Allow me to introduce myself. My name is John Douglass, piano technician for JD Piano Service. 2016 marks my 40th year tuning pianos. I learned the trade from my father William at an early age, developing my skills working in the family business; Douglass Pianos. My experience comes not only from working on pianos but also from retail sales presentations and relationships with many piano manufacturers. This gives me a unique perspective and knowledge of the entire piano industry compared to other piano technicians.
The Douglass family has been involved in pianos since 1920. In addition to tuning pianos in customer's homes, working with my father at Douglass Pianos provided me invaluable experience working on many different brands both new and used. From preparing brand new pianos right out of the box to rebuilding and reconditioning older ones I was able to gain many years of hands-on experience working on pianos of every brand, size, type and state of condition. I've been around pianos since I was a young boy and have literally tuned thousands of pianos in my lifetime!
