An incredible transformation. This 1912 Kimball pneumatic player was a disaster when we first met it. The pneumatic player system was an early design that never worked very well, and parts were missing to boot. The piano itself was also in bad condition; the bass wall simply fell off in our shop. The customer had us upgrade it to a new digital player system from QRS during the restoration. The results were fantastic. The piano sounds as good as it did when new, the rust and mold is all gone, and the digital player operates better than the original system ever did. The owners were pleased beyond words, and we were very happy to have been able to transform the piano in to something truly special for them!

Our most recent project, restoring a 1924 Adam Schaaf piano. It was previously a pneumatic-player piano that accepted rolls, but that mechanism was in terrible condition from extensive moisture/water damage. So at the customer's request, during the restoration we installed a new digital QRS PNOmation3 player system. It looks, sounds, and plays better than ever, and we delivered it safe and sound yesterday!

More photos of the restoration work on a 1910 Wegman upright, built in Auburn, NY. Photos of cleaning work on the keybed, the Patented Wegman tuning pins before and after corrosion removal, etc. Once it receives the new QRS PNOmation3 system, this piano will not only be "as good as new", it will be incredible, a true piece of both art and history!

This month's project: the complete restoration of a Wegman upright, made locally in Auburn, NY. Wegman made very high quality pianos with a special tuning pin that did not enter a pin block.

The restoration includes removing thick coats of paint from every square inch of the outside cabinet, and applying our new hand-rubbed finish. Once the piano itself is perfect, it will be fitted with a new digital QRS PNOmation player system. It will look and sound better than ever! Make sure to contact us for information on fixing your piano and installing a new digital player system, and stay tuned for more pictures of this project!

Today's project: tuning the 1909 Steinway grand at a nearby school in preparation for the students' performance Friday evening. This piano sounds amazing in the auditorium!

This piano recently came in to our shop for a full restoration. It is a special Apollo player piano known as an "Apollo-phone". What made this piano so special? Between rolls, you could keep your guests entertained by playing a record on the built-in gramophone! Unfortunately, someone has removed the gramophone in the years since the piano was built.

How bad is your piano's condition? As long as the bones are there, we can make nearly any piano look and sound like new, as these before and after shots of a 1911 Kroeger upright we recently restored show.

Something very special is coming soon...! We are currently restoring a 1919 Lindeman player piano for a customer, but there is going to be a twist that you'll have to see (and hear) to believe! Stay tuned!
