My fee for a fine tuning service is $130. This also includes any cleaning and minor adjustments that I can perform in under 30 minutes total.
Pitch adjustments (pitch raises, or in rare cases, lowerings) are an additional $65. Pianos that haven’t been tuned in the last year or so will usually need a pitch raise.
(Pitch adjustments are needed when the overall pitch of the piano is 5 cents or more off of where it should be. These larger changes in string tension will result in some initial settling, so I have to tune the piano in two passes — that’s what the extra charge is for. Sometimes I can skip the cleaning and adjustments and do a pitch adjustment without an additional fee, but only when the piano is still pretty close to that 5 cent range.)
If the visit is to an area that’s more than a 45-minute drive from my home location, there is an additional fee ($25 and up) to help cover gas and travel time. We’ll let you know before booking the appointment.
Other services (Repair, Regulation, Voicing, etc.) are priced on a case-by-case basis.
