After deciding to tune my old piano on my own I first tried a low-budget solution from Amazon. The hammer did not exactly transmit my movements to the tuning screws of the piano and the results where therefore kind of poor and frustrating.
After switching to the K&M device even I could create an accceptable tuning for my piano.
The pro's will go for pro quality anyway, if you are a do-it-yourself guy like me, go at least for the K&M 167 or coonsider even more high end tools and avoid saving money here. You'll pay the price later with bad results, more frustration, wasted time, or buying a second device later.
If you are a beginner, make sure to order also the required muting tools (felt, wedges, ...).

Good tool

I bought it as an amateur piano player to tune the occasional out-of-tune string on my upright Kawai. The tool is of good quality and will do the job if you’re not a demanding professional, in which case I’d imagine you’d be looking for something more expensive. Not that you couldn’t do the full tuning with it - I did just that on several occasions, I’m just saying that pros have their own specialty tools. I showed it to my piano tuning professional, and he didn’t have anything against me doing it on my own.

An ok piano tuning hammer
kitarist 14.05.2020
I our house piano rolls for at least 6-8 hours a day. Son is studying piano at highest level and piano is stressed. Time to time also strings broke and after a new string is installed it has to be adjusted / tuned till it settles down. This is why I bought this hammer.
Hammer has proper adapter for Yamaha piano tuning pegs, but is not precise like I wanted to. Also hammer is not rock stable when tuning. But for the one or two keys tuning is just fine.
For full piano tuning I would recommend a pro tuning hammer.

Excellent for older piano's

Great tool, decent quality. The smaller head fits older piano's tuning pins well. Get this one instead of K&M 166 if you're in doubt (also see my review of K&M 166), it's way better. Heads appear harder and fit the pins better.
