Basic tuning (1.5 – 2 hours)
Upright piano: $500
Grand piano: $600
This is a bare-bone service is for piano that is regularly tuned and maintained. These pianos have minimum issues and are well regulated in general. Aside from tuning, we do limited amount of regulation for optimal performance result.
Pitch-Raise / -Lowering (2 – 2.5 hours)
Upright piano: $700
Grand piano: $800
For piano not tuned for more than 1 year, their overall pitch could be too low or too high. When the tuning is out of the range of A437 – 443, and has to be tuned back to the standard A440, more intensive tuning procedure must be employed.

5 Hours - $1250
6 Hours - $1500
3 Hours - $900
4 Hours - $1200

When a piano has not been tuned and serviced for more than 1 year, it likely requires an assortment of small repairs. Extended Visit allows 3 or more hours of service for additional care; this includes raising to standard pitch and string replacements.
Although specialty materials and techniques are taken into an account, service time plays a huge part in our pricing. For the best time management, tuning is included into service time. For example, tasks involving adhesive are done first to allow enough cure time.
In general, 6 hours are enough for most in-home service. Examples of tasks are full-scale regulation and/or part replacement procedures (for all 88 keys), deep cleaning (especially insect infestation), large amount of replacements for broken parts. When service exceed 6 hours, maximum charge will be $2000 (same as "Full Day Visit").
We are Flexible!
There’s all kinds of improvement we can provide for your beloved piano. However, for clients with limited budget, we are happy to adjust accordingly to clients’ need. Some minor repairs can be waited until future service appointments, separating the costs into several appointments.
Upright piano: $500 (Updated)
Grand piano: $600 (Updated)
We offer piano evaluation for clients who are interested in purchasing quality used piano from private owners. This is because both the sellers and buyers likely have little knowledge of the condition of pianos. For buyers, it is a nightmare to only discover their newly purchased pianos are due for costly repair. Worst is that the piano doesn’t worth repairing. To prevent such scenario, we offer evaluation service prior transaction.
Note: It might be difficult if the pianos in question are being let go for free, because the owners might not want to put up with the trouble.
Upright / Grand piano: $2000
Quality and sentimental pianos deserve the most detail care. It is typical to require more than 6 hours for intensive action and tuning work. More time consuming regulation and repairs will be included in this full day service.

Ms. Choi used to supervise college music students with cleaning pianos in the US, it is a fun and valuable learning experience for them!
Minimum Visit Fee
Due to transportation cost and commuting time, we have a minimum fee of $400. Therefore we’d always encourage combining repairs and tuning within one appointment.
Additional Transportation Compensation
Hong Kong is not big, nor small! We base in North District of New Territories and hope to keep our one-way commuting time less than 1.5 hours. Additional compensation might be required for extra travel time and/or express transportation.
New Territories? Tuen Mun? Yuen Long?
As a North District resident, it is rather convenient for me to visit location many considered to be "remote". For locations in North District, Tuen Mun, Yuen Long and Tai Po, Ms. Choi can drive to you! (Best with free parking!)
In general, there no individual price discounts. It would be unfair to our other clients. Also, tuning and repairing pianos are physic labor work involving specialized skills. Therefore, there are no wholesale price. If your budget is limited, we can prioritize necessary repairs to minimize the costs. If you simply want a cheaper price, expect a discount on service quality as well. However, since that would violate our service principals, I'd recommend hiring another technician. Thank you.
