Who's the Daddy?

Post by Openwood » 09 Mar 2009, 07:53

The Grauniad recently did an article on Ulrich Gerhartz which implied he was Top Dog in the piano technician world. Is that so? If so, who are best of the rest (top 5, for example)?

Moi?
Our mission in life is to tune customers--not pianos.

Any fool can make a piano-- it needs a tuner to put the music in it

Ulrich Gerhartz was on Midweek on Radio 4 on Wednesday 25th Feb, you can still listen to the program if you follow this link:

Herr King of the Kemble-Kaiser Meister, is a very close second to Mr Gerhartz.

You can hear an interview with him that was made after 8 pints of lager at his local last Friday. .

We apoligise for the slurred speech and any referance made to discounting piano dealers in the South.
