“Jim McGehee is one of the most talented piano technicians I have ever met. We have a Fazioli 308, 10’2″ concert grand in our recording studio and we trusted Jim to do voicing and regulation. This is a $250,000 piano, and the stakes were quite high when changing the voicing and feel. Jim performed the work beautifully, and under budget! We would never consider doing this work to such a fine piano if there wasn’t someone of Jim’s skill and expertise at the helm. Anyone who is considering any service to their pianos should call Jim first without question or delay.” Eric Chesher, Infra Red Studios, North Little Rock

“It is such a privilege to play on a “Grossman prepared piano”
…I wish it could be a regular experience.” Nelita True, concert pianist and recording artist
“I can hereby confirm that Jim McGehee has been our chief piano technician over a period for the last 10 years. His skill and artistic caring for the instruments of The Royal Danish Theater and The Royal Danish Orchestra, both the daily servicing and the concert work, have been exemplary. We give him our highest recommendation” Klas Sjobnlom, director Royal Danish Theater, Copenhagen, Denmark

“It is a pleasure for me to pass on my warmest recommendations for piano technician Jim McGehee. He has for the last 10 years been responsible for the tuning of the pianos of the Academy including our grand pianos used for Academy concerts. He is highly skilled also in the art of intonation of pianos in which field he can achieve small miracles! I am convinced that any professional venue or institution being dependent on well-functioning pianos can gain from his work.” Steen Pade, Principal of The Royal Danish Academy of Music, Copenhagen, Denmark

“I met Jim McGehee in Copenhagen when I was there accompanying a recital with Dame Margaret Price. I was very impressed with his work at the time and, as I know how rare fine piano technicians are in the U.S., particularly those with experience in dealing with Steinway pianos. I recommend Mr. McGehee highly.” Graham R. Johnson, pianist, London

” The piano is beautiful.”
Claude Frank, concert pianist & recording artist

“The piano is just gorgeous.”
Lee Luvisi, concert pianist & recording artist

“Thanks for that terrific piano”
Barbara Nissman, concert pianist and recording artist

“Our 1924 Steinway A grand piano is a family treasure. Jim McGehee tuned it beautifully. He is a thorough, knowledgeable professional. Jim will take all the time needed to care for your piano and we recommend him highly!” J. & L. G., Little Rock

” I’ve had trouble finding a professional tuner for my Steinway. I am so impressed with Jim, and so relieved to have found him. Y’know how your car drives better right after a car wash? That’s how my piano plays now! P. M., Little Rock

Jim McGehee replaced the pin block, pins, and strings, refinished the sound board and plate of my 60 year-old Steinway B. Additionally, Jim who is a superb technician made some voicing and action adjustments so that the piano now plays, sounds, and looks great…the tuning is now as stable as a new piano. It is truly a pleasure to play.” C. H., Little Rock

“Jim McGehee has taken care of my piano since 1998. He has regulated, voiced it, replaced the hammers last summer and re-regulated again, plus regular tunings. He has made all the difference in my piano. My students and musician friends love it now and so do I. I recommend him highly. He is always professional and quick to respond when I call with any piano problem.”
M. E., Little Rock
