"He was great. Punctual, professional and personable. His price was fair, considering the problems that I had with my piano. I would definitely recommend him to others and I will use him again the future. I'm so glad that I found him through Angie's List!

"I bought one of the Angie's List special deals to have our old piano cleaned and tuned. We bought a used upright on Craigs List 4 years ago. It's about 40 years old, and, by the looks of its insides, it had never been cleaned! The gentleman from
Raleigh Piano Tuners Provider Name Locked
arrived on time, explained very clearly everything that he was going to do, and then showed us things as we proceeded which we needed to know. He showed us the inch of dust (no exaggeration!) inside the panel, as well as a couple of things that were in need of repair. He was very very thorough and treated our piano like it was his. He really has a passion for this stuff, and it showed. They finished when they promised, and really went above and beyond to please us. We did incur additional cost beyond the cleaning, but nothing he didn't prepare us for. The piano sounds a LOT better than it ever has!

"After inheriting this piano I checked Angie's list for a piano tuner and found a $99 Deal for
Raleigh Piano Tuners Provider Name Locked
. After purchasing the deal, I heard back the following day from
Raleigh Piano Tuners Provider Name Locked
' scheduler offering several days and times. I wrote back and chose a day in the following week. I did not receive any word back, but assumed that the appointment was set. When the tuner did not arrive on the day I selected I called and learned that the Angie's List Deal had overwhelmed them for a few days and the scheduler had lost track of my reply. She quickly got me on the schedule for the following week. I rated them with a B for responsiveness as a result of the scheduling mishap, but I have to cut them some slack due to the Angie's List Deal.
The Scheduler also gave me some material that would help set my expectations for the additional consts I might incur after the tecnician looked at my piano. Their web site materials are quite good and very helpful in understanding the types of problems a piano might have and the costs for fixing these problems.
The tuner,
Raleigh Piano Tuners Provider Name Locked
, arrived on time and came well-prepared for the job. He was very professional and personable, answering all of my questions thoroughly and earnestly. He inspected the piano and determined that I would need an intermediate tuning because it had been so long since the last tuning and the piano had been moved. He let me know before he got started (and I expected this would be the case) that my piano needed more than a basic tuning. I was aware of the price range for intermediate tuning thanks to the materials the scheduler gave me. He calculated my additional cost and made sure I agreed.
He cleaned the inside of the piano, which was extremely dirty, then began tuning. It took him about 90 minutes to tune it as he had to run through it twice. He explained to me that as you tune each string, the entire level of tuning changes as you proceed, so often, the tuning may need to be repeated multiple times to get it right. He removed the old dampchaser and advised not to use this because it would cause more problems than it solved in our NC climate.
He made some minor adjustments to the action for keys that were problematic. He also found several things in need of more advanced repair or improvement when I was ready. I plan to have
Raleigh Piano Tuners Provider Name Locked
come back in March to complete this work and tune it again.
At the end of the tuning,
Raleigh Piano Tuners Provider Name Locked
treated me to a mini-concert--he plays beautifully! His enthusiasm for music and his knowledge of piano mechanics make him an excellent piano technician. I highly recommend
Raleigh Piano Tuners Provider Name Locked
and

for piano maintenance and repair.

"Our piano is a 41 year old Yamaha studio upright that had not been tuned for about 25 years. Our now 40-something children were the piano players, so it has only been played on an occasion when someone visits. When the tuner arrived he played a little and told us that our piano was VERY out of tune, so the special price would not be enough to get it back in tune and
estimated what the extra time would be and therefore the extra price.
Raleigh Piano Tuners Provider Name Locked
spent over 4 hours working on the tuning and demonstrated a couple times issues such as a B actually sounding higher than the A next to it. He explained that as he worked on the strings the pressure of tightening the higher notes would
throw the lower notes that had already been tuned back out of tune, so he would have to do those again.
As he was finishing
Raleigh Piano Tuners Provider Name Locked
played a full scale and then a couple numbers demonstrating that the piano was now in wonderful tune. We are very satisfied and will not wait as long to have the piano tuned the next time.
The scheduling was more difficult than we had hoped. They had to reschedule the first time, and then we had to reschedule the second time we chose, so that the elapsed time from booking to completion was quite long. We had no time pressure for the tuning to be completed, so the scheduling was not a problem, only an inconvenience.

was a few minutes late but he called and explained he would be arriving shortly as he had gotten our address
confused with another client's address. He was very apologetic for the delay and got started right away. He explained
what he would be doing and asked if I had any questions. I explained that the piano had not been tuned for at least
twenty or twenty-five years. He asked the age of the piano and I could not find the info the original owner had given
us when we bought the piano. We are the second owner and we bought it hoping our younger son would take lessons,
which he did for 10 years. After he finished high school and college it has not been played very much. I play some but
not very well as I didn't have lessons but a short time but also play by ear. I will definitely play more now.
I was very pleased with
Raleigh Piano Tuners Provider Name Locked
's professionalism and will recommend him to my friends as I have several who are
interested in having their piano tuned.
I look forward to him returning when it needs another tuning.

"The very professional tuner arrived right on time and got straight to work on our Yamaha piano. He was very friendly and knowledgeable. We had not had the piano tuned in several years (all the children who played it are out of the house now) but the technician understood the situation and did not make us feel irresponsible. He took his time and did a very thorough job. We were very pleased and will definitely use his services again.

"Mr.
Raleigh Piano Tuners Provider Name Locked
turned a piano that I inherited since the early 90s. The last time he turned the piano was during the national healthcare debate. Mr.
Raleigh Piano Tuners Provider Name Locked
began a strongly politically-charged conversation regarding this topic, which was highly unprofessional.
He did apologize at the end, but the damage was done. I have since hired another tuner and am highly satisfied with the workmanship, without the political rhetoric.

"He was amazing. So precise and careful! Our piano is over 100 years old, and he lovingly restrung a broken string, fixed the damper pedal and tuned the piano. I would refer him to anyone, anytime!
