This is one of my real favorites, an Estonia piano, around 6 foot. It has exquisite tonal quality, and the action is very smooth and reliable. This piano, for it's size, actually sounds like a much larger piano. ... See MoreSee Less

This is an example of one of the real workhorses of the piano industry, the Baldwin Hamilton. They were built tough, and have lasted for decades. The Hamiltons used rock hard hammers, and even though they sound good, they can sound wonderful with some hammer filing and voicing. This piano sounded strident until I filed the string grooves and shaped hammers. It could still use some needle voicing, but even as it is, it is a good example of how these instruments can sound. ... See MoreSee Less

This is an example of a tuning on a Yamaha gh1. I usually make a recording of the piano after tuning using my phone. This gives me a chance to do a final evaluation on the work, and to find if there are any voicing concerns. I will be posting a few of these examples using different brands and types of instruments so you can hear a piano after a fresh tuning.
Hopefully the sound quality will be close to real, as I stated before, this is recorded with my Note 4 phone, and not with good recording equipment.

The best way to control humidity is by having a DamppChaser system installed on your piano that works constantly to keep the soundboard around 45% humidity. It also keeps keys and hammers from becoming sluggish. I will be glad to give you information on these great systems. Oklahoma is a terrible state for changing climate conditions. Without climate control, your piano is always struggling to stay healthy.
A humidistat that monitors room RH should be on the piano. Keeping the air circulating with your AC/Heat systems also keeps extra humidity at bay. As nice as open windows may feel to you, that is very hard on your instrument. I have seen tunings wrecked quickly by opening the house up with open doors and windows. A room at 45-50% humidity is stable. Opening the windows after a rain changes the room to 80-90%, and the soundboard will swell and cause the strings to go sharp. When the room goes back to 45-50%, the piano will return, but not without some of the individual notes, or unisons, starting to wobble. Do that often, and it will be time to call the tuner again.

School is now in full swing, and piano teachers will begin fall lessons. Now is a great time to call and schedule an appointment for your piano. Pianos should be tuned no less than 1 time per year, but many people like to have their pianos done at least twice per year. Big humidity changes make your piano go flat in dry humidity, and sharp in humid conditions. Humidity is also the culprit that causes notes to play sluggishly and notes to stick and not return. The perfect humidity for your piano is 43-45 %. The longer period of time you can keep your room constant to when it is tuned, the longer you can enjoy a beautiful, singing tone and pure unisons. ...

I hope you find this site to be useful and educational. I will be giving you information to enjoy and care for your piano, and will be posting sound examples of different brands of pianos so that you can hear the difference from one piano brand to the next. This will also give you the opportunity to hear my work before scheduling an appointment.

You will find posts that describe how and why pianos go out of tune, and how the sound of your piano changes with time, and how technicians can restore and improve your piano's tone and playability.
