What is Restoration

Restoration is the art of transforming older, worn-out traditional pianos to their original glory. All the age-affected felts, leatherwork, springs, loops, centre-pins, wrestpins and strings are renewed., to enable the instrument to perform as well as when it originally left the factory.

What work is carried out?

In a typical restoration we will do all of the following:

  • Restore the soundboard
  • Restring and replace the tuning pins
  • Restore/rebuild the action/keyboard/damper assembly
  • Strip down and repolish the cabinet
  • Raise to pitch and fine tune to A-440
  • Extensively regulate the touch and damping
  • Overhaul the pedal assembly

Is my piano worth restoring?

It is worth restoring if it is soundly built, if possible by a well-known maker, built after 1890 and, importantly, you like the instrument. It is also desirable for it to be overstrung (although some straight-strungs can be good pianos).
