The price varies depending on the travel distance and condition of the piano. Pianos that have not been tuned for several years may require a pitch adjustment which is more than one tuning per visit.
Regular tuning takes about one to two hours. Please allow an extra half hour for the first appointment due to the assessment and a light cleaning.
