Rubber Mute

How can I tell a good piano tuner from a bad one?

What do good piano tuner's use? This lady says she just uses an A44 tuning fork to get the piano in tune. I have seen another tuner use a digital instrument. What is better? Of course, my husband is thinking he can tune the piano with the right instruments... Hubby LOVES any excuse to buy more tools.

Either/or.

Most professional tuners will use a tuning fork (A=440), then set the temperament by ear, then work their way across the instrument.

It's an acquired skill, you don't just "pick it up". If you husband insists on tuning his own piano, a $20 digital tuner won't do. He will need a "strobe" tuner. Peterson makes some of the best, most have been turned into "virtual strobe tuners."

The Peterson StroboFlip would be a good choice.

More important than the tuner will be a quality tuning hammer. I use a Hale hammer. Again, don't skimp on quality. Expect to pay $75 or more for a good hammer with a #2 star head. The grip MUST be comfortable in the hand, and the head must NOT slip on the tuning pins.

Next, a temperament felt ... it's a thick felt mute about three feet long. Add some rubber mutes. With a stick is often easier to use than plain rubber wedges.

A capstain wrench is very useful for pushing the temperament strip between the strings.

MOST important ... before anything else, get a copy of Arthur Reblitz' book "Piano Servicing, Tuning, and Rebuilding, Second Edition: For the Professional, the Student, and the Hobbyist "

... makes a great Christmas present! (no, I'm not him, and he doesn't know me from Adam.)
