Prices include minor repairs and adjustments to the action, keys and pedals.
If it has been years since a piano’s last tuning, multiple passes up and down the scale are required to achieve a stable and fine piano tuning. A pitch raise/lower costs more due to the additional time required to completely tune the piano.
Over the years, pianos – like other valuable furniture – collect dust. However, pianos are much more difficult to clean than normal house items; properly cleaning the piano not only requires the correct tools, but the expertise and knowledge to do so. The end result is a longer life and a fuller, more beautiful sound from the instrument.
Please note that these prices are only an estimate, not a quote, for tuning or repair without having seen the piano first.
