Hi - I'm looking for a piano tuner to give some TLC to my (very out of tune) piano. Also needs to be able to replace two strings. It's an upright (nto sure whether that makes any difference).

Any recommendations?

Neil Cole at 'The Piano Consultancy' is highly recommended, I don't play (!) but I know people who use him.

If it is badly out of tune, it will need its pitch raised, which is usually done over two tunings; this is to avoid sudden over-tensioning of the strings.

I have had excellent results with:

Morleys Pianos Se13 (obviously their tech comes to you) (website for Brian Lettice, tuner/tech)

Beware though that the thicker (bass) strings are more expensive.

Good luck! My Danemann initially needed all this too, but it was well worth it.

I can also recommend Phil Ridaut if need a number.

He has tuned my piano at home (not the one at the Laughing Gravy don't worry!) - he came recommended by my cousin who is a piano teacher

let me know if need

I've spoken to the first one on the list, and he sounded like he knew what he was doing! Could probably do with a piano teacher though....
