"Ralph (Poe) Thomas has been my piano tuner since a friend referred him to me. His professional integrity and honesty are what impress me the most. He is genuine, something we don't find too much today. He will give you facts and figures, if needed, before a job begins. Being a music teacher I want the best for my piano and my students, so I refer him. He is pleasant and cordial to talk to and never in a hurry. I recommend him to everyone." D. Kosick

Mr. Thomas's professional expertise, integrity, courteous service, and genuine love for the instrument is apparent with each and every piano he services and tunes. I love the work he's done with my piano." KS
