I've got Dirk's Piano Tuner few months ago. I am tuning my 218cm piano regularly with it now and I must say my piano was newer tuned better. Much better than tunings of my professional tuner.
Dirk's stretched tuning simply sounds amazing. You will have to adapt your ears to slightly wide thirds, but the fifths are more close to pure. The tuner itself is very simple to use and very precise. For nearly thirty years I was frustrated with most of the time out of tune piano, which is I think, the serious problem of all the sensitive piano players. Now it takes me four hours every month or so, and I am more happy than ever.
One month ago, I've tuned my friend's almost new Steinway D, and he was totally impressed.
I recommend the Dirk's Tuner to every pianist, who has some ability to handle the tuning hammer or has will to learn how to use it (I recommend a good quality carbon hammer). It will make your life much much better.
Go on Dirk! Thank you!

I'm in the process of getting familiar with this tool, and it strikes me how simple and extremely intuitive it is. In my mind anyone could tune a piano with this tool and a maximum of two thumbs!

I will report back when I'm done tuning the whole piano!

I have been using Dirk's Piano Tuner since late 2014. I have tuned my Steinway B six or maybe seven times with it. I was amazed the first time I used it and, frankly, remain so now. My tuning technique has improved dramatically and I can now tune the whole piano in two hours, plus 15-20 minutes setup time (setting temperament strips, etc.) I strongly recommend an external mic All in all I can strongly recommend this product.

Dirk's piano tuning software is by far the best designed, best executed, and easiest to use piece of programming I have ever encountered. Keep up the good work Dirk!

I use this to tune pianos for myself and a few relatives. It does a real nice job. I use to do it by ear, which was too frustrating for me. I am much happier using this program.

Dear Reader,

I tune my own pianos since 1974 with the help of several tuning divices.
Summer 2015 I was looking for a better tuning device because the built-in stretching of my old device was not satisfying any more. I bought Dirk's tuning device.
Result: my instruments sound SUPER; better than ever before !!!
Highly recommended !

Cheers to Dirk and Ben for the development of this incredible tool !

Many thanks,

I found this program on the Internet in early 2012 and tested a bit on my piano. It seemed easy to make a tuning so I decided to buy to be able to test the program completely.
After some problems in the beginning, which Dirk quickly helped to fix, I now use the program at any tuning. My laptop recently crashed so I had to get help with the installation of the software on the new laptop. Dirk was, as always, quick with support. The program is highly recommended and Dirk's support is outstanding.

I bought Dirk's piano tuner last year. I have been tuning pianos for twelve years and was never sold on a etd. Dirk's was recommended by a tuner friend who had had good results. I was shocked with the results. It really is as close to a good tuners ear as you can imagine. Very easy to use aswell. Makes pitch raising a treat. I had a problem with my laptop when I downloaded it. Dirk helped me through the process of installing the software. Great service.

I've used this software twice now to tune my piano, and the results have been great. The program is very easy to use. On top of that, I needed to transfer the program from an old computer to a new one, and immediately received assistance from Dirk on the process. Thank you!

Wow, wow, wow!!! Dirk's Piano Tuner software and its results are just amazing. It took three days (about 16 hours in total) in August 2015 to tune the "family" piano (from about 1879, P. van Ooij, pianomaker and tuner, Haarlem, the Netherlands) ... very carefully ... step-by-step: the piano had been tuned twice in the last 25 years. The last tuning dates back more than 15 years ago (in Nov/Dec 1999), and was done professionally. However, it was a "relative" tuning (with respect to the A4 that was well below 440Hz! ... the A4 had almost become a G#4, about 415Hz). In those 16 hours, with the help of Dirk's Piano Tuner, I determined first the temperament and the optimal stretch that belongs to this piano. Subsequently, I brought the relative tuning up to an absolute tuning (as said, very carefully ... in small incremental steps). The piano produces now a sound as I hardly can remember it. The improvement of the quality of sound is, I think, mainly due the optimal temperament/stretch that may have never been determined so optimally (at least not in my lifetime of almost 68 years). Dirk's Piano Tuner is a very well-designed tool that brings affordable tuning within reach of every piano owner/player. A professional tuner would have had to come to our house may be four/five times (superseding easily the cost of Dirk's Piano Tuning software). THE SOUND OF OUR PIANO IS SO "GRAND" AGAIN!!! I recommend the software to anyone! Boudewijn PS: Questions? My experience: support by Dirk is virtually instantaneous!
