Our faithful piano technician, Clyde. He has been tuning our Yamaha studio upright piano for 37 years. The harsh light at the upper left of the piano frame is his work lamp. In recent years he has begun to use electronic tuning devices AND reliance on his amazing ear.

    If you get a keyboard, you could eliminate all that>>>>JUST JOKING! There's nothing like a real piano. That's for sure. But I'll tell you, Mike Renzi sure sounds good on his keyboard!

    It takes a real gift of tone sensitivity to do this. How wonderful that you have employed him for so long. A great shot of a man at work.

    Wonderful that you have a faithful technician ...I always remember the man that used to keep my mother's piano in tune at the homeplace.. He became blind from an accident when he was a young boy but he made up for his blindness with his keen sense of hearing..
