IF I HAD A NICKLE for every time I heard someone say, "It has a cracked soundboard so it can't be tuned," I would be wealthy indeed. Contrary to popular belief, a cracked soundboard has nothing to do with the tuning. Many pianos have cracked soundboards, but still are wonderful instruments. Sometimes, though, a crack can be severe enough to cause rib separation resulting in a buzzing sound while playing the piano. Fortunately, this situation can be remedied by repairing the soundboard/rib joint to eliminate buzzing. Stay tuned for Part Two: What is a Soundboard?
As you get ready to sell your piano, you probably have several thoughts going through your mind. What is it worth? How do I go about selling it? First, have it tuned. "What?" you're thinking, "I just want to sell it, not spend more money on it!" If your piano has just been tuned, it will sound better than the hundreds of out of tune pianos for sale out there, and show buyers that it has been cared for. When I do a presale tuning I can give you an idea of what it is worth, condition, tips on marketing and give an expert opinion to potential buyers.
Fall, my favorite time of year, is now in full swing. After a summer full of storms, the weather now has been just glorious, the leaves are turning, and the nights now have a bit of chill. Fall is also a great time if you are planning on selling your piano. School has started, piano lessons are beginning for the year, and the holidays are not far off. Many people at this time of year are looking for a good, used piano to get a child started in lessons, and churches looking to upgrade are now seeing that need.
