Hiring a high quality piano tuner makes your piano better
Piano tuning demands an expert with experience!
Professional piano tuning is a unique and specific professional art form performed on a piano. Tuning involves adjusting strings, tension, and making all of the right piano adjustments to get the optimal results. Concert tuning and piano tuning are two unique areas of the art. One involves significant investments in skills and abilities.
Quality piano tuning involves pulling or adjusting the strings on the piano. A piano has about 200 strings . The strings hold a lot of tension on them, quite a bit. Piano strings when tightened push down on the pianos bridge and soundboard to a degree. Strings have upwards of 150 pounds of tension on each of them.
Piano wire moves like a rubber band
Your piano needs equilibrium.
When your piano is drifting out of tune, it is due to movement. Hundreds of strings with hundreds of pounds of tension is a lot of weight. Piano strings are like super-strong rubber bands. They get stretched when you tune the piano. These strings like to pull back too. Equilibrium is the goal. Strings on the piano get tuned to A440 – an international standard established to give a reference across the globe.
Piano Tuning should be done every 6 months.
Strings should be tuned.
A piano tuning involves adjusting the pitch of your piano to A440, and all the other strings should be optimized and appropriately adjusted. Tuning adds the right amount of tension to the piano strings — other parts in the piano benefit from proper adjustment by Fifth Octave, LLC. Keeping everything equal, correct, and consistent is amazingly essential. The Fifth Octave can inspect your piano. Waiting too long between tunings can cause dramatic changes and damage to the instrument. I recommend tuning intervals of no more than six months in Wisconsin. Regularly tuning your piano ensures that we can optimize tuning within the climate we have here.
