Hello there!

I thank you for visiting my website. I’ll safely assume you are exploring your options in the pursuit of having a vintage high-quality American-made grand piano restored. Permit me to offer the following: the Internet abounds with stylishly designed piano rebuilding websites replete with pretty photographs and well-worded hyperbole emanating from the country’s countless rebuilding mills boasting meticulous craftsmanship. What can I do to distinguish myself in your eyes amid this vast sea, given the same two-dimensional, tacit playing field?

Perhaps little, but I’ll try.

Here are some tangible facts I can offer at the outset:

If you are considering having your vintage Steinway & Sons or Mason & Hamlin grand piano remanufactured, you probably will not receive a higher price quote than the one I shall present, if requested, regardless of your locale. There are no substitutes for experience, patience, highest quality materials, and painstaking attention to detail afforded by a small shop, all of which come at a price.

My practice is to take as long to mechanically restore and cosmetically refinish a vintage instrument as it did the manufacturer to create it one hundred years or more ago.

Given these preliminary tenets, if you remain engaged on this website then perhaps you, your piano and I were made for each other. I invite you to explore further.

Thank you.
