I have a barely-played 1972 Wurlitzer piano which I believe was tuned only once in 1980.
Is it possible to have it tuned properly at this point, or is it beyond the point of no return?
Watch Dr. Flugel, (aka John Ross Wilson RPT) from Flugelbauer Piano Supply, notch a piano bridge to perfection–WARNING–don’t try this at home.
This is very generous from Mr. Wilson. He gives us permission to enter his shop.
Notice he does a first “rough” run with a powered sanding tool and finishes with a last run with the power tool but with more precision. Also at the end, he uses a wood chisel to finish by hand.
Building a piano bridge is a very delicate work. Keep in mind that Mr. Wilson is cutting out from rock solid maple wood. His cutting chisel must be perfectly sharpened.
Thanks Mr. Wilson.

Fundamentals of fine tuning during piano tuning
I’m not asking how often I SHOULD, I know how often I should… But I’m more wondering how often you tune yours?
Mine sat in a storage until for about 12 years until I bought it and moved it in to my home. To my shock it was still almost in tune and didn’t require a drop tune.
Anyway, I’ve been slacking on the tunes and am considering waiting until spring to tune it again.
How long do you go between tunes?
Holy crow!!!! 54 and 86??? And I thought I was slacking.
I have no idea how long mine went without being tuned before it ended up in the storage unit. There was no service card. But I think it was well cared for because it belonged to a music teacher.
