Piano Tuning Information

Piano tuning and servicing - How often?
Three main factors affecting the performance of a piano need periodical attention:
  • Pitch - the pitch will drop if the piano is not tuned on a regular basis. The stability of its environment will very much determine how often it needs to be tuned.
    Twice a year is a good rule of thumb for an average piano in a domestic situation. Some old instruments may require more regular tuning.
  • Touch - the quality of the instrument, amount of use, and changes in its environment, will determine how often the piano action should be regulated. On average this is required about every five years.
  • Voicing (toning) - this is subject to the quality of the piano, and particularly the hammer felt.

Unevenness of tone can be remedied by skilful voicing of the hammers to give a good overall balance. On concert and musician's pianos this is done on a regular basis .

Care of your piano?
Your piano is a piece of valuable furniture: keep it clean and never put drinks, vases, or plants on it. Spilled liquids can cause serious damage, the repair of which may amount to a major overhaul. New pianos are generally finished in polyester or satin lacquer, which requires only to be wiped with a damp cloth and carefully dried. No polish is needed. Older pianos are usually French polished and need greater care, using a polish reviver applied with a clean soft cloth and polished with a soft duster. On NO account use spray polish.

The key tops may be made of ivory or various kinds of substitute material. Any marks which cannot be removed with a damp cloth should be left for the piano tuner to deal with. Do not use any kind of spirit or polish.

Protect your piano from ingress of dust, especially during decorating or building work Further details of the Piano Tuners Association
