PIANO TUNING SERVICE, RESTORATION, REFINISHING and REPAIR
Rebuilding consists of renewing or repairing the mechanical parts of the piano that makes the sound. Refinishing usually refers to the exterior and is a completely different job. A piano that doesn't look pretty can still sound good. Don't be fooled. An ugly piano can sound just as great as a new one. Some people rebuild just the mechanical guts that make the sound.
These are some of the components:
Repairing the action
Repairing the soundboard
Replacing the pinblock
Recover and restore the keys
When it comes to repair, there are a number of common problems: sticking keys, broken strings, sluggish or broken action parts and several others.
Piano action, wooden and felt mechanical parts.
