Piano Tuning

WSPianos – Piano Tuning

Piano tuning is the art of making minute adjustments to the tensions of the strings of an acoustic piano to properly align the intervals between their tones so that the instrument is in tune. This requires an understanding of the basic physics of sound generation, its dynamics and harmonic structures to tricords, beats and sound cancellation.

Pianos consist of white and black keys which can have up to three strings attached to them. Piano tuningĀ  requires the tightening of each individual string and to repeat this process over 200 times per piano.

Werner Stolze is a master piano tuning specialist, trained and nurtured by four generations of specialists and for this reason his competence and dedication for tuning pianos are unsurpassed With that being said, the Stolze family business have perfected the art of tuning pianos across Europe and Africa since 1919.
