As one of our regular restorations, pianos are beautiful instruments with an internal complexity that allows for its large range of notes. Enclosed in a timber case of assorted finishes, owning a piano requires regular maintenance to stay tuned.
The internal arrangement of strings and hammers inside the piano is very sensitive and can be damaged just by bad handling, making it one of the priorities to monitor when restoring & transporting. Over time these same components can become aged, causing them to become weakened, kinked or worn. Especially for antique pianos, it is times like these we would offer replacement parts such as strings, felts, leathers, cloths, and hammers. For deterioration that requires more than just replacement parts, we also offer extensive repairs or structural work such as bridge or soundboard rebuilding.
Always finished with a final retune, we can have your piano playing beautiful music again.
Focusing on the casing, many of todays pianos are a work of art by themselves. Considering one of the most iconic pianos being the 1927 upright Kohler & Campbell from the film Casablanca (1942), this decorative piece is illustrated with symmetrical Moroccan designs on all the paneling and stool. Ever since this, pianos have become more embellished including decorative features such as wood carvings, gilding, high gloss finishes & marquetry. From antique uprights to concert grands, our craftsmen will revive your piano to look as stunning as it sounds.
