Hello (Piano) World!
From time to time, this site gets referenced at the Piano World forums or other places. Reviews, as always, are mixed. Some people there like this site, others express concern.
Piano World is simply the best piano-focused forum out there, especially for technicians and tuners. As a rule, though, I avoid posting at Piano World, even in my defense. I am not a professional tuner. I do not want to appear self-promoting. I browse the forums to learn, not to lead. I save responses for my own website. Even so, I welcome the visitors who may arrive here from any external link. Feel free to comment; I am always looking for ways to improve this site. Short of deleting it, of course.
On the other hand, I respectfully ask that visitors please read the whole piano tuning tutorial. Don't just look a picture or read a paragraph. This site has been up for quite a while, and chances are that somewhere I have addressed many concerns that are commonly raised even by professionals. If I have missed something, then let me know.
