Piano Tuning – The tools You Need To Know

19 Dec 2022

When you buy piano in Dubai or from any other places, Piano Tuning is essential.  The piano needs to be tuned frequently if you want to keep your piano in peak shape. Compared to a piano that is only tuned in its later years, those that are frequently tuned in their early years are likely to stay in tune for more time. In the first year, new pianos need to be tuned four times, and depending on the weather and age, pianos should be tuned around twice a year. Because the strings on some extremely old and modern pianos are more sensitive to temperature changes, they should be adjusted more frequently. Here is a step-by-step explanation of how piano tuners tune their instruments.

Pianos often weigh between AED 25000 and AED 1,0000 or more, so we strongly suggest working with a reputable piano moving company with experience. A piano is frequently the most expensive and valuable item in a person’s home. A high-quality piano can cost anything from a few thousand dollars to over $100,000. Professional piano movers are especially important since a piano should treat with the utmost care, given its value. 

Why do I require piano tuning equipment?

You need an entire collection of piano tuning equipment if you want to speed up your tuning process while, most importantly, NOT breaking your piano. You can stop using the piano tuner if you have the necessary abilities and piano tuning equipment. If not, there is a chance that your piano will sustain significant damage. Tuning levers, tuning wrenches, electronic chromatic tuners, and rubber wedge mutes are the three main instruments used by piano tuners. Similar tools can be found at numerous music stores and online. The majority of the time, a piano tuning kit may be purchased that includes all of these items.

Piano Tuning Levers

The word “lever” is often used to describe other tuning devices, such as hammers and keys. Invest more money to buy a high-quality one because this is the most important item in your piano tuning toolkit. A tuning lever was created to suit piano pins, which are square but also tapered. Thanks to its star-shaped socket, different handle positions for control and comfort are possible.

The tips of tuning levers vary in size. While a smaller tip will grab the pin higher and tighter, a larger tip will grab the pin lower and feel looser. Pick a #2 if you’re unsure of what size to acquire. It is industry-standard and compatible with the majority of pianos.

Some European piano models use the smaller tip size #1. Although starting with a #2 is simpler, some skilled tuners prefer a #1 because it gives them more control. Tip #3 can be used to replace a damaged pin because it holds more of the pin. 

 

Electronic chromatic tuner

A simple gadget called an electronic tuning device (ETD) can be used to determine the note that a key is currently playing and how close it is to the desired sound. Professional tuners most frequently use electronic tuners; however more conventional tuners may prefer to use tuning forks because they are less sophisticated. Avoid using basic guitar tuners since they need to be more precise to tune a piano.

These tuners are economical in the long run. Even though it will cost more than the typical tuning fork, purchasing one of these will be a manageable investment. You may immediately tune your piano by purchasing an electric tuner and using it. Doing this may speed up the procedure and do it correctly.

To eliminate any dust accumulated during the piano move, use a soft, clean cloth or feather duster to wipe the piano. Dust can impair the movement of the hammers inside your piano, harm the finish, and produce noise. It would be great if you cleaned your piano’s exterior quickly. However, piano interior cleaning should trust a professional piano cleaning service. Your piano’s exterior can clean with a light soap after dusting. Avoid getting the material overly wet, as too much moisture might lead to water damage.

Finally, make a call to the experts. Now is a beautiful time to clean your piano’s interior if you still need to. Of course, it would be ideal if your piano was also tuned.

 

Mutes

Purchase a range of mutes. Get at least six or seven different sizes and varieties of mutes. Some may not fit on the upper, shorter strings of the treble side of the piano, while others may function well with lower strings.

To aid tune pianos, rubber wedge mutes are frequently using. If you want to be able to tune your piano precisely, these mutes are a need. You’ll need to damp some notes, and placing the wedge mute where it belongs will let you achieve so. This enables you to focus on those areas that need tuning to receive accurate readings.

These tuners are economical in the long run. Even though it will cost more than the typical tuning fork, purchasing one of these will be a manageable investment. You may immediately tune your piano by purchasing an electric tuner and using it. Doing this may speed up the procedure and ensure it is completed correctly.

Screwdriver

The strings and soundboard of some instruments, such as upright and grand pianos are shielded by a cabinet or door. Keep a screwdriver nearby if your piano has extra hardware of this nature so that you can quickly remove it and get to the strings. You need to understand that a piano tuner’s job is more complex than it may seem. When done effectively, mastering this art requires a lot of effort and experience, which makes it a time-consuming and expensive procedure.
