There are approximately 200 strings in a piano, all different lengths and thicknesses. These slight changes of tension will affect each one differently. The most important factor for tuning stability is regular piano tuning. If your piano is tuned twice a year or more, the string tension will be a lot more stable throughout the year and it will go out of tune a lot less between tunings.
Over time, pianos will naturally develop some mechanical issues. These issues can generally be corrected but before any work can commence, the instrument must be assessed with various options then provided. Please don’t hesitate to contact me about such issues or leave a message in the Booking section.
