If your piano has not been tuned
for several years it may need to have the pitch raised back up to A440
which is the international standard. If so, the tuner will need
to tune the piano more than once until it is stable. The tuner
will charge you an extra twenty five percent for the extra
tunings. Your piano will also go out of tune again more quickly
and it will be necessary to have the piano tuned again between one and
three months from the time of the pitch raise.
Sometimes strings break while
tuning for no fault of the piano tuner. If this happens the tuner
will replace the broken string and charge you according to the price of
string replacement in the SCHROEDER'S STORE.
In the event that the piano is
not tunable the tuner will discount the tuning charges by twenty
percent and give you an estimate of the cost to put your piano into
good shape. The service call / estimate charge will be credited
to you for future in-shop repairs.
If you miss your appointment the
tuner will discount the bill to the price of a service call. You
will need to arrange to pay that amount before we come out again.
For distances over twenty miles
please add one percent of the cost of tuning to the invoice.
If you have questions don't
hesitate to call and discuss it with us.
We appreciate your business.
