The Goldilocks Zone - BEN GAC, Technical Trainer, Steinway & Sons
The "Goldilocks Zone" tuning method utilizes a simple, specific test and check pattern that enables the aural tuner to easily place notes quickly and precisely throughout the piano when tuning. By following the process of identifying neighboring intervals which are faster and slower, optimize the temperament and stretch so it sits in the Goldilocks Zone, leaving the piano singing sonorously. There's nothing complicated about it; the method utilizes the aural checks that you already know and use. Discussion about the advantages of tuning the unisons as you go will also be covered.
