So watch this one. Some of the language is a bit colourful. Do you think this guy gets any calls for tuning??

I've seen this ad posted regularly for at least six months now, but I always thought it was a joke.

I'm suspicious because the tuning price is extremely low for NYC, and it's also difficult to believe that a tech would try to drum up business in this manner. But then again, it IS New York, and there are a ton of crazy people here who might be really into it.

Now I can excuse thinking that a 20th century piano is from 1850, but an electronic organ???

YIKES... even though he is almost certainly joking, I think I'd be really nervous having such a cretin touch my piano. All the techs I know are very polite and cultured. That kind of ad is absurd.
