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.

Buying a piano?  Don’t get stuck with a lemon!  Have an expert on your side, and get advice you can trust.  A thorough examination is performed for $50, and every detail is documented and shared with you.
