Thanks for your question. My name is John. Welcome to JustAnswer, it will be my pleasure to help you. I can work on this for you with just a little more information.

Approximately when was your piano last tuned?

What is the full height of your piano measured from the floor to the top of the closed top lid please?

You mentioned that it needs some tlc, do you know if any of the internal mechanics may have been replaced or restored in the past or is it all still as originally built?
