Our Specialty : Restoring Old World Craftsmanship


Prior to the era of production lines, craftsmen were building one musical instrument at a time, optimizing each step of the process, this allowed the best piano possible to be constructed from the given materials, also giving it a certain kind of individuality.

We are inspired by the pianos of Heintzman, Steinway, Bosendorfer, Mason & Hamlin, Knabe, Baldwin, Bechstein and Bluthner to name a few. The craftsmanship and construction of these pianos in the piano hey-day (1880 – 1930) in general far exceeds the craftsmanship of today’s pianos. These pianos, meticulously restored, often produce an instrument of quality unavailable on the new piano market today (also much more reasonably priced!).


 


Restoring a Piano


Over time, pianos naturally lose much of their original tone and lustre, resulting in a dull sound and appearance. Depending on the extent of the wear and damage, the piano may need a reconditioning or it may need to be restored or rebuilt. In either case, our skilled experts can refinish, restore, or rebuild most pianos, resulting in a sound and appearance that is often times better than the original.


Why fires and pianos don't mix


The following photos are of a piano that was nearly destroyed in a house fire. The body was heavily charred and the soundboard and many of the internal parts were damaged beyond repair.
