To maximise your pianos
Standard Piano Tuning
Stephen Peters from Precision Piano Tuning is an Australasian Registered Piano Technician (A.R.P.T) and is also a member of both the Piano Tuners & Technicians Guild of Victoria and the APTTA. This is your assurance that your piano tuner meets the highest standards in aural piano tuning and repair work.
Where possible, your piano will be tuned to concert Pitch. (A440). Some older pianos are not stable at concert pitch, therefore a lower pitch may need to be set in order to achieve a stable tune across the piano.
Most manufacturers recommend pianos be tuned at 6 to 12 month intervals. This ensures a stable tune for longer periods of time between visits. A Standard tune normally takes between 1.5 to 2 hours to complete.
A pitch raise may be necessary if your piano hasn't been tuned for some time, or if your piano is subject to extreme changes in weather conditions over a prolonged period of time. The process requires the pitch of the piano to be brought up to concert pitch through a couple of quick tunes before a final tune is completed. This is normally completed in the same visit. Subsequent visits maybe necessary if the piano was originally well down on pitch. A pitch raise and tune generally takes around 2.5 hours to complete.
