We got to see an old friend today. We restored this 1915 Bond by Packard piano last summer and gave it a new QRS PNOMATION3 player system. It was the piano smothered in many layers of industrial-grade paint, if you go back through last year's posts. Today was our first trip back for tuning, adjustments, and checking the piano out from top to bottom. It looked and sounded fantastic! #piano #pianorestorations #pianotunings #pianos

As requested, here is a video of the newly-restored 1915 Bond playing an 1843 song by the composer Balfe, "I Dreamt I Dwelt In Marble Halls" on its new QRS digital player system. Although nearly 180 years old, this song was later covered by Enya in a very popular rendition.

Wegman pianos were made locally in Auburn, NY. They were a tremendously high-quality instrument. But when the factory burned down on May 1, 1914, the company never recovered. This piano came in for restoration yesterday. It is one of the last pianos to come out of the factory before the fire, from about February 1914, and is a genuinely historic piano. Stay tuned for updates! #piano #pianotuner #pianorestorations #pianolovers #pianorestoration #pianos #pianorepair #wegmanpiano ... See more
