Welcome to the official portal for Tunewerk Precision Piano in Boston, Mass. Our focus is performance
optimization for the modern grand piano, informed by research and backed by applied math and engineering.
As a small artisan shop, we offer a quality and uncompromising dedication that you will not find elsewhere.

What is the mathematical relationship that drives ideal tuning in 12-TET? This problem has been unsolved
and/or partially solved for over a hundred years. What are the ideal parameters of voicing and regulation
that can deliver tone and control not even found in factory-new instruments? We have these solutions.

unity of tone through applied research

Serving the local MBTA accessible Boston area, NY and DC by appointment.

Please stay tuned as the organic evolution of this site takes place. We have many projects
underway for the development of the site but our primary focus is work integrity.

Concert and high precision work is rated at $90/hr., standard field service at $45/hr., and shop work at $30/hr.

A $50 service fee applies to all initial 3-hour block appointments. This usually includes a complete aural tuning,
as well as 1+ hr. of necessary repair work and problem diagnosis. Time after that block is rated as written above.
This is structured to maximize the ease and benefit to the customer, so that no extra charges need be incurred for
the standard appointment, during which there are always things besides tuning that need to be attended to.
