My name is David Mainesmith, and I own Artistic Piano Tuning. I am a RPT certified piano tuner and a graduate of Randy Potter School of Piano Technology, where I completed studies in piano tuning, repairing, and regulating, as well as in ethical business practices. I am also a member of the Piano Technicians Guild, and I have passed the RPT written, technical, grand regulation, vertical regulation and repair exams. I started Artistic Piano Tuning in 2006.
I have been involved in technical work for over fifty years, beginning in the US Air Force repairing radar systems. After my military service, I spent over thirty years as a field engineer working on mainframe computers, data and telecommunication equipment. My interest in piano work began while working in 2002. I have been in business for ten years, successfully servicing thousands of pianos of all types and brands - everything from Steinway grand pianos to spinets. My background in math and science has helped me to understand the physics, mechanics, engineering, and science related to sound and pianos technology.
