Tune ups, who needs them! - 10/11/05 08:59 PM
I have a Baldwin Hamilton upright which hasn't been tuned (or played much) in ten years. (We bought it new ten years ago.) I've recently dedicated myself wholeheartedly to the piano for the first time, and I'm noticing that the sound is very honky-tonk and dull, and the range of dynamics is very small (I can only play loud and louder). Is that mostly due to the nature of uprights, or does my piano desperately, desperately need a tune-up? Will it need to be tuned twice after not being tuned in so long?
