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.

After months of quarantine and lockdown, Accutone Piano Service returns to limited operations tomorrow when these two beauties are returned to their owners. The upright, a 1910 Wegman, underwent full restoration and the installation of a new QRS PNOmation3 player system. The grand, a crisp and beautiful Pearl River, also had a QRS system installed. Here they play Beethoven's Turkish March in sync to celebrate our return to service and their return to home. Stay safe out there, everyone!
