Back when I had an acoustic piano, a had purchased a tuning hammer and some mutes. I never have nor never intended to tune my entire piano, but I have done a little touch up between tunings, fixing unisons that go out, or one or two notes here and there. This greatly extended the time I could go between tunings, and wasn't hard to learn how to do.

That is much less frequent than I was expecting. That is without tweaking a few strings in between the tunings?


You might be surprise that it is much less frequent than you where expecting but bear in mind that the most often a piano is tuned, the less it tends to go out of tune.

Like I say and saw other say it too:

Don't tune your piano because it is out of tune, tune it to keep it in tune

So do I, but I have learned to listen to what I have to listen to, and I tune for the greats.
