To a piano technician "tuning" means a very specific operation in which the tension of each string is adjusted to a particular pitch. I have been tuning pianos since 1974. For the first 7 years of my career, I tuned solely by ear using a tuning fork to set the first string. In 1981 I incorporated state-of-the art electronics as an adjunct to my ears. I feel that the combination of well-trained ears and sophisticated electronics results in the best tuning possible. Piano tunings in the Rochester area are $115.00 plus sales tax if required. This fee includes any minor adjustments to the pitch and action. Additional fees for other work outside the realm of a normal service fee will be discussed and approved before being done.
