Piano Tuning Tips
A piano is very difficult to tune since it has more than 250 strings that are held under extremely high tension.
In-harmonicity requires a piano tuning to be stretched or tempered. For this reason all piano notes are not tuned to their theoretical mathematical frequencies.
The tuning pins that they wrap around are set very tightly in a strong wooden block.
Muting wedges and muting felt are also needed to dampen surrounding strings.
All pianos exhibit what is called in-harmonicity, which varies with each particular piano.
Piano tuning and servicing is a very complicated process that takes a lot of training and skill to do it right.
You must have a special wrench (called a tuning hammer) to turn them up or down.
Don't tune your own, wait for a pro to help.
There is a big difference in feel when you are tuning, between turning the pin and twisting it. It takes a lot of time to develop this "feel". If you merely twist the pin, it won't stay in tune. When you turn the pin you can feel a break in the friction through the tuning hammer. This is perhaps the one hardest skill to develop. It is best while you are puling the string to a higher frequency to hit the key hard driving out any loose tension this will make your tuning last longer as it will simulate actual playing of the piano.
A piano is a fine and delicate instrument that should be tuned about twice a year. There is more to tuning than just following these instructions. It would be advisable to seek the services of a professional piano tuner to make sure that the tone is of good quality and sound.
If a string is tuned too sharp, it will snap. Replacing strings is tricky and costly, so tune with caution.
Tuning a piano is a very specialised and delicate task - that is why it is better to call in a professional piano tuner.
