When a piano has not been tuned regularly, it may require two tunings. I offer a DOUBLE TUNING which means two tunings on the same visit to get it up to standard pitch—basically, a pitch raise and a tuning. I do this in recording studios, where the piano is flat and needs to be perfect. For and extra $35, I’m running over your piano one more time.
These rates are based on frequency. Please contact me to discuss prices. Group Rates: Discounts for more than one tuning at the same location.
Dampers, strings, hammers and all action repairs, pedals, re-finishing, new key tops. Pricing will vary with the make and style of piano. Call for estimate.
Certificate good for “One Hour with the Happy Piano Tuner” Birthdays, Hanukkah, Christmas, Julliard Acceptance, etc. Call for more info.
