GUEST,Pete Sumner instruments drift sharp (31) RE: instruments drift sharp 31 May 06

You might want to consider humidity more that the temperature...
In the piano field, which is my forte (pardon the pun), it is that factor above all others that has an effect on pitch.
Bridges lengthen and soundboards expand in humid weather thus sending the instrument sharp..I loved it in LA when the Santa Anna winds blew..sent all the pianos flat as the humidity dropped....Ooooops.....

Hope that helps
