I recently acquired a piano from a family member; a fairly basic compact 1970s upright. After the initial excitement wore off I realised that it felt like I was fighting it every time I tried to play it. The keys were stiff and you couldn’t play it fast or quietly. Phil was confident in his appraisal and now the work has been carried out I can’t emphasise what a difference he has made; it is responsive and feels effortless to play. I would highly recommend Phil’s work.

Very pleased indeed with Phil’s piano tuning. He is most pleasant and extremely professional and my piano sounds better than ever. I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending his expert work.

Phil did such an amazing job on my piano. We’d bought it as new but something always felt ‘off’ with its sound. Too harsh and too bright. I was intrigued by Phil’s re-voicing service so we booked him in.

Immediately, Phil understood the frustrations I was experiencing and set to work. The results are amazing! So much more dynamic and emotionally involving. The piano’s now a real pleasure to play and I wish I’d had him work on it ages ago. Thanks Phil!

Very pleased with our piano tuning from Phil, he was professional and offered some welcome advice about decreasing the echo
in the small room our piano is in. I would not hesitate to use him again
Thank you

Phil is the only tuner I want to use for my Yamaha C6 grand. The piano is used exclusively for professional recordings. He has been my first-call tuner since I got the piano installed in the studio. His tunings are excellent as is his attention to detail. I have only had excellent feedback from my clients – and the tuning is a big part of that! I can highly recommend Phil as his work is first rate.

The cycling piano tuner was great, perfectly polite and left the family piano sounding bright and wonderful after over 25 years without a service. A few persistent high and low notes that were really off key are sorted and my playing sounds better already.

Phil is a very pleasant man and did a wonderful job tuning my piano as well as pointing out a few faults that could also do with some work in the future. Highly recommended!

Thank you so much Phil for a really excellent job, very grateful indeed. I am like a child on Christmas morning. What a difference. pitch raised, tuning done. It’s like a classic Aston Martin found in a garage suddenly brought back to life by an expert. See you again in six months.

Phil is an extremely thorough and an absolutely consummate professional. His technical abilities coupled with his clear musical abilities means my gamble of buying a second-hand Bentley upright has paid off: all stuck keys are now working perfectly and the pitch and tune is phenomenally bright. Highly recommended.
