Jon's Piano Care Tip
When buying a used piano be sure to check the condition of the soundboard and rib connections. Be sure that there are no major cracks in the soundboard, and that the ribs (the diagonal strips of wood that run across the soundboard) have a snug fit to the soundboard. There should be no spaces between ribs and soundboard. Spaces may be a cause of annoying vibrations.

Piano Tuning Most pianos should be tuned at least 2-3 times a year, depending on:

It is advisable to keep pianos tuned at A440 for several reasons; tone quality, ear training, and it's standard tuning.

Regulating This assures that the piano action will maintain it's integrity, factory adjusted feel, and the tone will remain as intended (mellow or bright voicing). It also assures hammer felt longevity. An average residential piano should be regulated as least once every 10-20 years. Concert pianos are regulated more often, as needed.

Repairs Sticking and/or broken keys, sluggish hammers, broken hammers, broken strings, broken action parts, etc.

Seasonal Maintenance Pianos can be adversely affected by seasonal changes. Seasonal maintenance is recommended to correct any problems that may have occurred due to seasonal changes:

Seasonal maintenance is done at owners request and as needed.

Appraisals The piano is inspected and appraised for several reasons; fair market value, insurance purposes, personal knowledge about the piano, resale value, etc.

A well tuned piano is key to beautiful music. Pianos, like people, need TLC.
