Piano Tuning Services
The modern piano is designed to an A-440 pitch, this is considered to be the international standard. Our piano tuning technicians will ensure that your instrument remains true to its pitch. We will come to your home, at a time during the week that is convenient for you, to make this process as easy for you as we can.
Excellent piano maintenance is extremely important to keep your asset in top working order. A piano should be tuned regularly to keep it in excellent playing condition. In general, we recommend tuning your piano two times per year, but that may vary depending on the condition or age of the piano, and how it is stored. Changes in temperature and humidity can greatly effect the tune quality of your instrument, so it is best to maintain a consistant climate in your home. If possible, place your piano near or alongside an inside wall, and keep it away from direct sunlight. Should you have questions about piano placement or temperature or humidity, please ask your Schaeffer piano tuner.
