Santa Cruz Piano is owned by Jeffrey Potter, a full-time piano tuner/technician
since 1978. He sells and rents pianos as well as rebuilds, restores and of course
tunes pianos. He also is the Music Department staff employee technician at the
University of California, Santa Cruz, maintaining 70+ pianos, 4 harpsichords,
a fortepiano, a clavichord and virginals.
At his workshops, a collection of 16+ grand pianos and 25 or so upright pianos
are available for purchase or rent at all times, and of course he makes house
calls to tune and service privately owned pianos.
Jeff divides his time equally working each week, 20 hours for UCSC Music
Department, 20 hours of in-home service throughout the San Francisco Bay Area
and the Monterey Bay Area, and 20 hours at his home shop restoring, selling
and renting quality pianos. Yes that's 60 hours a week so apparently he's
still passionate about what he does for a living.
As piano stores continue to close and piano tuners are fewer each year,
he has found himself to be busier than he has ever been.
Jeff says, "My 40+ years in all aspects of this business continue to resonate
with my clients because everyone loves quality tuning, knowledgeable repair
service and one-stop shopping."
Please drop a line or give us a call with any questions you might have. Let's make
an appointment to have me visit your piano, or to arrange your visit to come
play some of my pianos, or both!
