Since 1995

Celebrating 29 Years of "That Tuning Guy"!

For Fastest Service


Scott Kerns is

"That Tuning Guy"

Tuning & Repairing

pianos in Lincoln, NE &

the surrounding area

When you hire a piano tuner you expect your piano to sound better when they leave right? That, of course, is my main goal, but I try to do it in a friendly and efficient manner. I also can make repairs and adjustments that your piano needs. I suppose there are lots of other things I could tell you about what I do, but it's really pretty boring. The bottom line is that I like to make pianos sound better! I've been doing that since 1995 and I'd love to tune your piano for you!

1. Email: 

This is the best way to contact me and set a day and time for the tuning. 

2. Text or Call: 531-333-2428

PLEASE NOTE: I screen ALL of my calls, which means I very rarely answer my phone. That may seem odd, but to keep on schedule I don't have time to answer calls during the day. So, if you do call please leave me a voicemail or better yet, send me a text. Thanks!

My basic fee is $150.00 for pianos under 48" tall and $180.00 for pianos over 48" tall. My pitch correction fee is $60.00 (All fees include sales tax). What's a pitch correction? That means that the overall pitch of the piano is so low or high that one tuning will not be enough for the tuning to be reasonably stable so I'll do a rough tuning to get it basically on pitch and then go through again and fine tune it. There are some severe cases when even two tunings are not enough. If I have to return to tune the piano again I need to charge my regular tuning fee for that visit. Go to the "A440 Pitch Source" page to try and see if you need a pitch raise or go my YouTube video here for instructions on how to send me a recording so I can check the pitch.

PLEASE NOTE: I don't tune square grands and I no longer tune old player pianos that use the rolls. 

TYPES OF PAYMENT ACCEPTED ARE: Check, Venmo, PayPal, Credit Card & Cash.

Please email or text for availability and more information.

(I reserve the right, however, to change my fee without notice.)
