The maintenance of a piano, from tuning to adjusting
Maintaining a piano consists of several tasks. René Sauriol sees to the tuning, repair, estimation and adjustment of the stringed instrument.
The tuning of a piano consists of adjusting the tension of the strings. The instrument should be tuned at least once a year, but ideally twice a year. The frequency is higher, depending on the use of the instrument. The change in humidity affects the frequency at which a piano should be tuned. Why does this affect the tuning time of a piano? Fluctuating humidity in a room causes strings to move.
René Sauriol offers a professional service and the constant monitoring of a piano. He establishes, with the client, the right timing for the tuning of the instrument. Mr. Sauriol will notify the pianist of any anomaly. When tuning a piano, René Sauriol verifies the fineness of the instrument’s mechanism in order to avoid bad wear and tear on parts.
