    George Knotek
    Superb work. We were gifted a Steinway Model M Studio Grand Piano, but it was not in the best shape. George came over and assessed the piano, thoroughly explained the work he would have to do on it, and provided a detailed estimate. He also showed us pictures of work he had done on other pianos. He took care of making arrangements to get the piano to his workshop and bring it back. The whole process was very smooth. When the piano was returned, it in beautiful shape. George had completely repaired the mechanical aspects of the piano, but he also refinished the piano wood, which had been previously pockmarked with scratches and damaged. Also worth noting...while George was working on the piano in his workshop, he saw that components of the piano showed evidence of heavy moth damage that he did not see when he made his original estimate. Consequently, the repairs took longer and were more extensive than what he had planned for. It's a testament to his work and business ethics that George did not budge from his original estimate and increase the cost, despite the fact that he had clearly spent extra hours and done extra work. We would definitely hire him again, and plan to use him for all of out general piano tuning and maintenance needs.

    George was amazing. He spent a great deal of time explaining the issues with my piano and was prompt and flexible regarding getting the repairs done. He made recommendations on the next time I would have to have my piano serviced and where I could get lessons. He educated me regarding my instrument and I could tell that he was passionate about his job. I would recommend him to anyone who wants their piano serviced and is interested in learning more about the music industry in general.

    The overall experience went very well. George was very knowledgeable and was able to tell me information about my piano and pianos in general. The piano sounds great and I intend to use George in the future.

    Our piano had not been tuned in who knows how long. George determined right away that this was going to be a heck of a project for him. I already had figured that out before I called him. Anyway, George was totally professional, and set to work right away. Our piano sounded awful, and when he was tuning it, it was abundantly clear how bad we let it get. It ended up taking two times up and down the scale, and about 2 hours, for the piano to be tuned. The piano sounds 1000% better in my opinion. I would recommend George to anyone who needs their piano tuned. He was courteous, professional, and explained what he thought needed to be done before he started, and continued to explain as he dug into the project, and kept finding more stuff. He didn't make us feel bad about how much we had mistreated this musical instrument, he just went ahead and did the best that he could do to fix the problems. We will have George back out in 6 months to re-tune our piano, and then yearly after that. Georges rates were very reasonable also. The whole project only cost $165 + tax I thought this was well worth it, considering how bad it sounded before, and how good it sounds now. Thanks George, we appreciate all your hard work.

    George was the only piano tuner to call me back after I submitted a request for services to more than 5 companies. He was punctual, focused, and incredibly educated on pianos and piano tuning. I learned a lot from him in the short time he was here, and would highly recommend him for any piano tuning/repair job. He did superb work, and is very professional!

    My piano had not been tuned for about two years. George called right away to schedule a tuning. He was late arriving, but called about 1 1/2 hours before the appointment in case that would be a problem. He spent quite a long time working, did some extra work after I approved it, and explained a lot of it. The fee was very reasonable. I would definitely hire George again next year.

    George rebuilt my 1941 Chickering baby grand piano and I am thrilled with it! He replaced my bass strings and changed out the pins for a larger size so they will hold a tune better. The old bass was dead and the sound is definitely much more resonant. He cleaned the entire instrument, painted the lyre and applied a new medallion. He voiced the instrument so that it is more appropriate for work with vocalists (I’m a voice teacher). The tone was previously quite brassy and bright, which made it extremely loud for voice work. Now the tone has mellowed and is much richer with better harmonics. It will undoubtedly work better with vocalists. George also adjusted the action. Previously it had trouble with single hammers striking the strings for two different notes, which of course sounded awful. That problem is entirely gone. Additionally the instrument is much more responsive and easier to play. I am very happy with George’s work and plan to use him for all my future piano needs. He did a beautiful job on my piano and I will get many more years out of this beautiful instrument.

    Greg's Piano Forte
    Greg was a fountain of information. I called him to investigate a rattling noise that had developed over the past year, and to give me an overall assessment of my 1950's Steinway and Sons upright. I felt that he was a standup guy, talking to me about what would be worth putting money into, and what wouldn't be. After taking the piano apart, cleaning it and checking for loose pieces, and putting it back together, he diagnosed the problem as likely coming from the hammer felts which have become hard over time/use (which is what another technician also said, this was my second opinion). He discussed possible options. He was not pushy at all. He gave me lots of insight into when to repair, and when to replace, and when buying a piano, how to research that to make a good purchase. He was always polite and friendly. He returned my call within an hour and was able to come the same day.

    Mr. Knotek worked very carefully and methodically on our piano and gave it the TLC it deserved. I can vouch for his expertise. The price includes a full tuning plus repairs.
