Piano Tuning Prices

The base price for tuning is $105 - largely based on travel distance and the last time the piano was tuned.

Fernandina, Yulee, Amelia Island is $105 as well however there is usually a week or so wait for scheduling.

Mandarin, Julington Creek, Switzerland, Northside, Westside, Arlington, Orange Park, Ponte Vedra, Northern St Augustine and the Beaches are 105.

I also travel to outlying areas such as Palatka, Callahan, Middleburg, St Augustine Beach, central and southern St Augustine pricing starting at 125.00

Pitch Raise

Here's a very good video explanation on the problems we face when tuning pianos that haven't been tuned regularly.
Pianos that haven't been tuned in over 5 years almost always need a pitch raise and extra work. A pitch raise basically means tuning the piano twice. A pitch raise is $185.00 . This includes minor repairs and tuning the piano twice.
The work is in the raising of the pitch. If your piano tuner isn't raising the pitch, he isn't doing the work,  I see pianos all the time that clearly the piano tuner isn't raising the pitch. You can check and make sure he's tuning your piano to pitch with a piano tuning or guitar tuning app.

Repairs

I do repairs major and minor. From fixing a note that doesn't work correctly to rebuilding.
Restringing a grand piano $1,750.00
Voicing and Regulation $350 - $550
Basic repairs are based on an hourly rate of $55 an hour.
I don't charge for minor repairs

Rebuilding a grand piano consists of: new strings, new tuning pins, a new pin block (If it needs to be replaced) new hammers, new hammer shanks (includes new knuckles), new damper felts, new key bushings, new key tops, replacement of all the felts on the harp and a complete cleaning. Basically ... replacing all moving parts. Call for an estimate. Every piano is different. A 7-foot Steinway is going to be more expensive to rebuild than a 5-foot-1 Young Chang.

Testimonials

Chris Doerr

I just wanted to say a big thanks.  Our piano hasn't sounded this good since we bought it.  And also thanks for fixing the squeak in the pedal!  I had forgotten to mention that to you so really pleased that you fixed it.  We'll definitely be calling you in the future. Thanks again. Chris

Jason has been tuning my pianos for several years now. He always does an excellent job, not only tuning, but also performing maintenance! Quite a nice guy, as well.
