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!
