A piano is a mechanically complicated musical instrument with thousands of moving parts that need to be regulated and calibrated.
If a pre-owned piano is not up to our standards we dispose of them.
Only someone with experience tuning and repairing pianos can tell you for sure if a piano only needs to be tuned.
Don’t take the risk of moving a piano into your home that should have been put out to pasture.
