Piano tuning issues on older pianos, Piano Tuning Atlanta – by Charity 770-876-7340 call or text

As pianos age, the pin block (the wooden block that holds the tuning pins tight), can form cracks causing it to lose grip on the tuning pins.  Even when the piano tuner sets the pins exactly in tune, on a piano like this, the tuning pins can slip, causing the piano strings to go out of tune, especially when the piano is played hard.  Generally speaking, pianos manufactured before the 1940’s (in our experience) have had a higher occurance of  this problem.  One way we can sometimes deal with this problem (a compromise) is to tune the piano to its average current pitch, rather than force the tension of the piano strings upward  to the A440 standard pitch.  The better scenerio is often to consider trading up to a more stable piano.
