When Should I replace all of my Pianos Strings?
A common sign that your piano strings have become old and warn is your piano constantly becomes out of tune. You may notice that you are having to use a piano tuning service far more regularly than in the past. This is a clear indication that it may be time for piano restringing! Any strings showing signs of rust or corrosion will not be delivering the correct performance, and will be susceptible to breaking. Corroded or loose tuning pins can also be a prime suspect in identifying the reason behind your regular piano tuning needs. A damaged or deteriorating sound board can also be the culprit!
