Repairs and Rebuilding

Repairs

Basic repairs such as fixing a note that doesn't work, or replacing some parts can be done right in the home.  Broken or missing strings can be replaced and most small problems can be resolved without a lot of expense.

Sometimes repairs are more extensive and require the work to be done in the shop.  Here is an example of a badly cracked bridge that needs to be recapped.

















Rebuilding

When pianos that are magnificent instruments get old and worn out it is necessary to completely rebuild them. The life of the instrument when it was in all it's glory can be restored so it is often worth the time and expense. 

This is where the piano goes to the shop and undergoes a complete operation.  All the old parts are removed.  The cast iron plate that supports the 20 tons of tension is removed.  The piano is refinished (customer option). The pin block is replaced, sound board repaired (if necessary), bridges are recapped (if necessary), new strings and tuning pins are installed.  The action parts are replaced and the piano is regulated and voiced and the glory days of the instrument are once again alive.

If you need to have an instrument that needs repairs or a complete restoration, call for an appointment and estimate today.
