Everything You Always Wanted to Know...

Where should I keep my “Happy Piano Tuner” magnet?

Refrigerators are like opinions...everybody has one, so the refrigerator is my suggestion. Don’t feel bad if you have a Subzero brand (not magnetic) I’ve had numerous reports of good results with Crazyglue.

How should I care for my magnet?

I suggest wiping it down with a damp cloth every 6-8 days (front only). At some point the ink will disappear... call me and I will send you another. They don’t cost as much as you would think. They like temperatures between 55° and 80° F.

Can I get more magnets for my friends?

That depends on how many friends you have. I will supply four magnets per customer per 6 week period...answer...yes.

How should I clean my keys?

I recommend glass cleaner. Spray rag and wipe the keys.

How often should I tune my piano?

I recommend twice a year. Problem pianos and heavily played pianos should be tuned more frequently.

Where can my friend buy a good used piano?

Every week I have a customer who says “just got a great piano off Craig’s List/Ebay…" At least, use these places for research.

Explore used piano stores to familiarize yourself with brand names and prices. Once you find a piano you should always have a technician check it out

My piano has not been tuned for seven years, will one tuning bring it back to pitch?

Generally not. The first tuning will put the octaves back in line and improve it greatly, but this tuning will settle and need one or two more tunings to stabilize the pitch. (In seven years the piano has missed approximately fourteen tunings.)
