Piano Restoration in the Twin Cities

Piano restoration can be defined as minor reconditioning to a total rebuild. Overhaul needs are determined by the piano brand, model, size, age, past care, and current condition. Most of the pianos I see in the 15-30 year old age group need reconditioning on some level, utilizing existing parts. This process would involve a thorough cleaning, complete action regulation, voicing, and tuning. A much older piano of higher quality may also benefit from string replacement, a new pinblock, soundboard work, action part replacements, and refinishing of the cabinet. Only a thorough evaluation by a professional technician can reveal your piano’s real needs
