Newfound Pianos sweetens sour notes with professional piano tunings. During a tuning, a technician with deep piano expertise sets pianos of any size to standard concert pitch, which is recognized by musicians worldwide as the ideal tuning. Precise tweaks dispel the inner discord of home pianos as stuck keys are loosened, internal strings and tuning pins are tightened, and ejector seats are set to “Chopsticks.” Most pianos are tuned in 60–90 minutes and exclusively by ear, as an expert’s ear can fine-tune instruments to the acoustic nuances that make each instrument sound slightly different.
When left to their own devices and the whims of the climate, pianos tend to fall out of tune and, if neglected for too long, into disrepair. Newfound Pianos bring such instruments back into playing order, with services that range from standard tunings to complete restoration projects. Their technicians' expertise extends over a wide variety of brands and piano styles and even to the intricate workings of player pianos. The shop also carries a collection of used and restored pianos for sale and offers climate-control systems to protect the ebonies and ivories.
