Reconditioning and Rebuilding

Bay Area pianists and piano technicians agree: there is no finer restoration work being done in Northern California than at our workshop on Ferry Point in Alameda.

We specialize in Steinway Grand restoration as well as Mason & Hamlin, Baldwin, and other fine makes. The process begins with an in home estimate to evaluate the different ways to bring out the most in your instrument. A visit to the workshop follows where the intricacies of the restoration process are demonstrated and explained.

An opportunity to play a completed instrument is always available. Feeling and hearing our finished product is what convinces our clients to trust us with their most prized possession. Here is what our clients say about the rebuilding process. Click here to visit the Piano Technician's Guild website for more information.
