prompt service and competitive pricing
What customers say:
I’d had my eye on a 1911 Steinway B, neglected and languishing for years. Tim quickly assessed its potential, and on installation at my studio he spent a day coaxing it back to life. Now, ten years on, it still gives sterling service, only needing tuning twice a year!

Piano Tuning and on-site Piano Repairs
Piano tuning is the act of making minute adjustments to the tensions of the strings of a piano to properly align the intervals between their tones so that the instrument is in tune ... Fine piano tuning requires an assessment of the interaction among notes, which is different for every piano, thus in practice requiring slightly different pitches from any theoretical standard [ Wikipedia ].
Drawing on years of experience, Tim Hendy will tune your piano to the correct intervals, while also responding to the subtleties of your piano's intonation. During tuning visits he is often able to assess potential problems and to effect repairs on site which might normally be considered workshop jobs. Minor repairs which can often be performed on-site include:
- Sticking keys
- Pedal repairs
- String replacement
