I've been a professional piano tuner for 40 years (I started young!) and I've seen just about every size and shape of piano there is. If you'd like a piano tuned, or if you just want to ask for some advice, please call me. I give free impartial advice and new customers are always welcome.
Tuning a piano normally takes around an hour. If the pitch needs to be raised the piano will have to be tuned twice - normally during the same visit - and this would take perhaps an hour and a half and cost more. I can't tell if a piano needs the pitch raised until I see it.
Pianos go out of tune whether they're played or not. Mainly they're affected by changes in temperature and humidity and by being moved. Try not to place your piano – especially an older one – near a radiator. If a piano's been moved allow 3 – 4 weeks for it to settle before having it tuned.
If I find a piano is untunable I'll be honest and say so and simply charge a call out fee (the charge may vary depending on how far I've travelled).
£55.00 for a straight forward tuning, £80.00 for a pitch raise provided the venue is within a ten mile radius of my home address.
£60.00, and £90.00 anywhere outside that radius.
I do minor repairs such as replacing broken strings or freeing up sticking notes. For larger repairs or reconditioning I will be happy to recommend a qualified technician.
I make every effort to arrive at my appointments on time. However, I do sometimes have to rely on public transport. If, for example, the trains are late, so am I! If I'm held up I will call you from my mobile phone to let you know the situation.
