pitch raising

what is pitch raising?

The Los Angeles Piano Tuner offers pitch raising as a service for when pianos have not been tuned for a long period of time. Thus the piano becomes extremely out of tune. Another cause for this significant and adverse change in a piano’s tuning is strong changes in humidity and temperature. Additionally, the piano may have been just moved and all the jostling in-transit can cause the piano to get very out-of-tune.  To get a piano in tuned in these situations requires pitch raising. Pitch raising is the practice of greatly adding tension to the strings to get it back in tune. The Los Angeles Piano Tuner can provide this service as well as regular piano tuning and sticky key repairs.

Piano tuners in Los Angeles will typically charge around $200-$250. 

I charge $220 around the median rate of what another Los Angeles piano tuner would charge.
