Not all pianos require a full restoration, a piano case may only require a detailing rather than be completely refinished, or a modern piano in a school hall may only need strings, hammers and keyboard felts replaced to bring it back to the required performance level.
The process of your tailored restoration starts with a thorough inspection of the instrument. We then discuss all of the possibilities for your piano and your expectations, then come up with a plan for the restoration. What will be replaced, what will be repaired and what will be reconditioned or left as it is. Where appropriate and possible we can redesign or modify the piano design to improve performance.
From this information, a comprehensive quote and timescale is provided. Once it is agreed to, the carrier picks up your piano and work commences in my fully equipped restoration workshop.
