“Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, it’s not going to get better, it’s not.”
I’m almost certain that I’ve worked on a worse sounding piano than whatever you’ve got. I’m also certain that someone will prove that statement to be wildly wrong. If you’re worried about any sort of embarrassment for having a piano in complete disrepair or just that it has been so long since its last tuning don’t stress it. You either have to decide to junk it and get a new piano or schedule an appointment with me, I’m here to set things right with the instrument.
