We like you to know exactly what you will pay up front.
Most technicians across the USA will give you a quote for the basic tuning fee on the phone which is usually between $100-145. These quotes do not include any extra work including the pitch raise which is almost always required and up sold to you in your home before they begin the tuning. This is the way the industry works, but we think its awkward and unfair to you. We offer you a FLAT RATE, no worry guarantee and we include the pitch raise and minor repairs in our first Initial Tuning! There are never hidden fees, added fees, or pressure to spend more money. I believe this is one reason why Apex is the highest rated technician team with 70+ 5-Star reviews on Google and Social Media!
Each tuning includes a full inspection and a written condition report with clear estimates for any additional work we feel would be helpful to improve your piano beyond tuning. We focus on educating you about the proper care of your piano and provide an online learning center with PDF downloads so you can think about it and make an educated decision based on your musical needs. Do you have questions? Contact me and let me know by email, phone or text! – Eric Roberts, Owner of the Apex Piano Technicians Network

6 Month/Standard Tuning Service – $135
We will stabilize the pitch and tune your piano so it sounds beautiful! We will also adjust the pedals, lubricate the action as needed and ease any sticky keys! This will lay a solid foundation for the stability and future care of your piano. At every tuning, we inspect everything inside your piano give you a complete condition report. This condition report will help you understand the current condition of your piano and includes quotes and suggestions for the future care of your piano. Pitch raises, repairs, regulation and voicing are additional.
Do you have sticking keys?
A sticking key can be as simple as pulling a lost pencil out of the piano action OR the sticking key could be a symptom of a much larger problem. Either way we can fix it! For minor repairs that take less than 5 minutes we do not charge anything additional during a tuning service. When more extensive repair work is needed we bill at a rate of $25 per 15 min increments. Don’t worry, we always talk first before we do additional work.
What if there are major problems with your piano?
During the initial tuning and inspection we will be able to assess what is needed to bring your piano to optimal condition and will provide written recommendations.
