Should you tip piano tuners?

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.

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.

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.

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.

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. 

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. 

Reviews for Federal Way piano tuning professionals
Margaret T.
For my mother’s birthday, I got her piano tuned by AAA Piano Service. She was very impressed by the service and the professionalism of the tuner. He was friendly and easy to talk to. My mother was also quite impressed with his skill at playing the piano to check how the piano sounded once he was done.

Scott did an outstanding job of tuning my Baldwin Spinet. He is dependable (on time), knowledgeable (has been involved in piano tuning for years) and extremely interesting, as he shared stories of his musical journey through the years. I would DEFINATELY recommend Scott and he will be the ONLY piano tuner I call from now on.

I own a 1974 Kawai BL-51 studio upright piano. I play almost every day. It was a little over a year since the last tuning, had some double striking problems, a dead C# bass string and tonal balance issues. And, my trusted tuner retired. So I put in a request for AAA Piano Service on this site. Scott immediately responded and agreed to do the job, within a few days. Another service was unavailable till mid September and was more than I had ever paid before. As Scott was doing the work, we talked a lot and I discovered that he knew as much about music as I do!(maybe more?) I was also dreading the cost of what was needed. When Scott had tuned, removed the broken C# to be replaced, regulated and balanced the tonality and played some music as a test, I was pretty excited. It sounded like a brand new piano!! And, the cost was very reasonable. Each day since, I have been reveling in how great my old piano sounds! Bottom line is that now I can rest assured that Scott will take good care of my piano and at a reasonable price with top drawer knowledge, expertise and experience! Thank you, Scott
