Every time you press a key, the 50 or more parts between the key and the strings need to be perfectly aligned for just that one key to work properly. As parts wear from age and use, they need adjustments in order to play properly. If your piano has an uneven touch, a limited dynamic range, or sticking keys it is time to have your piano regulated.

 

When the action is properly regulated, your piano should have an even touch across the whole keyboard, controllable over its full dynamic range, and be smooth, consistent, and sensitive across the whole keyboard. Remember, no amount of practicing can compensate for a poorly maintained action.

"Excellent piano tuner! I had him over to take care of my recently purchased grand piano, and he made it sound amazing! It was all tuned up, plus he also went ahead and regulated the action so it would play more smoothly, and also voiced it as well. The piano sounds amazing now! Very satisfied :)"

Pitch Raising (Double-Tuning)

Master Piano Technician - Expert Piano Servicing - Your Piano Doctor

Haven't had your piano tuned in a long time? A double tuning, also known as a pitch raise, will bring your piano back to life!

Double Tuning, also known as Pitch Raising, is a special tuning process used on very out-of-tune pianos. Because they’re so far out of tune, they require a little more work than usual in order to make them sound their best.

Pianos typically go flat over time, and a major adjustment to the piano's pitch could be adding several hundred (or even thousands) of pounds of tension and makes for an unstable tuning.

The solution to this problem is to first start by bringing all the strings on the piano up to (and a little above) their target pitch. (The pitch-adjustment passes are basically just ballpark tunings) Once this is process is finished, the strings are much closer to their target pitch, and then I can start working on the fine-tuning.

My tuning appointments include:

- Pitch Raising (Double Tuning)

- Fine-tuning

- Cleaning and polishing of the piano

- Free minor repairs and adjustments (up to 20 minutes)

- Condition assessment

- Complimentary performance optimization (Minor voicing and regulation adjustments)

 

If your piano hasn’t been tuned in a while and also has some other issues such as sticking keys, dead keys, squeaky pedals, consider one of my Complete Service Packages that include piano tuning, along with additional repair, regulation, cleaning, and voicing services.

Choosing the right piano technician for you is an important decision. Not only are you trusting someone to service your expensive instrument, but you also want to find the best person who can make your piano sound and play its best. If you want to enjoy hearing the piano it needs to be in tune, and if you want to practice efficiently the piano has to play smoothly, evenly, and reliably. 

When I commit to service a piano,  I do more than just tune your piano. I want your piano to make beautiful music, so here are some of the other things I'm checking as I service your piano: 

  • How smoothly does the piano action play?

  • Is the touch even from note to note?

  • Can I easily control the shape and sound as I play?

  • How wide is the piano's dynamic range? 

  • Can I improve the piano's tone?

  • What can I do to help this piano fit your needs?

I care about my clients, and that's why I'm top rated for my professionalism, friendliness, and excellence

Not sure what your piano needs? Take the Service Quiz to find the best fit for your piano. 

Many pianos need more than just a simple tuning. Your piano is a complicated instrument, with over 3,000 parts that need to be adjusted and maintained from time to time. Often felt parts will wear out, keys will start to stick and make noise, pedals will squeak, or some keys will even stop working entirely! The tone of your piano can also change too as dust gathers inside the instrument and as the piano hammers become compressed from use or age.

 

If your piano has some of these issues, one of my Complete Service Packages is a great fit to take care of your piano! They include the piano tuning, as well as regulation adjustments, repairs and adjustments, voicing, and cleaning, and are your most cost-effective option!

 

There are two packages available:

 

The Essentials Package is designed for pianos that have been tuned within the past two years but have other issues that need to be addressed for proper playing (such as sticking keys, regulation issues, buzzes and odd noises, voicing problems, etc.)

 

It includes

  • fine-tuning of your piano

  • Voicing of the piano hammers in order to improve the piano's tone

  • Up to 30 minutes of free repairs so your piano functions properly

  • Up to 30 minutes of free Hammer voicing to improve the piano's tone

  • Cleaning of the piano keys, case, and soundboard.

 

Normally all of this would be $375, but as a package you save $125
