Hi everyone. I'm on the lookout for a used upright, and once I find one I'll want to have a tech check it out to make sure it's in good order. Does anyone have any specific technicians in the NYC area that they'd recommend?

I got in touch with Dan but unfortunately he doesn't service Queens. Do you have any other recommendations? I'm also looking for a tech who could inspect a piano in NJ.

I know Dan only by reputation. And don’t live in your area, so I don’t have any personal recommendations. If you ask on the Piano sub-forum, or some of the others you may get some recommendations because there are multiple posters who do live in the NYC metro area.

Did you ask Dan for a recommendation?

You might try Supreme Pianos. I do not know them through personal experience, but I work with the owner's brother from time to time, and another friend who was married to a pianist thinks well of him. (I guess we all would have been classmates if my family did not have to move from Berkeley.) He seems to have excellent credentials, and ties to technicians in the area.

You could also contact Donald Trump to find out who tunes for Trump Tower. I’m sure whoever the tuner is, they will do it under budget and in half the time.
