How often should I have my piano tuned?
Most manufacturers recommend that you service your piano once every six months for the best sound. This can include tuning and/or repairs, depending on your piano’s condition.
What are some brands of pianos to look for?
Here is a short list of piano brands: Baldwin, Wurlitzer, Chickering, Schimmel, Steinway & Sons, Mason and Hamlin, Yamaha, Kawai, Bosendorfer, Weber, Knabe, Kimball, Story and Clark, Kohler and Campbell, Boston, Young Chang, Samick, Petrof, and Kingsbury. There are many more names, but this is a short list of some of the most common ones you’ll find today.
If my piano isn’t being used, do I still need to have it tuned?
For many, a piano goes out of tune simply because the inside environment of their home changes with the seasons, not because of usage. Keeping your piano tuned regardless of usage is recommended to maintain the stability of your piano.
