What is the general cost of piano tuning?
Depends on the quality of the technician and the years of experience like with any field. I know of one tech that charges $180 + for the tuning alone.
Most technicians do not include pitch raises or repairs. Pitch raises take longer and have nothing to do with the actual tuning of the piano itself. The piano must be brought up or, lowered to, concert pitch before the actual tuning can take place.
Repairs also have nothing to do with tuning. An average tuning takes about 1 to 1. 5 hours for most tuners.
Here in Los Angeles, I charge between $75 and $125 depending on how bad the piano is and how long it's been since it was tuned last. Please tune your piano at least once a year. Manufactures recommend twice a year. MasterTuner.com
Sometimes yes, sometimes no.. Depends on the piano, its condition, previous care, if the prior tuner was any good, tuned it on pitch or intentionally tuned it flat. You'd be surprised at how many of them tune it flat. All pianos should be tuned at least once, per year. Tuning at least twice per year is recommended by all piano manufacturer's. If it's been many years since its last tuning and if it is old…
A regular piano tuning usually lasts 6 months to 1 year. I tune pianos here in Phoenix, AZ. - Perfect Piano Tuning, L.L.C. Addendum: If, on the other hand you meant: "How long will my piano stay in tune once tuned?" that is variable by the climate where you live, and how much the piano is played (which is actually good for it). A professional will want their piano tuned at least once every six…
imho, the question is who in the world would buy one at all? digital keyboards are now high quality (weighted hammer key action and sound) andmoderate priced- especially if used; whereas who would buy a 64 key piano -think moving and tuning costs -versus, if you want a real piano, getting a similarly sized spinetfree from pianoadoption when theright one pops up(and pay for moving/tuning alone). why go through the trouble of a labor-pricey beginner…
Through normal use. As time goes on, the strings stretch little by little, thereby becoming less taught ... when there is slack in the string tension, the pitch drops. Periodic piano tuning of at least once a year keeps your piano in tune ... and playable. The best thing for a piano is to be played - the more, the better.
