I've done a ton of tuning 2 or more pianos together for recitals or recordings. I usually tune 5 together for the SEPF Gala opening concert every June, but I'm fortunate to not have to do this again, hopefully. That's a bear where I tune as best I can and have another tech come in to help when the stage is set.
Question: How do you all go about this?
With just 2 identical pianos is easier than more than 2: tune the 2 at A440 and then compare where I may have not done so correctly. (This is if there are 2 identical Steinway D's or something like that) Sometimes the pianos are spread apart in age and don't always like each other from design changes over the years.
How about more than 2? Different sizes or brands? When stage is set and they need the 2 nestled together end to end. I have some coming up and need some advise, please?. Or one is lid off with light prepared stuffs? (we don't allow crazy Cage stuffs) They can bring in their own pianos for that!
Thanks in advance,
