I bought a super-nice-super-cheap-chinese-piano off of CL. It had never been tuned, or played, since purchased new in 1986. Scratched by the kids and kept in a corner. My tuner decided to tune it to A439.3 for two reasons:
1. Fear of breaking the soundboard.
2. It would never stay anyway.
His advice? Play it. Beat the crap out of it. Play it as often as you can for 6 months... and I'll come back and tune it to A440.
This is one of those sessions, recorded @ 5:45 a.m. before heading to Church. Wake up!

Hmm…it looks like things are taking a while to load. Try again?
