(If you're new to this series, I am writing about my tuning journey, counting my first 100 tunings. Check out previous posts here:
I've gotten seriously behind on my blogging, so I am going to do a catch-up blog. And let's face it, I keep coming back to the same 10 pianos so there is only so much I can tell you about them. Hopefully I meet some new one's soon!
Piano Tuning #22 was another spinet getting it's first tuning. Tuning with toddlers running around is always an adventure, especially when one of them is yours and you are tuning for a friend. My friends let me tune their pianos. Do you want to be my friend?
Piano Tuning #23 was my own piano. Yes the piano tuner's piano does get tuned. Unfortunately tuning pianos only serves to make me more aware of when my piano needs work, which can sometimes be tricky to fit into my schedule!
Piano Tuning #24 was my church's piano. I tune this piano 2-3 times per year. It has a humidifier system in it which does a great job at getting us through the constantly changing temperature (and humidity).
Piano Tuning #25 was another spinet. Please stop buying spinets.
Piano Tuning #26 was another spinet for another friend. Read about piano #22 and toddlers. I need to get back to this house soon too.
Piano Tuning #27 was a new piano! This one surprisingly did not need a pitch raise, although it had been some time since it's last tuning. I want to say something about why, but I really don't know why.
Piano Tuning #28 was a return to an old client. I had not tuned their piano for a year, but it was still doing pretty well. They moved the piano from it's own room to a living room with a wood stove so I'm curious to see if there are any changes the next time I see this piano.
Piano Tuning #29 was my own piano. We moved! (Reason # 1 why I haven't done much blogging in a year). Pianos always need a good tuning after a move, but it usually a good idea to wait a few weeks so it can get acclimated to the new environment.
Piano Tuning #30 was my own piano.
In between piano tuning #29 and #30 I cut my hand, had nerve surgery to repair the damage, and then had a baby (reasons #2-4 why I haven't done much blogging in a year). So it was actually 6 months between those two tunings.
Now I'm back!
And I'm happy to report that I have FINALLY saved enough and called to order a tuning device to help me refine my tuning skills. I hope to resume blogging and resume tuning as my life returns to some new semblance of normal.
