These audio files were recorded with my phone a few minutes after tuning and made evaluation from somewhere other than at the piano at the time of the tuning, easy.  I’ve never seen a piano technician do this before, put their work out there for all to hear.   So I thought it might be fun and interesting to do it here.

Each recording is 3 – 4 minutes long and may include some extraneous noises (noisy pedaling, flubbed notes, a customer or two customers chiming in not knowing I was recording).

I start with some chords (Eb, Db, and Bb), then a snippet of a Beethoven Sonata in various permutations, which I find useful for aurally checking the treble tuning.  The last more, contemporary sampling, is good for aurally checking the overall sound/tuning of the piano from the very bottom to the very top.
