We restored this 1874 Steinway square grand piano almost 35 years ago, and the action has come back to the shop for a refresh and regulation.

There are very few of these pieces of history left today. Although their tone is not as crisp or loud as a large grand or upright, they are truly a piece of piano history and should always be preserved or restored when that is possible. #piano #pianotechnician #pianorestoration #piano🎹 #pianos #pianomusic

Kicking off 2020 on the right foot here at Accutone! The 1926 Haines Brothers and the 1939 Sterling grand both went home this week. The Sterling was fully restored and had a new QRS PNOmation3 player system added to it, and it had a brilliant tone! It was a real treat to see the customer's reaction when both of his newly-restored grand pianos were set up and started playing simultaneously! #piano #pianotechnician #pianorestoration #pianotuning #piano🎹 #pianos

The completed 1930 Hallet, Davis & Co baby grand. The piano received a true makeover during the restoration, including all new hammers, and upon completion both looked and sounded brilliant!

This 1930 Hallet, Davis & Co. baby grand piano was in a shocking state when it showed up at our shop. The hammers were ground down to "flat-tops", the sharp keys were worn down to the wood, and the interior was filled with what looked like plaster dust. She went home this morning. How did she turn out? Watch for our next post to see! #piano #pianos #pianotechnician #pianorestoration #pianotuning #piano🎹

The finished results on the 1903 Stuyvesant restoration! This piano went out for delivery to the State of Washington today, perhaps the furthest one of our restored instruments has gone during our 40+ years in this work. It looks brand new, and sounds *amazing*. It is ready for another 115-odd years of making beautiful music!

This 1903 Stuyvesant upright was built to a very high standard, but was in very, very bad condition when it came in to our shop. The effects of a rodent civilization within its innards can clearly be seen in these photos. The piano had been suffering from many issues for a very long time, and was all but ready for the scrap heap.

How did it come out after full restoration...? Stay tuned for the next post to find out! #piano #pianos #pianotechnician #pianorestoration #pianotuning #piano🎹

Here are two pics of the finished, fully restored Symphonic back at home with its family. The owner's parents had bought it from Larkin Mail Order Co. (a Sears competitor out of Buffalo) when he was just a kid. Now it works again -- for the first time in several decades. He was thrilled! #piano #pianos #pianotechnician #pianorestoration #pianotuning

The Chicago trip ended a complete success, and we got home to CNY just before the storm hit. We returned the ca. 1914-1920 Symphonic player to its proud owner. Then while we were in town, we did an interior restoration on all the working parts of the 1926 Steinway Model L that his wife had owned, before she passed away. It brought us great joy to see these two family heirlooms brought hack to life to entertain the family for years to come! #piano #pianos #pianotuning #pianorestoration #pianotechnician #steinway #steinwayandsons
