Repinning and Stringing

Our repinning and stringing service provides the stability and tuning for between 15-20 tonnes of tension, allowing for the perfect sound on your piano. This is an essential service that contributes to the stability and tone production of your piano, allowing for a beautiful and rich sound every time you play. We use only the highest quality materials and expert craftsmanship to ensure your piano is restored to its original state. With our repinning and stringing service, you can be sure that your piano will be sounding beautiful for years to come.

In some cases the wrest plank which houses the pins will have split and be unable to take the tension placed upon it. This will be carefully assessed at our workshop and a new wrest plank will be crafted if necessary. Similarly, the frame must also be free of fractures and cracks. All this will be discussed with you to keep you fully informed.

Soundboard restoration is an essential part of piano restoration. Our service focuses on optimizing the resonator of the piano, the building block that the piano is built on. This is essential for a pure and even tone. We use the best quality materials and techniques to ensure that your piano will sound as good as new.

Action, Keyboard and Damper Assembly

The action, keyboard and dampers are composed of hundreds of moving parts. This intricate system needs to move smoothly in tandem through the process from pressing the key to the hammer's final resting position. Our rebuild and restoration service ensures this process is optimal and your piano is not being compromised by an old and worn out inner mechanism. This includes restoration of ivory key tops and as some mechanisms are more worn than others, will be tailored to the specific needs of your piano.

Regulation and Tuning

Regulation and tuning is the perfect finishing touch to your piano restoration. It provides the necessary mechanical adjustments to create a smooth and comfortable playing experience. After restringing, your piano will be tuned a minimum of 10 times and delivered above concert pitch to help it settle in to its new environment. With our regulation and tuning, you can be sure your piano will sound the best it possibly can.
