Digital Piano Tuning

What type of piano do you have or what type of piano are you considering to purchase? When it comes to purchasing a piano, you should think about digital piano tuning. The reason why is that digital piano tuning is not a requirement. While any other type of piano such as an upright or grand piano will require regular tuning – at least twice per year – digital tuning is not needed since the digital piano sounds are stored digitally in the hardware of the piano.

Since digital piano tuning is not required for digital pianos, you will save at a minimum (if regular service was rendered) $150 to $200 for twice a year piano tuning services but could save twice that if you had a regular schedule of having your piano tuned every three months when the seasons change, which affects the tuning of your acoustic piano, especially in areas of drastic weather change in the humidity. In addition, digital pianos tend to be less expensive when compared to acoustic pianos.

Digital piano tuning not being a requirement is something that many potential piano owners see as a true advantage. Not only will unnecessary digital piano tuning save them money but it will also save them a ton of time. There will be no need to learn how to perform digital piano tuning, since it technically does not exist, nor will there be the need to contact a professional tuner to come tune the piano when the piano goes out of tune.

So, are you wondering why digital piano tuning is not required? If so, I have the answer for you. As I said earlier, the sounds are stored digitally in the hardware thus there are no strings. If you’ve never owned an acoustic piano or know nothing at all about acoustic pianos, when it comes to tuning the piano, it is the strings that you tune one by one.

Touching on the subject of the sounds being digitally stored, this means that more than one sound can be stored and used with the digital piano. For example, the hardware could have the sounds of an upright piano, a grand piano, even a tack piano, which allows for any of these sounds to be played on the digital piano. In addition, digital pianos also often possess the sounds of other instruments apart from other types of pianos. This poses as a huge advantage to many piano owners that like to play a variety of pianos and sounds.

Another advantage over standard pianos apart from unnecessary digital piano tuning, cost, and more sound options is the overall piano weight. Digital pianos weight 200-300 pounds less than an upright piano and much more than a grand piano. In addition, you can hook up headphones while playing so that you are the only one to hear the music you are playing rather than the music flowing through speakers for everyone in the room and anyone near to hear.
