You're very right, Eric. Everybody wonders how we can stand the noise we make tuning pianos, and do the same thing day in day out. And as you lay in bed, you still analyze how to tackle pin torque and string stability.

We LOVE what we're doing, that's why.

You know you haven't even made it to the level of Tooner when you take on a project of "restoring" a high end 19th century piano with little knowledge and no previous experience in these matters. Oh well, the Reblitz book and advice from the guy behind the counter at the hardware store will see you through...

...if you say "Bye" to your client at least 3 times: first, near the piano after tuning, second, while walking towards the door, and third, when you're already outside the door just before the client shuts it.
