Although it is not a problem to bring the piano back to pitch the crown on the oth ... View Profile

Do digital or electric pianos need tuning?

Digital or electric pianos never require tuning. The sounds produced by a digital or electric piano are recorded and stored, so they never go out of tune.

When you don't tune a piano, the string tension is reduced and the pitch drops. Regular piano tuning keeps it in better condition, helps maintain its value, and is easier to tune in the future. By delaying tuning, it's more expensive and time-consuming to get the piano back into tune.
