    Why Pianos goes out of tune

    Understanding why a piano goes out of tune, you need to first remember that the whole instrument is always being subjected to different amounts of stress. On an 88 key piano there are approximately two hundred and thirty-five strings. Each string when at international pitch (440 cps) has approximately hundred pounds of tension, so that the iron plate, together with the heavy wooden framing carries a tension of about eighteen to twenty tons.

    This tension is not constant because the steel wire used for stringing is of a high form of elasticity. The soundboard only a thin sheet of spruce wood that is about three-eighths of an inch in thickness. If the soundboard is correctly constructed, the whole soundboard becomes a kind of elastic in nature. The more elastic it is, the freer and better the tone the piano can produce.

    Acoustic Pianos VS Digital Pianos

    We can start with some key facts about the piano. Modern acoustic pianos have been around for hundreds of years. Bartolomeo Cristofori invented the first pianoforte in Venice, Italy.

    He Created a hammer mechanism that would produce sound by striking the string and causing a vibration of that string and passing the vibration through the bridge to the soundboard.

    Many musical instruments produce sound in this manner; the way you cause the strings to vibrate will differ. You might pluck or pick the strings of your guitar. A bow can be used to make the sounds that come from a violin or a cello.

    With an acoustic piano, you push down on the keys to cause a hammer to hit and bounce off of the strings. This brings up a little trivia. Most people would say that a piano is a strung instrument however it is actually a percussion instrument. Hammer strikes the string 

    This allows the strings to vibrate and allows the pianist to give expression

    How often should I tune my Piano

    Piano Tuning and how often it should be tuned is a somewhat tricky question to answer. There are many factors in play, for instance, let's assume it is a church or school piano. These instruments are often subject to radical  humidity changes. In the case of a church, people usually show up in church on Sundays and Wednesday nights. When there are many people in Church, the humidity rises. Our bodies are made up of a high percentage of water and we affect the tuning of the piano. We then leave the sanctuary and the humidity drops. It does not take to many times of this and, you guessed it, the piano is out of tune. Schools are the same way only can be even worse. These pianos should be tuned quarterly.

    Then there is the case of the home piano. Are there young children that are taking lessons? For these pianos, special care must be taken. When a child is learning it is critical that the piano be kept at a pitch or the student will learn to hear the wrong

    Purchasing a Used Piano

    There is not a Blue Book for a used piano, as a result, there is no standard pricing. This is very good for you, the consumer. Many times, people will sell their used piano after many years, assuming that it has little value when in fact this is not true. When looking for a used piano, never assume the folks that are selling the piano know what it is actually worth. The area of the country makes a huge difference in its value. The difference in a few hundred miles can make a difference in hundreds of dollars. Second, take for instance a piano that was purchased in 1955 for $495.00.

    The seller might think that because the piano is over 50 years old that it is not worth much. They may be inclined to sell it to you for $50.00 or less. This piano could possibly be worth $1000.00 or more. Now, this is not
