Piano tuner, tuning, and repair in Baltimore, Md. Tuned for a small music studio in the warehouse district off Eastern Blvd today.

The piano was purchased for " a little bit of nothing" and the customer even moved it himself.

The piano is very banged up and was extremely dirty and in poor playing condition. At nearly a full step flat, it likely hadn't been tuned in several decades.

With great care, i raised the pitch and fine tune it to A440Hz without a single wire breaking.

When a piano sits for decades, rust develops on the piano wire, causing weak spots, which cause can breakage when increasing the tension while tuning.

In addition to the pitch raise and tuning, we also repaired the pedal lyre, the lid, and ivory key tops.

The piano sounded much better than anticipated and the customer was thrilled!

Piano tuning and repair today in Sterling, Va. This Baldwin Acrosonic spinet piano was picked up by our customer from a local music school.

Despite needing a variety of smaller repairs and having had improper repairs done in the past, the major components of the piano are in good shape (soundboard, pinblock, and bridges).

Our customer played as a child and is looking forward to playing again as an adult.

We'll be reshaping the hammers and replacing the monochord bass dampers at the next visit.

Piano tuning Mclean, Va

Tuned and repaired a lovely Kawai grand for a new client today in McLean, Va

Heat vent to the left of the piano is not ideal, adding excess dryness to the vicinity of the piano.

Piano tuner tuning and repair in Potomac, MD.

Sunday morning piano tuning is not uncommon this time of year. This was a new client for us and we enjoyed servicing their 2002 Steinway and Sons Model S grand piano.

We will be doing some voicing work at the next scheduled service appointment. This particular Steinway has some voicing issues in the bass and very high treble sections.
