PIANO TUNING TOOLS AND KITS

The tools we sell are not flea market quality.
I was asked to carry a line of Chinese tools by the manufacturer.
I examined samples, and they were typical--
Machining was poor, steel blackened with age, and they
showed that piano technicians did not design them.
You can save a bundle on the Web by hunting for Chinese junk.
To you who want quality, welcome.

 

ORDERING INFORMATION:

MINIMUM ORDER:
Minimum Order $20

SHIPPING POLICY:
      Priority Mail shipping for most items. UPS by request.

You MUST browse the Catalog area, and try to learn what you want. We no longer search our catalog for you.

Have this information ready:
     1. Description of parts
     2. Part Numbers
     3. Prices
     4. Dimensions where needed
BEFORE you call us please.

Make sure you are in the catalog area for your kind of piano--
Such as Grand Pianos,
Full Uprights, Spinets, etc.

If you are confused, call us for assistance.

If we do not answer the phone, we are probably here-- Just leave a message- we will return your call (it may not be the same day).
:-)





There are some jobs that require the right tools.  Piano tuning is
one of them.  I have seen the tuning pins after someone tried to
tune a piano with vice grips or an inverted quarter inch socket.  
The point is not only the botched job of tuning-- Often the pins
are ruined and have to be removed and replaced-- VERY costly!

Don't try to improvise unless I have told you how in the online book chapters.

For all parts possible I give you a diagram identity number so you can go to
the  Diagram and double check to see if you are ordering the right part.  It is
impossible to give a "Back" button to return from so many links, so please
use your browser's "Back" button.

Also, I give you a link to the page which tells how to make the repair or
installation of the new part.

 

YOU CAN NOW ORDER BY PHONE

 

How we help you better:

Steve has 23 years experience as a piano tuner. Steve is on hand helping fill orders and answering the phone.

When you buy a tool kit from us,
you get Keith also.

Well, sort of-- Keith won't be around to freeload pie and coffee, but you can e-mail him and call the tech. number (715) 803-4556 anytime for help.

Read the online help area, and then call if you don't understand. No one offers a deal like this anywhere in the world. We WANT you to succeed, whether you live in Boston, Bangladesh, or out back of Bourke.

Why are our Tool Kit choices a bit complex?

First, we have found that most folks can figure out what we are doing here.
Second, every person has slightly differing needs. So, we want YOU to have options.
Virtually no one in this trade offers the mix and match method of building a tool kit like this.
So, get a cup of java, and spend some time. You will be able to get the very best combination
of tools to meet your needs.

Touch Up Tool Kit
(No Regulating Tools Included):

Indicate "Touch Up Tool Kit " on the order blank
or when ordering by phone.

This tool kit is for the person who wants to keep the piano in tune between regular tunings.
There are no regulating tools in this kit.
For regulation as well as tuning tools see the next kit below.
Here are some reasons why to buy this kit: 

1.  You need to do a panic tuning and the piano tuner is not available.  
           This kit will be on hand and ready.
2.  You have a piano tuner tune regularly,
           but you simply want to clean up various notes which go out
           due to weather or moving the piano.
3.  You have notes where the tuning pins are loose and particular strings go out frequently.
4.  A string broke, and you are replacing it yourself.
5.  You have a studio and demand absolute perfection.  
           A professional tuning every week is out of the question financially.
6.  Your piano has been restrung, and the strings need to be pulled up frequently
           until they are seasoned.

Professional Level Tool Kit

This it the most complete kit we offer. We do not make a lot of substitution choices-- too complicated.
We have taken the best of our product line, and we offer it here to the VERY serious customer who is
making a career change. Do not buy this kit if you are not 100% sure you are headed into the piano tuning
profession. It is a large investment. I must say though, this kit will save you a LOT of cash over the process
of correspondence courses and their rather meager offerings for the price they charge.
This is the kit for a self-taught learner.


