Piano Tuning – $110
Connecticut – $110 total per full tuning.
This price includes a full piano tuning, travel, and sales tax.
There are no additional charges unless your piano needs repair.
A442 Tuning – If you are a concert pianist and wish to have your piano tuned to A442 instead of A440, just let your technician know.
If you wish to branch out from equal temperament, we can also tune in a selection of historical temperaments at no extra charge. They provide differing tonal qualities to chords, and can be more expressive than equal temperament. We can tune your piano in any one of seven historical “well” temperaments from Bach’s time.
Piano Evaluation/Appraisal/Find – $50
Buying a piano? Don’t get stuck with a lemon! Have an expert on your side, and get advice you can trust. Watch out for sharks selling totally beat old school pianos. A thorough examination is performed for $50, and every detail is documented and shared with you.
Find out the true value of your piano. Is it worth selling? Is it worth keeping? We charge $50 to evaluate a piano. There is no extra charge for minor repairs. We answer all of your questions. We provide a signed document attesting to the value and condition of your piano if you decide to sell it. Use this for a tax deduction if you donate your piano to a charity. Your piano may be a hidden gem or a valuable antique. Let us prove to you that we are the go-to piano people by providing an in-depth analysis of your piano and our professional opinion of your best options. Get expert recommendations and guidance.
The starting point for determing the value of a piano is the original price paid. If the piano has not been maintained, the value will be less than the original price. How far the pitch has dropped and needed repairs will determine the amount.
If the piano has been maintained with regular tunings and is at A-440 concert pitch, the value will be more than the original price. This price is often determined by the market. That is, what is someone willing to pay for it?
String Replacement/Piano Repair
String replacement within New Haven County typically costs around $50. Wound strings will cost up to $20 extra for a matched replacement from Mapes Piano String Co, Elizabethton, Tennessee.
Repair and piano string replacement prices are at the technician’s discretion, approximately $100 per hour. We always try to charge a reasonable price for repairs. The action in your piano may need to be removed and brought to the repair shop. Please include phone number, location, and the condition of the piano with your request for a quote.
Quick-fix Tuning – $25
Do you have one or two critical notes that are out of tune in an otherwise in-tune piano? We will adjust up to five notes that have gone out of tune for $25.
Distance and the number of stairs will determine the price of moving a piano. The mover we recommend specializes in pianos, and is bonded and insured. Please contact us with information about what you need.
