What Services Do I Offer?

I have been tuning and repairing pianos in the Brainerd area since 2003. Service I can offer:

  • Tuning,

  • Action regulation,

  • Key top replacement,

  • Hammer voicing,

  • String repair and replacement, and

  • Damp Chaser installation.

I tune by ear and by computer. I learned to tune piano by ear and continue to do so. I also use a computer to tune as well. By combining aural and machine tuning, a very good sounding and stable tuning can be achieved.

Get to Know Us

My name is David Smith. I grew up in a musical family, graduated from Brainerd High School and Central Lakes Community College, and have been tuning and repairing pianos in the Brainerd area since 2003. I received my training by apprenticing with two Piano Technician Guild members, Dennis Benson, Willmar, Minnesota and Ken Hannah, Stillwater, Minnesota.

Why is it important to tune your piano on a regular basis?

  • A piano is a major financial purchase for a family or an organization, therefore, it is important to protect that investment by regular maintenance.

  • Minnesota experiences extremes in temperature and humidity.

  • Pianos are a wooden instrument and are affected by humidity changes. When it is humid, the wood swells and when it is dry the wood shrinks. This process leads to pianos becoming out of tune.

  • Pianos are specifically designed to be tuned to the international pitch standard of A-440 cycles per second in order to sound their best

  • Not only will your piano sound its optimum best when it is tuned regularly and kept in proper playing condition, but it will also be more enjoyable to play.
