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 (click here to learn the difference between the two). 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.

Witness the following photos, an extreme example of our abilities.
