When should my piano be tuned?

Our recommendation is concurrent with the manufacturers, that each piano be tuned every 6 month, although some of our customers find once a year to be adequate. If a piano is being used frequently, more regular intervals will better allow us to refine the tuning. Pianos should always be tuned prior to concerts and important performances and we also offer Emergency/last minute concert tuning. Pianos which have not been tuned for a number of years often drop in pitch. If this is the case with your piano, it will require pitch-raising to re-establish the correct pitch (A440) before it can be tuned. There is an additional charge for this. If a piano has been unused, it will commonly need additional work to make it serviceable again.

Basic Tuning cost?

A standard tuning in the greater Portland area cost $175. If the instrument is unserviceable there will be a $45 travel fee.

Is my piano covered by insurance?

Many household insurance policies usually require notification to cover musical instruments over a specified value under an additional writer. Call your insurance company and ask specifically if your piano is covered.

I'm moving, how do I move my piano?

Do not move the piano yourself. Pianos weigh hundreds to thousands of pounds. It is never worth the risk of injuring yourself or causing damage to your instrument or home. We recommend hiring a piano mover who can properly inspect and transport your investment.

What is the best place for my piano?

A stable environment is best. Such as against an interior wall, out of direct sunlight, not near a heat exchange vent and not in any place where it will be exposed to frequent temperature changes. Extreme changes of humidity and/or temperature along with moving the instrument will make tuning unstable and could even permanently damage components of your piano. Excessive humidity will swell timber and felt, causing sluggish action mechanisms and keys which stick. Excessive dryness will split timber, break glue joints and cause loose, noisy mechanisms that create their own sounds while you are playing your music.

Avoid: damp, drafty,  or dry air, direct sunlight, close proximity to fires, heaters, central heating vents, underfloor heating and radiators.
