About Robby's Piano Tuning and Restoration
My name is Robby Draper and Robby's Piano Tuning and Restoration is my business.
I tune and repair pianos in the Jackson County area and some Tennessee.
Contact me to get estimates. I can basically fix anything to a piano. I don't charge a fortune, so don't be scared to contact me today.
I usually tune an upright around $65 plus a traveling fee, depending on your location. Grand Pianos are around $100 with a traveling fee depending on your location.
Such as if I drive 20 miles to your house to tune an upright for $65 and I charge 75 cents per mile traveling fee, it will be a total of ($65 + $15), which is a total of $80 check or cash.
Thanks and God Bless,
Questions and answers
- What brands or products do you work with?
Well, I use a star piano tuner with a couple of tools I use off of my base website. And I use an electric keyboard to tune the piano to the right pitch.
- What information do you recommend to have readily available before looking for a professional in your trade?
Before you call me, have the piano's brand, serial number, problem, information about your last tuner, and your exact location because I use Google Maps to find your location.
- What services do you provide your customers after the work has finished?
I make sure the problem is fixed and the customer is completely satisfied before I get the money in my hand. It's my job to cure the piano and put a smile on your face and the sound of the piano to tickle your ears. :)
- What areas of your trade do you specialize in?
I can repair anything in a piano, and I travel no longer than 35 miles. People think that if one thing is wrong with a piano that it is impossible to fix. It's not. I can fix it!
- What questions should a customer ask before hiring a professional in your trade?
What prices do you charge?
How far do you travel?
Please specify about your piano where I can bring the right tools to fix it.
- What types of jobs are the most common?
Mainly tuning is the #1 thing with pianos. Sometimes it's a broken string or a key that's sticking. Very seldom it is a sound board crack or rattling or a loose tuning pin.
- Tell us about the project or job that you are most proud of (in the last 12 months).
Two months ago I bought a piano for $150, and I restored it, and now it is worth over $500. I like smiles on my clients' faces!
- How did you get started?
I began to experiment with my piano while I was restoring it, and I realized how simple a piano is built.
- Tell us something customers may not know about you.
That I am a Baptist preacher and I love to spread the Gospel. So if I come to your house to fix a piano, you might hear a little bit about Jesus too! :)
- What would you recommend customers looking to save money?
To call your local piano tuners and find the kindest and lowest charge of your specification in the piano.
- What are the most frequent questions you get from customers? What are the answers?
Q: My piano is an upright. How much will you charge to tune my piano?
A: It is around $65 plus a traveling fee of 75 cents a mile. I travel to your house.
Q: My piano is a grand, how much do you charge?

Q: I have a broken string, how much do you charge to replace it?
A: It will be from a range of $45 - $75 depending on the type of string and a 75 cent a mile traveling fee.
- How many projects do you average in a year?
Depends on the season and weather. Around 1 a week, 4 a month, so it's around 50 or more a year. That's not including pianos I buy, restore and sell.
- What do you wish customers knew about your profession or trade?
That I don't do it for the money, I do it for my Lord Jesus Christ and other people's satisfaction. And plus, I love pianos!
