Tuning Frequency

The importance of regular piano tuning
Regular piano tunings should be performed to maintain a piano’s condition, which affects both its overall playing condition and its resale value.

Pianos are complex instruments; if one part is performing incorrectly it may be damaging other parts of the piano. Regular piano tuning can prevent any such damage as the piano tuner will fix a problem before it propagates. Also, some issues are undetectable to the casual piano player so having a qualified professional regularly evaluate a piano can prevent small problems from turning into large ones. Since not all piano tuners are also piano technicians it is important to use a piano tuner who has been properly trained in piano maintenance.

Regular piano tuning helps build string “strength.” After several regular tunings the pitch will not stray as quickly.  Pianos should ideally be tuned 2-3 times per year, especially in the North-East and Mid-West, namely, once per season, as temperature and humidity changes with each season, and these climate changes cause pianos (which are made of wood) to go out of tune.

If a piano has not been tuned for several years it may require additional tuning work, such as Pitch-Raising, a pre-tuning process that prepares the strings to be tuned. Or Double-Tuning, when a quicker ‘chip’ tuning is performed before the second ‘fine’ tuning several days later. A double tuning is done because the tuning process itself can cause weak strings to quickly go out-of-tune.
