Old Piano? Pianos made before about 1950 can be good to look at, but very difficult to tune and impossible to keep in tune. Often they will go out of tune during the tuning process, or the next day, or within a few days. Pianos built before 1950 might be “Untunable”.
If your piano is Untunable then Arthur will charge a £20 fee to cover his expenses.
Old pianos which go out of tune within a few days or weeks are a problem to all piano tuners. Such pianos are tuned to the highest level possible at the time of tuning but cannot be guaranteed to hold their pitch and will need re-tuning every few months.
Piano not been tuned for more than 2 years? Pianos should be tuned every 6 months to maintain them in optimum health. Also, when regularly used, a piano which is out of tune will spoil the player’s sense of pitch. If your piano has not been tuned for more than 2 years then it will need two tunings, a few weeks apart, to bring it up to pitch.
Why always at 1pm? Because that’s when Arthur’s dad is available to drive him there. If this is not a suitable time for you, please email, alternative times can be arranged.
Tuning Fee – £50
Untunable piano fee – £20
