But I do tune pianos. So if you get to my site looking for a hair cut and realize you are at the wro...

If you own a spinet piano, you most likely have what is called a drop action. That means that the bottom part of your action goes deep into the piano below the keyboard. At the end of your piano's keys, back where you can't see it without the fall board removed (the part that you can close over ...

When the news of COVID-19 began to spread, my wife, Nancy, made some masks for us. The two pictured above are the ones I have adopted. I am eager for the day when the powers that be will lift that requirement. In the meantime, please don't feel awkward when I come into your home with one of these...

I have been back on the tuning circuit for about four weeks now. Before I restarted I called the Colorado Springs Department of Health to make sure I was understanding correctly that I could begin again. They said yes but to be sure to wear a mask and practice social distancing. That is what I am...

The best! It may be a bit much to uncover and cover your piano each time you play it, but you might want to consider getting a piano cover to keep on your instrument overnight, or while you are on vacation. These are great for churches and other places where pianos are not used every day. They c...

Good! This grand piano is protected from dust and other stuff in its environment. Copper wound bass strings are particularly vulnerable to dust. As dust accumulates on these strings, it becomes embedded in their windings and actually changes the robust tone quality of the strings into a dull, co...

Mr. Barber did an excellent job of fixing a jack on my piano as well as a sticky key. He was very knowledgeable, kind, and helpful. Affordable rates. The highest quality piano repair services I have found so far in Colorado Springs. I highly recommend his services for your piano needs.

Mr. Barber did a fantastic job tuning our piano. It has been many years since our piano had been tuned and now it sounds beautiful! He helped me figure out why a couple of keys were sticking (a rather large nut had slipped down and gotten stuck under the keys after one of our moves!). He was very detail orientated, polite and very respectful while at my home. I will definitely continue to have him tune our piano!
