“Very professional, expert, pleasant and accommodating piano tuner. I would definitely use him again. He worked fast and well. Understood my concerns and addressed every one of them. A real find!” - Debra R.
“Don is talented, professional and fun to work with - and has a great ear. I am a Juilliard-trained musician with perfect pitch and so have struggled to find someone to care for and maintain my piano. Now that I've found Don, me and my piano are extremely happy; he's quite simply the best piano technician I've worked with since my conservatory days. I recommend him and his work highly.” - Cynthia L.
“Don took the piano action away for a couple of weeks and replaced felts, (very labor intensive), filed and shaped the hammers, and regulated and adjusted the action. Don is a perfectionist, very courteous and professional, and it was a pleasure to work with him as well as to play the piano after he was done transforming it. I have only praise for his work.” - Cameron G.
“Don's knowledge, skill and approach to the assessment of an instrument's flaws and potential inspire confidence in his ability to improve its action and sound. He is thoroughly professional in his manner and trustworthy in his judgment as well as a pleasure to work with.” - Judith P.
