Welcome to the twenty-fifth issue of “Piano Notes”. We are pleased to announce an additional service which should make it easier to confirm your tuning appointment booking. We will be sending out a reminder card prior to ‘phoning you to make your appointment. This way you have time to check your diary ahead of our call.
Please provide us with an email address as well so we can confirm by this method in the future. Browse our website for further information, special offers, and new information on our company.
Inside or Outside wall?
Many people ask “Can the piano be positioned on an outside wall?” Whilst this situation is not an “Old Wives Tale” it does relate to past times. The piano should be positioned with stable temperature and humidity. If the wall against which you place your piano “mirrors” the conditions on the other side of it ie. cold, damp or hot and dry, then this is not the best place for it. If the outside wall is not insulated, or the eaves are narrow, or rising damp is present then this is not the best position for your piano.
