“I’ve benefited from the privilege of Fred’s tuning for many of my Boston-Area appearances. In addition to having the talent and experience to achieve superb intonation from well-weathered “club” pianos, Fred’s a groove to work with – easy for artists to talk to. Without hesitation, I give Fred Mudge my highest recommendation for any facet of piano tech work.”
