An example of how not to do repair

I see a lot of attempted repairs. It becomes obvious which tuner/tech has been trained properly and who has not. This one takes the cake.

the last tuner broke all three strings on a note (there are three strings per note) and moved the right side string from the note below over to have it go across to the missing strings.
if that wasn’t bad enough, he/she has no idea how to properly tie it off at the hitch.

I was a little worried to leave my business card in the piano for fear that the next tuner will think I did this hack job.
