Weekly update: 29/06/16

A perfunctory weekly update. Aside from having some house work being done (a new kitchen), the week has seen the usual run of piano tunings across Sheffield, Rotherham and Doncaster (with one in Castleton and one in Barnsley). I also ordered a new tuning lever as my old one was starting to wear out and grip the pins less firmly than it should. Piano tuning tools are always quite expensive, but you’ve got to spend money to make money. It works like a charm and looks a lot like this:

I haven’t got any interesting stories to tell, but I thought I should keep this blog updated anyway. Hopefully, with a few more piano tuning bookings coming in, I’ll have something more to write about next week!

Weekly Update: 09/07/16

It’s been another busy week of piano tuning in Sheffield and South Yorkshire. Not only did I have another booking at the Cruicible Theater tuning their grand piano for the performance of Flowers In The Attic , I also have had more customers ringing me up from all over South Yorkshire (on one day I travelled from Rotherham to Sheffield to Doncaster for three seperate piano tuning sessions).

I’m raising my prices by £5 this week as although having such competitive prices has allowed me to find a lot more work (which was essential in my first year of tuning professionally), I’m now at the stage where these prices seem unfair to other Sheffield piano tuners and it seems the time is right to raise these prices slightly. A standard piano tuning will now cost £45 (with a £10 discount if it’s your first booking) which is still an absolute bargain as far as I’m concerned. If you’ve already got a booking with me as of today (09/07/16) the new prices won’t apply. The prices page has now been updated with the new prices added.
