A Return To Universal Standard Pitch
We will perform an extensive inspection of your piano before we start the tuning process. We inspect the soundboard, ribs (for separation from the soundboard which causes buzzing), plate, strings, keys, actions (internal mechanism), case, tuning pings, etc. After the initial checkup we will start the tuning process and get your piano up to a 440 (Universal standard pitch). This is very important when the piano is accompanied by other instruments.
The whole process can take about an hour and should be done twice a year. If your piano hasn’t been tuned for a long period of time (more than 2 years) it may need a pitch correction. Essentially this gets the piano back up to the 440 standard by tuning it twice or more and making sure the strings are at the correction tension so they will hold the proper tune.
