Just for the record, I haven't retired! I won't be hanging up my tuning lever just yet and have no plans to fully retire any time soon. My concession to reaching a certain age has been to cut my working week to three days so keep the requests for tuning coming in. I do get booked up though so please allow a couple of weeks notice. ... See MoreSee Less

An idea that never caught on! A gramophone in your piano stool complete with autochanger. The speakers and radio are in the electric Eavestaff Minipiano. Played by Princesses Elizabeth and Margaret c. 1939. Only nine were made. #piano #pianotuner #pianotechnician #eavestaff #minipiano #electricpiano #hmthequeen #princesselisabeth #princessmargaret #1939 #gramaphone #pianostool @ Cambridge, Cambridgeshire ...

Mystery dust! It’s through the whole wrestplank but no loose pins. Could be woodworm but no trace anywhere else. Could be the wrestpin bushings that have crumbled but why? #piano #pianotuner #pianotuning #pianotechnician #wrestpins #wrestplank #pinblock #tuningpins #woodworm #dust ... See MoreSee Less
It looks like someone tried to cover up this cracked frame. Fortunately it doesn’t have much effect on this particular piano. Unfortunately this piano is on its last legs due to neglect, age, and rust. #piano #pianotuner #pianoframe #castiron #crackedframe #oldpiano #rustystrings #neglect ... See MoreSee Less

A really useful piano accessory: bookholders for the modern piano which rarely comes with such an essential thing. I thought at first it was made by K. Kawai but no, piano manufacturers still haven’t got the point. This pair is made by Katz Klip, available on Amazon for just under £30. #piano #pianotuner #bookholder #katzklip #pianomanufacturer @ Pampisford ... See MoreSee Less
Maybe we could call it Piano Weekend?HAPPY PIANODAY 2019 🎹! “Why does the world need a Piano Day? For many reasons. But mostly, because it doesn’t hurt to celebrate the piano and everything around it: performers, composers, piano builders, tuners, movers and most important, the listener.” – Nils Frahm ...

Interesting variation of the ‘tropicalised’ piano. Designed to stop excesses of humidity affecting vulnerable piano parts. This Blüthner has protection of the casework over the the more usual keys. #piano #pianotuner #pianotuning #tropical #humidity #blüthner #bluthner #casework #tropicalisation ... See MoreSee Less
When I see other instruments about I always bring up the subject of pitch. It’s surprising how many violin users express their ignorance about this and how it’s their teacher who tunes the violin for them. Surely lesson no.1 is how to tune your instrument? #piano #pianotuner #pitch #tuning #violin #violinteacher #learntotune ... See MoreSee Less
