Questions and answers
- What questions should a customer ask before hiring a professional in your trade?
Of course ask about pricing. Don't pay more than you should. Compare prices. Ask about experience. It takes a minimum of ten years for a person to develope decent tuning skills. Also, a tuner may not necessarily be a technician. A technician is one who is experienced and skilled in piano repair. It's best to use an experienced tuner who is also a skilled technician. Not all tuner-techs are fully apprenticed by a Master Tuner Tech. Fully apprenticed veteran tuner techs are few & far between. They are by far your best choice. Mike M. Partain was fully apprenticed and road trained by C. Charles West, a German trained tuner-tech and the concert tuner for Jan Paderewski.
- What services do you provide your customers after the work has finished?
Depending on the extent of the repair/restoration, one free followup call will be scheduled several weeks after the repair is completed. This free service is provided just to make absolutely certain that everything is working as it should. After that, regular maintenance service is available and highly recommended. Regular maintenance includes periodic tuning.
- What information do you recommend to have readily available before looking for a professional in your trade?
What kind of piano? Vertical or grand and approximate age. Brand name is helpful. How long since it was last serviced. Where is the piano located and what is it being used for.
- What would you recommend customers looking to save money?
Contact me before you DO ANYTHING. If you are in need of any type of piano service, be advised that NOT ALL PIANO SERVICE PEOPLE ARE ALIKE. Again, don't pay more than you should.
- Tell us something customers may not know about you.
I'm also a musician and screenwriter. I've produced indie movies and thousands of hours of taped and LIVE television.
- What brands or products do you work with?
I service all brands of conventional acoustic pianos. I also service some that are not so conventional, such as older pianos by European manufacturers.
- What areas of your trade do you specialize in?
Complete Service to all piano owners. Home, Church, Institutional. Tuning-All Repairs-Total Restorations-Factory Grade Refinishing. Sometimes it just makes more sense to repair or rebuild the piano you already have rather than buy another one. I can help you make the right decision. My clients are pleasantly surprised when I tell them how little it cost to put their piano back in top shape. And assessments are free when I'm in your area.
- What are the most frequent questions you get from customers? What are the answers?
How much does it cost to have a piano tuned? Answer: A single tuning only, is usually only $75.00. If it should require more than one tuning or repairs beyond tuning only, those prices vary and will always be extremely reasonable. Example: A moderate pitch raise which is a two step process, is usually only $125...if no strings break!
- What do you wish customers knew about your profession or trade?
It would be great if clients did some research on piano service needs before they call a tuner tech. A bit of education on how environment affects a piano would be most helpful. How and why a piano goes out of tune is a most interesting topic.
