The piano tuning and repair industry is a very niche-based industry. However, we try to keep prices affordable for everyone. If you keep your piano tuned, then prices will be more affordable. However, if it has been several years since your piano has been tuned, then it may require more work to get it pitched correctly. Travel: Sometimes, travel is required more in the state of Maine. I do charge for traveling long distances. However, my traveling fees are very reasonable. I will do everything possible to make traveling expenses affordable for you. The cities I do the piano repair in include Waterville, Augusta, Bangor, and Portland. Steve Cates's piano repair cities include Waterville, Augusta, Bangor, and Portland.
