Piano Servicing Doesn't Have to Be Expensive
Piano servicing and tuning can "sometimes" involve significant cost, especially if the instrument needs major repairs or restoration work, but it doesn't always have to. Many times we have repaired pianos that have appeared beyond repair, and saved a forgotten instrument that the owner felt was long gone.
Some repairs, such as complete restringing, new hammers, or refinishing, do add up, but many times an aging piano that doesn't quite work properly can be made to play adequately for under $200, and sometimes only for a little more than the price of a tuning.
Provided we can coordinate scheduling, our standing tuning fee is just $75 and miscellaneous repairs are based on a rate of $40/hr. If the piano is severely flat, we will raise the pitch as far as possible to attain a stable tuning. Appointments involving a tight deadline or long distances may involve an additional fee, and some services -- such as regulation or voicing -- involve a set fee.
Please feel free to call or send an email if you have any questions at all about tuning or repair of your piano. If you live within 60 miles of Edwardsville, Illinois, you are within our general service area.
