Keeping the motivation to play piano going is tough for some people. If you sit down to play, and striking the keys brings out a terrible noise, your motivation can drop off all the way. Playing a piano that is out of tune is an ugly experience. Seasoned professionals can get your piano back to its beautiful sound quick as can be.
But where did that terrible sound come from? Is there anything you can do to prevent your piano from going out of tune? These questions and more will be answered when you continue reading to learn more about why pianos go out of tune.
Cause #1: Everyday Use
Take your piano being out of tune as a good sign. Each time you use your piano, you affect the instrument. The more you use it, the more you change its tune. Strangely enough, leaving your piano alone for too long will also make it lose its tune. Make sure to regularly tune your instrument to keep it working well and sounding beautiful.
Cause #2: Weather Shifts
Most quality pianos use natural wood as their main material. Wood gets affected by humidity and quick temperature changes. The moisture your piano absorbs from the air can cause it to expand and change the overall sound produced. Dried out strings can become slack, which also affects the sound. Beware of where your piano sits - vents, windows, and direct sunlight can all impact your piano and its level of tune.
Cause #3: Moving Your Piano
Your piano is a delicate instrument. Professionals know how to move a piano with care, whereas unscrupulous movers will try to “make it work,” damaging your property. Experienced companies such as Evola Music care about instruments and want people to enjoy them. Since 1931, we have been in the instrument business, so we know how to care for them best.
