Thanks for your question. My name is***** will be a pleasure to help you. I will ask you to complete the star rating and payment process after I have completed the question for you.

Prior to the recent tuning, was your piano regularly tuned and maintained? Were all of the key tops replaced and re-felted or were the hammers and dampers re-felted and when was this completed please? If you have any pictures showing the internal parts and the keys, which you could attach on here with the paperclip on the menu bar, that would be very helpful.

Just checking back with you to see if you managed to take any photos of your piano, particularly of the internal mechanics, to send to me as discussed. Thank you.
