Grand Piano Restoration
Grand Piano Restoration And What It Involves
Grand piano restoration is extremely popular. Grand and baby grand pianos are superb family heirlooms that owners are generally keen to preserve for future generations. As such, they are best restored by experts who know the inner workings of grand pianos intimately and are excellent at restoring them to their former glory.
It’s not unusual for grand pianos to require restoration. They are often kept in houses as mementos of past lives or family members and they make very attractive pieces of furniture. However, when it comes to the point that you or someone else decides they actually want to use the grand piano as an instrument again, you may find that problems have developed which a simpler tuning by an expert can’t solve. These can be small problems such as issues with the soundboard, for instance, or they may be more serious and involve the replacement of all action points within a piano. Depending on the age and condition of the instrument, a piano restorer may advise you not to proceed with the piano restoration. Given that they love pianos and have dealt with numerous piano restorations, it’s wise to trust their judgement. Sometimes it can be more economically viable to buy a new grand piano for your space than to spend money restoring an old one. However, these decisions always take place on a piano by piano basis and so don’t make any assumptions about the condition of your instrument until you’ve spoken to a professional piano restorer about it.
