Each owner of an instrument asks this question sooner or later, because a fairly regular game knocks his system in a year; after the same time, the setup becomes literally necessary. In general, the longer you put it off, the worse for the instrument itself. Piano tuning is certainly a must. The point here is not only an aesthetic moment, but also a pragmatic one.