HERE IS WHAT YOU FIND IN THIS KIT:

1. THE STANDARD TOOL KIT
              WITH Our First Quality Rosewood Extension Lever
              See the kit above

2. THE MASTER REGULATING TOOL KIT

3. THE TOTAL PIANO TUNING INSTRUCTION KIT

4. THE Peterson AutoStrobe 490-ST Stretch Tune

PIANO TUNING TOOLS

These tools are essential to do a good tuning.  
I try to give you a choice if you expect to do just one tuning or many.

READ THIS PLEASE:  There are many other Piano Tool options on the market.  
You may purchase them from other sources.  Here, you have the advantage of knowing that I have
either used the tools I sell, or I have researched them with other old timers in the trade.  
So, I do NOT list every tool available.  This is good for YOU, and it prevents returns  :-)

Tuning Pin Socket for Brace  Three sided for carpenter's brace  
           For turning in and removing tuning pins fast   3 1/4 inch long
           16079 in illustration                                                                                              SH25                 $ 27.60

Tuning Pin Extractor This 3/4 inch long tool (not shown in Illustration) will remove
           a tuning pin which has been damaged by amateur efforts to turn a tuning pin
           with improvised tools. It will also remove a pin which has broken off at the
           hole. The tool fits into the tip of a tuning lever. It has tapered reversed threads
           so that, when turned counterclockwise, it bites the top of the broken pin and
           removes it. This is similar to an "easy out" used in automotive applications on
           broken engine bolts. It will seldom be needed, but when such an emergency
           transpires, this is the ONLY thing to save the day. It should be in EVERY
           professional tool kit. If the tuner before you did not have one, this tool will
           make you look like his superior for sure. You will want to price the task to
           pay for the tool the first time since you will seldom use it.                                      SH110               $ 34.00

Felt Wedge Mute-  White and gray mute (not hammer scrap) Fine cut-- Very classy
           Will not deteriorate over time like rubber, but will slightly fluff with age to mute

           Also, may be used in buffing situations (key tops) with liquid compound.

 Split to mute the
    middle string only. No longer has steel handle;
has handle like the 203 mute.             SH204            $  5.80

Papp's Treble Mute--  From England
Classic case of over-engineering--
I added plastic tape to the outside of
the jaws on mine and trimmed neat.
         BUT, very useful to select which string you want to mute--                                                   SH207            $ 11.95

Red felt temperament mute-  Used to mute two octaves in the center of the piano
         when setting the temperament-  Also, mute the bass on grands with a second one.

         This mute is tapered from 3/4 to 1/2 inch to help cross the treble break--                   SH209          $ 7.80
         Two of the above felt temperament mutes-                                                                                        $14.00

         Above mute-- tapered from 3/4 to 1/2 inch to help cross the treble break--
         The difference in this mute is that it is thinner-- 1/8 inch thick--                                             SH209T        $ 7.80

Gang Mute-  This fits into the temperament octave without having
          to push felt between the wires.  Saves time, and easy to use.
         You may want to cut the tips shorter to avoid hanging up on the sound board
         This mute is only practical with grand pianos.  May be modified with uprights.               SH 211         $ 12.50

PROTECT YOUR HEARING



After 40 years of tuning pianos I have suffered some hearing loss. I did not have any indication that this could happen when I started in the tuning trade. In recent years I have talked to several tuners who had the same experience. Other tuners have told me they use ear plugs to reduce the volume of sound to protect their hearing.

Hearing protection must not interfere with hearing the beats and subtleties of sound. So, I have located a source for ear plugs which will reduce the sound level by 17 decibels. This is enough to take the force out of the loud pounding we need to do to set a string so that it will not move later.

I personally tested the ear plugs, and I was very pleased with the results. I could still hear all of the tone and sound features I needed in order to tune, but the pain was gone. I am so sorry I did not learn about this long ago.

These are not generic ear plugs, though I admit they look rather simplistic in the photo. They are tested and approved for safety purposes in the industrial world and are used in machine shops where mid level noise is a problem. Instructions are included to properly fit the ear plugs. They must be worn under the chin to be effective. This also gets them out of the way when working.

The yellow replacement plugs are available though our store.

May I say this.... ?
