Présentation de l'éditeur

If you have a note that has dropped in pitch, do you have to call in the tuner? A stuck key? Sympathetic rattle? Missing bridles? A broken hammer shank? An unglued ivory? The answer, in each case, is no: you can make all of these repairs yourself!
This is the clearest and most complete book available for beginning tuners and amateur pianists. It explains all the basic processes practically and with model clarity. A non-musician can use this book without too much difficulty.
You will learn how upright, grand, and square actions work, and how to take care of the smallest repairs — repairing stuck keys, poorly adjusted bottoms and capstans, crowded back checks, felts and leather on the hammers, hammer stems; softening damper and hammer felts; installing new bridles; eliminating "sympathetic rattle"; all with a minimum of tools and training.
You will learn a professional method of tuning based on slightly flattened fifths, where only the octave and the upward fifth intervals are used. This is one of the easiest systems to learn, one capable of a great deal of control, and one perfectly suited to adjusting one or two keys. It is a tested method especially right for amateurs working without a teacher, and a method that trains the ear for other recommended systems. The author also explains "beats," the theory of the tempered scale, and useful experiments you can make with harmonic phenomena.
If you want to experiment with tuning a piano, there is no better book to start with. It will help performers and teachers make occasional repairs and learn the structure and scale of the piano. Those who want to know how pianos work will find this book both clear and useful.

HASH(0x8a2f4eac) étoiles sur 5 A few good ideas, but outdated and misleading 29 décembre 1999
Par Ken Walker - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This probably was a good book in 1907, but too much has changed for it to be valuable now. The author's repeated references to square pianos, "international" vs. "concert" tuning frequencies, and tuning to C-517.3 are comically antiquated.
I appreciate a mathematical approach to tuning, but the discussions in chapters 8-14 are a clumsy attempt to explain concepts that someone with a decent mathematics and music background can easily calculate -- that the ratio between adjacent notes is the 12th root of 2; and that chord, interval, and beat relationships can be derived from that ratio. A modern calculator makes much of this book completely pointless.
The author's math sequences are cumbersome, and his conclusions are sometimes wrong. His beat frequency calculations are not always correct. The beat frequency of his C-128 to G-191.78 combination should be .44 Hz., not .66 as he calculates. A simpler and more correct way to calculate the beat frequency of a 5th interval is to subtract the 2nd harmonic (2 X 191.78) of the higher string from the 3rd harmonic of the lower (3 X 128).
The discussion on where/how to place mutes is helpful, as are the points about taking proper steps to ensure the validity of piano hardware before tuning. Also, the method of setting temperament by 5th and octave steps is useful.
In summary, if you have enough math and music experience to see through the dated material, the cumbersome derivations, and the false conclusions, this book gives a few helpful tips. I would not recommend it to most tuning amateurs, however.

HASH(0x8a3d1114) étoiles sur 5 So THAT'S how they do it! 10 août 2000
Par bill price - Publié sur
Format: Broché
I first read this book in 1973, after which I tuned--and tempered--a piano. What a kick! The book is old, but so are vibrations. I found the math to be un-necessary unless I chose to follow the author's logic or "play" with the figures. I recently re-read the book because I had forgotten the ideas behind "just" and "compromise" temperament. I found what I wanted, then continued to re-read the whole book again--though I skimmed over parts I remembered.
If you want to become a piano tuner, you should either apprentice with one, or take a mail-order course offered in a detective magazine. If you want to know how it's done--and might like to try tuning your old upright for the sheer joy of it--this is your book--but don't touch grandma's Steinway, okay?
Dover publishes a lot of old books, many of which have reverted to "public domain" and don't require royalty payments. That's no sin, and it's clearly reflected in their prices. As Will Shakespeare might say, "There are still a few old books worth reading." Thanks, Dover.

HASH(0x8a3d1354) étoiles sur 5 You can really do it! Learn how to tune a piano 10 septembre 2001
Par Claus Hetting - Publié sur
Format: Broché
This book is ancient, I think from the early 20th century, but still holds true and is an excellent and straight forward resource. As a pianist, it has been a revelation to understand how it is done, and even more fun to actually achieve a reasonable tuning myself (with a little help from my professional piano tuning friend.. OK, so I cheated a little...!). Highly recommended. To make life a little easier, I recommend getting a quality electronic (chromatic) tuner to tune the middle octave, after that use the octaves and 5ths to do the rest.
Full marks to Dover - again. They provide a great collection of classics on music, especially piano related stuff. I think I have perhaps 5-6 books by this publisher.

HASH(0x8a3d16b4) étoiles sur 5 This book, the tools, the APTuner app on my Iphone, and a few You Tube videos gave me the confidence to go ahead. You can too! 8 février 2015

This is a great place to start if you are considering tuning your own piano. This provides a good foundation, including attitude, piano repairs,
piano parts drawings, music theory, etc. Its written many years ago. I'd couple this purchase with the following however: If you have an IPhone
or even a computer, get the IPhone app: APTuner for about $5.00. You won't need an expensive $40 meter like I purchased if you do that.
I got my tool kit on amazon ...the #1 Rated Piano Tuning Kit by Miriam Song for about $35. Its "Good Enough" for the non-professional. The two things you need the most are the big handle to adjust the strings, and the little rubber sound dampers when you work on the strings that come in bunches. The other thing I recommend is to watch several videos on You Tube describing how to tune your own piano. From watching a number of these, it takes away the jitters and you just plunge in. Learning to figure out which string to attach your device to, and how to adjust the tone up or down to find the perfect match of "Zero" on Octove C3 is quite the challenge...but once you get the hang of it, the rest of the job is fairly
easy, if you are patient and willing to put in the time. Good luck and know that you'll appreciate your well tuned instrument much more after you've learned to keep it in tune yourself. A one time investment in tools and training will more than pay off with musical pleasure down the road.
Be intrepid. It isn't brain surgery!

HASH(0x8a3d1468) étoiles sur 5 Piano Tuning and repair, straight to the point 3 août 1998
Par Un client - Publié sur
Format: Broché
While I have not seen many other books about piano tuning, I was surprised how this book always comes straight to the point. It covers not only how to tune a piano, but also how a piano works (upright and grand), how to repair it and the theory of temprament.
The book has originally been written in 1907 for people who wanted to become piano tuner. In the recent edition, however, they removed the chapters on Business Hints and Charges :-)
If you own a piano and you want to maintain it yourself, this book is for you.
