Rebuilding and Remanufacturing

A complete line of service is available which allows us to do whatever is needed to bring a piano to optimum tone and structural condition. See our website page “Pianos We’ve Rebuilt” too.
We use the finest selection of pinblock and soundboard materials. We carefully fit our pinblocks, and we drill all tuning pin holes with cool compressed air on the drill bit.
We have resources for piano string scaling, which provide us with the ability to turn pianos with mediocre stringing scales into very good-sounding instruments.
With our pneumatic soundboard press we are able to build and install a new soundboard in any piano. Many pianos can no longer support a powerful, singing treble sound due to complete loss of soundboard crown. We can build and install a healthy, sonorous board for your piano.
Our action rebuilding department has access to all of the finest parts and techniques (see Action Restoration).
We use the highest quality stringing materials. We use International Gold Mapes treble wire, and our bass strings are custom manufactured by the premier bass string makers in North America (Mapes and Arledge).
As licensed Stanwood Precision TouchDesignTM installers, we are able to produce the highest level of keyboard performance (see “Action Restoration.”)
If you are considering trading in your Knabe, Mason and Hamlin, Baldwin, Chickering or Steinway grand (or other fine make), first give us an opportunity to evaluate it and provide you with a rebuilding estimate.
