Mrs. FMB is looking at teaching herself how to tuna fish... er, piano. Anyone on the board that does that, or know someone that does that, that can share some tools of the trade? Suggestions for good products to buy...

Apparently my first thought wasn't all that original.

You need to buy a tuning hammer and this little triangle thing thats probably called a dampener...it keeps the other strings (three per note mostly) quiet while you tune one single string. I tune my own and usually the piano is in tune enough to tune it to itself..just tuning the notes that are off. This system works fine for me and my A note is still 440 hz as it should be..Or close enough for the human ear. A piano store can help you with the purchase of tuning hammer and that dampener thing..Good luck

I've been known to tune my organ from time to time.

huh again...this would have been mid 70's. he was quite a bit older than his brother(my friend) and didn't live at home. i remember he had several trophies w/race cars on them in his old bedroom. i always wondered, "wtf? guy's blind and has racing trophies?"

never know.
