Our staff of 15 technicians are continually updating their skills and have had the honor of having trainers come from several manufacturers to supplement the in house training program that has been in place for years. We have earned awards from Mason & Hamlin, Bösendorfer, Renner, and others for our success in using the finest materials and execution in our work.
Get To Know Restorations
Restorations are the processes involved in making an old piano look and sound brand new. From cabinet refinishing to complete soundboard, pinblock, and keyboard action replacement, our experienced team of artisans can restore any piano to showroom and concert hall condition.
We have made it a company priority to continually strive for the finest quality in service, product, design, material, and execution. Additionally, our staff travels worldwide to study manufacturing details, products, and restoration techniques being used and we apply the finest of what we find right here in Philadelphia.

Caring for Your Piano
To ensure that your piano sounds its very best, we recommend having your piano tuned twice a year when the seasons change. Regular tunings will also help our technicians address minor mechanical issues that can prolong the life of your piano when addressed quickly. If your piano is subject to changes in temperature or humidity, we also recommend having a humidity-control system installed to keep your piano in tune longer, prevent soundboard cracks, and avoid costly keyboard action problems down the road.
