Actually, the piezo was connected as the resonating part of the oscillator
(through a transformer to increase voltage).
So, no tuning was needed, just some start-up and power optimization.
If I remember correct (it was 15 years ago), the original design was based
on the simple two-transistor classic bistable design, with the primary
transformer winding connected between the collectors.
