Piano Tuning

Piano Tuning needs to be carried out regularly.  At Maloney Pianos, we realise for a piano to sound its best pianos it needs to be tuned regularly so that it sounds its best and you can get the most from your instrument.

Three Factors Which Require a Piano to be Tuned:

1. Heat & Humidity.  Extremes in heat and humidity can be devastating to the tuning of your piano, degrading even the most professional and sturdiest of pianos.

2. Force.  Playing your piano with a harsh force pressed onto the notes can damage your piano and cause it to go out of tune, as the hammers strike the strings with a force that wears them down.

3. String Tensions.  The last factor that causes pianos to become detuned is the natural tension of the strings, with each string under around 160 pounds of tension. Over time, this can start to cause faults in your instrument and can alter the tone and tuning of your piano.

So remember – in order to keep your piano well-tuned, do not keep your piano next to a radiator or log burner, introduce heat slowly into a cold room, and don’t play your piano too violently.
