Cost Of Tuning A Piano – Is It Worth Doing It Yourself?
Cost of tuning a piano; this has to be weighed up against the potential damage, not to mention awful noise that can occur if you try to do the tuning yourself or consider a cheaper option. Read on to find out whether the cost of a professional is worth it.
Piano maintenance is important to the longevity and good sound of your piano. Part of this maintenance is piano tuning. However, with the average piano needing tuning at least twice a year, the cost can soon mount up. For this reason, many people consider attempting to tune their piano themselves. The main problem with this is that it is not as cheap or as easy as most people think it will be. Firstly, you need to have all the right tools, and secondly, you need to have a lot of time to spare. In terms of time, consider that an expert with years of experience is likely to take around two hours to tune a piano. Then you need to consider your skills. Just because you can play a piano or choose the right one from all the pianos for sale, does not mean you will be able to tune one. Just getting the vibration even slightly wrong will leave the piano out of tune. And, this is not even the worst that could happen. Things go wrong, even for professionals, so think how much more likely you are to end up breaking a string or getting a tool stuck. Then ask yourself if a professional is worth the cost.
