From a Spinet to a 9' Concert Grand we strive to get every piano to perform to it's utmost ability. We hope you will allow us to provide affordable, quality service to your piano.

How Often To Get A Tuning In Maine?
The frequency of tuning is highly dependent on both the instrument, the player, and the environment the piano is kept in. While some will suggest having an instrument tuned two or three times, maybe even four times, a year - we find that on average a piano that is kept in a reasonable environment can be satisfactory when tuned once or twice a year (usually May and October). Many times have we recommended that a piano need not be tuned more than once a year, but this is based on that particular piano, the player's needs, and the environment the piano is kept in. Of course a piano player who is more demanding of their instrument will want more frequent tunings.
Another thing to keep in mind when deciding how often to have your instrument tuned is that unless the instrument is in storage, no piano - no matter quality - can be expected to keep it's tune for more than a year. Having a piano tuned less than once a year may seem to save money initially but this is usually made up for by the fact that a piano that has fallen badly out of tune will usually require what is called a Pitch Raise before being Tuned. In fact an instrument neglected for two or more years could require more than one pitch raise before it will hold a tuning. A pitch raise stabilizes the piano for the tuning, if the piano was tuned without a pitch raise it would very soon (sometimes even before the tuner leaves) be back out of tune. A pitch raise is usually half the cost of a normal fine tuning.
So the advantages of having a piano tuned at least once a year can actually save the owner money.
In closing it should be noted that institutional pianos (those in schools, churches, and other non-private locations) usually will need at least two tunings a year as these get heavy use and are usually subject to large swings in temperature and humidity.
Parks & Sons provides Maine piano tuning, Maine piano repair, Maine piano regulation, Maine piano reconditioning, Maine piano rebuilding, Maine piano moving, Maine piano refinishing, and more - all at reasonable and affordable fees.
