Tuning A Piano

(Brief explanation: all those strings put extra strain on the sound board. While working on one side of the keyboard, the resulting tension can subtly alter the shape of the table, reducing tension in the middle octave, causing them to tune .) If you tune the midrange a little sharper, so when you are finished with high and low registers, the environment will, in theory refinement. 3. After you have tuned the first string, move the keys so that the first and second string release, but the third, if it exists, is still gripped by the wrench. Ignore the tuner. Just put your key in the plug of the second rope while repeatedly hitting the note, take the second string until it can hear more "additional notes", ie, that sounds like a single note, not two in disharmony.

Repeat with the third string, if necessary, with all keys removed. If you do not know well what should listen, here is an MP3 file (104k), imposed in a note on a piano while keying. On the tape, start with the middle string is tuned, then use my tuning wrench to loosen a string, and then go back to tune. Note: for convenience, I've turned this pin more than recommended. You should turn the pins as little as possible to avoid loose.

Alternatively, you could tune all the strings in a game with an electronic tuner, but that's not as easy as it sounds. Making that little indicator aligns the right way can be a bit tedious. Use your ear to tune the strings will be easier and make it sound better (see technical note below). 4. Repeat steps 2 and 3 for each note in the octave of the medium. 5. Use the first octave as a guide to tune the remaining octaves. Ignore back to the electronic tuner. Refine octaves above and below the middle ear, combining with the eighth of the medium, for example, of the, if, if, etc. .. This is called "tuning in unison." Tune a string of the note at a time (put damper in the other), this time compare with the corresponding note in the octave of the medium instead of the electronic tuner. Then tune the other string to the note described earlier. Repeat this procedure for all octaves, always using the nearest eighth tune to tune the next. There you have it, a piano tuned. What is missing from this piano tuning technique that a professional could provide? The main part of the procedure is summarized piano tuning tuning note for note in an octave, ie, using LA to refine DO, for example. This requires to have "touch", ie the strengths of the vibration that makes two dissonant chords. (Remember that when you tune two strings of the same note, for example, you touch them together for away). In addition, a professional will know how to stretch the octaves for better sound. You can also bring experience and cause less damage when dealing with the pins or break strings. They can also make repairs, and will be better and faster.
