"My visit to the showroom was informative and relaxed. With the help of
, I picked out an OSU hand-me-down
that they" spruce up with a coat of paint and tack on a two-year warranty.
also has a trade-up program, so when I am ready to invest in a nicer piano I can apply the full price of the one I just bought towards a new piano.
picked out the nicest of the next bunch that OSU dropped off to have painted for me and two weeks later they delivered the new (to me) piano and hauled away our old clunker. A few weeks later I contacted
to tell him I was concerned with the high C sounding a little tinny. He promptly forwarded my message to
who made arrangements to come out and fix it the same day (the hammer was double striking). We are very pleased with their attention to service and satisfaction.

"I took the unit home and then realized that some of its functionality could be salvaged but it was inaccessible. Note that this functionality was accessible when" I first took the unit in for repair. I called and was told to bring the unit back and was then chastised for bringing it back when I got there. It's no wonder they had issues getting help from the vendor if they spoke to the vendor they way they spoke to me.

Musical instrument repair

If you already own or are thinking about owning a musical instrument, you'll need to factor in the cost of repair and maintenance for that instrument. Even the most carefully played instrument will require some amount of upkeep over the years. Luckily, if you have your instrument regularly serviced, you're less likely to run into costly repairs down the road.

Musical Instrument Repair

Is your woodwind wacky? Has your brass gone bad? Children’s marching band or other musical instruments get necessary tune-ups thanks to the keen eyes and steady hands of Indianapolis-area skilled craftsmen.

Their office staff is professional and friendly. My schedule is hectic and they were very accommodating. The tech,
Santa Monica Guitar Repairs Provider Name Locked
was very professional in his phone conversations. When he arrived (almost to the minute for our appointment), he let us know what our options were for the service and proceeded to clean the interior of our piano. Our piano has been in the family for over a hundred years and I was not expecting much out of it. He found the broken part and gave us a quote for returning to install it. When he finished the cleaning and tuning, he played a short piece on it. I'd never heard the piano sound so good. We had seriously thought that one day we would replace it, but he explained that this was a very good piano. Since it is a family heirloom and it sounds amazing, I think we'll keep it. I would recommend their service to anyone with a piano.

is competent, answered all my questions, and was a joy to have in the house. He's respectful about your house, and made sure he left it the way he found it. I finally have my piano back in mint condition! I'm so glad I found him!

I’ve been using him for a couple of years. He’s super prompt, friendly, calls to confirm the appointment in advance, and doesn’t charge a trip charge. I appreciate his knowledge and professionalism. He’s a technician as well as a tuner and he knows what he’s doing. It normally takes around an hour for him to do the work. Considering his pedigree as a piano tuner and the other clients that he works for, I feel very lucky to have him, especially at his rates. I also like that he will schedule the appointment six months in advance, although he doesn’t require that.

I am very pleased with how the piano sounds!

was very professional and superb to deal with.
Santa Monica Guitar Repairs Provider Name Locked
called to say he was running a little late for our appointment but would be here within a half hour. The tuning took about 1.5 hours. He recommended that because of the age of our piano that we have the action fixed in Artisan's shop. I will schedule that soon. I will also have Artisan tune our piano in the future as long as they honor their coupon on Angie's List.

My piano had not been tuned since 1986. It was moved from Pennsylvania to Seattle in 2007. My daughter started playing on it in 2012. Finally, I got around to having it tuned in 2014. I was worried that the tuning would cost much more, because there would be all kinds of things wrong with it. But

was very helpful, understanding, and efficient. He tuned the whole thing for the regular rate, and just recommended a follow-up tuning several months later (which other piano tuners had also recommended). He let us watch, and explained the insides of the piano to the kids. Super nice guy.

is a complete professional who takes great pride in his craft, whether moving or working on a good piano like the

understood that I had played this piano from childhood and that I was devastated when it was declared beyond repair. He was sensitive to my uncertainties about how a rebuild would

loves my piano almost as much as I do and treats it accordingly. The piano looks, sounds, and feels fabulous again, and

I contacted

He arrived on time and was able to diagnose the problem (broken string) repair it and bring the whole piano back to tune. I hadn't had it tuned in about 8 years (my bad) so while it was tune overall it was flat overall. The process took about 2 hours. He used some modern tech for the tuning process. I'm not exactly a concert pianist so I can't speak to the quality of the tune – I'm sure it's solid, especially if he's the go-to piano tuner for
