and could save you money on major repairs.
Prolongs the life of the strings
Maintains the pitch
Checks the tuning system
Tuning a piano after a prolonged period of rest could damage the strings as you raise the pitch.The pitch of a piano drops substantially over time hence, to bring the instrument back to pitch, excessive movement to the strings while the pins are turned can cause, in some instances, strings to break.
By tuning the piano, the technician is also checking for tightness of the pins. Loose pins could mean replacements of strings are necessary.
