Each piano tuning from BC Pianocraft includes a full inspection of your piano and its playing capabilities. We use a combination of computer tuning programs and our own ear to ensure both accurate tunings and a warm smooth tone. A piano tuning can take from 2-3 hours because we need to make several passes of all the strings to ensure a quality tuning. We will also vacuum all the dust from your piano and do any spot repairs on it.
If, through our examination of your piano, we discover areas that need to be repaired, we will discuss all aspects of the repair job with you. A general description of available repair work and prices is given in the repairs section.
Various levels of piano tuning are available:
This piano tuning fulfills the needs of the pianist who loves music as a hobby.
This tuning is a step-up and meets standards for teaching and learning to play the piano, regulating the piano so that learning becomes more enjoyable for the student, allowing the student to focus on the musical aspects of the piano.
The Performance level tuning is what we do for all concert halls and concert grande pianos. It brings out the singing quality of the piano and focuses on its strengths as an instrument.
