As I am a piano tuner and not a salesperson I tend to out tuning and servicing customers' pianos in their homes for much of my time. It is therefore necessary to make an appointment to view pianos.

Please phone on 06 8445 312  or  021 254 8083 for an appointment to view pianos.   Evenings and weekends are usually not a problem.
