Depends on the quality of the technician and the years of experience like with any field. I know of one tech that charges $180 + for the tuning alone.

Most technicians do not include pitch raises or repairs. Pitch raises take longer and have nothing to do with the actual tuning of the piano itself. The piano must be brought up or, lowered to, concert pitch before the actual tuning can take place.

Repairs also have nothing to do with tuning. An average tuning takes about 1 to 1. 5 hours for most tuners.

AnswerThe going price here in the Bangor area of Maine is about $100. The time it takes is at least 2 hours which includes minor adjustments, simple cleaning, and lubrication. There are added charges if there is a repair such as a broken string, replacement of saddle straps, or trimming of dampers that may be buzzing.

Answer

Here in Los Angeles, I charge between $75 and $125 depending on how bad the piano is and how long it's been since it was tuned last. Please tune your piano at least once a year. Manufactures recommend twice a year. MasterTuner.com
