What is a registered Tuner/Technician?
A registered Tuner or Technician is a Member of the PTA who is listed in the PTA register. Registered Members can be found in the ‘Find a Tuner’ section of this website.
Why should I use a Tuner who is a Member of the PTA?
Since 1975 PTA Members have to pass a three-part examination to demonstrate their capability to carry out tuning and repairs to a very high standard. Technicians are similarly qualified for rebuilding, major overhaul, string making, action design or other aspects of the piano industry.
