Piano Tuning in Adelaide is recommended at least once a year depending on the quality of the piano and because of the many working parts, regulation and adjustments that are often needed. If your piano is played regularly, it is best to get the piano tuned at least yearly so that its overall pitch remains stable.
Pianos can drop below concert pitch (A440) if left untuned for a long periods of time. Additional costs will be incurred as a follow-up tuning will be required within a few weeks after the initial tuning to stabilise the piano to concert pitch.
Upright Tuning:- Initial Tuning fee for new clients or pianos that have not been regularly tuned – $190.00+ GST. For pianos that have been tuned annually (regularly) by Brighton Pianos $170.00+ GST. (Includes action adjustments)

The word ‘piano’ is a shortened form of pianoforte (PF) (the Italian word for the instrument).
The piano has over 12,000 parts, 10,000 of which are moving. It is an enormous number of small pieces that need to work perfectly to get the sound that you want out of the instrument.
The strings are made out of steel and produce their sound when struck by tiny hammers inside the piano. Each string usually holds about 170 pounds of tension. This is one of the reasons why piano tuning is a job for a specialist!
The range of the piano goes from the lowest note you can play on a double-bassoon to the highest note you can play on a piccolo. That is an entire orchestral range in one instrument!
… the piano is actually a relatively new instrument! The first piano constructed was made in 1698 by Bartolomeo Cristofori in Italy.
… that during the past 100 years, there have been about 5,000 different piano brands?
… that since the 1950s, piano keys are no longer made from ebony and ivory but plastics?
… that a piano usually has 230 strings and can produce 88 different notes?
