We all want to know what something will cost before we commit to having it done. In many ways, having a piano tuned is similar to having an automobile serviced. Pricing is dependent on how much work needs to be done, other than tuning, and this will need to be determined when the tuning is done.
Our Tuning ServiceFor pianos that are tuned on a regular basis, and for pianos that have not been tuned for a decade or so, the charge is $160.00. This includes a double tuning, that is tuning all 200 plus strings in the piano two times completely through. If the pitch is extreemly off, as a piano that has not been tuned for over a decade, we will go through a quick third time through, at no extra charge. We also throw in some adjusting of the voicing and regulation of the action to keep the piano sounding and playing great, unless we need to do a third time through the tuning.
Is it worth tuning my piano or can it be repaired?If a piano is severly out of tune, has been damaged or neglected for a long period of time, it may require additional repair work or a complete rebuilding. T&S Piano does complete repair and rebuilding and can access the specific needs. The price for a complete on site evaluation is $70 which can be applied to the cost of the repair or rebuilding work.
What is the difference between repairing and rebuilding?Repairing a piano usually involves replacing some broken or worn out parts on the keys or other part of the piano. This work can include cleaning the interior, action repair and regulation, voicing and tuning. Most of the time, if the repairs are not too extensive, they can be done on site where the piano is located.
Rebuilding involves the complete reconditioning or refurbishment of the piano and restores it to the original condition. Since this work requires large tools and equipment, and will be done over a few days, it is done at the T&S Piano rebuilding shop. Along with the acoustical work T&S can also have the wood refinished to look like new.
