would recommend!Jul 14, 2020Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I am definitely not the cheapest piano technician in the market but I am not by any means the most expensive. I happen to know a number of technicians that actually charge $150 for a regular tuning where my basic price considerbly lower. As the old saying goes you get what you pay for stands very strong with me but I can assure you as my customer I will give you a very fair price for my expertise and you will be very happy with the results.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Basically, I have to be there to experience the piano's condition. I will tell the customer up front what the piano requires and how much it will cost. Sometimes a piano simply cannot be tuned because of various reasons and I will alert the customer to that without them spending an arm and a leg to find out that information. I truly find joy making a piano a better instrument but sometimes it just is not the case and I will let the customer know that. I really don't believe that somebody should spend good money after a bad instrument and I will let them know about that.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have had the honor and pleasure of working with Victor Benvenuto senior who not only showed me how to become a master piano technician but also taught me how to literally make new soundboards for pianos and install them. It is because of this vast knowledgement that I am considered to be the top piano technicians in the Philadelphia area. and yet I am very mindful of pricing my services so that they are affordable and that everyone who uses my services gets the biggest bang for the buck.
