Player Piano Restoration Cost
Player Piano Restoration Cost - Why A Player?
Player piano restoration cost estimates vary depending on how much work is required to bring it up to playable standard. If you have a player piano you want to be restored, you’re probably as interested in the heritage of the instrument as the actual sound it will produce for you.
You may have inherited a player piano as a family heirloom or you might have decided to purchase one you then wish to restore. Players were a very popular model of piano in the early 1900s and survived primarily as a novelty item. They are certainly strange pianos, with plenty of internal mechanisms that may require restoration and maintenance by professionals. However, they are still very popular as collectors’ items and the various models have enthusiasts across the world. When you’re looking at piano restoration for a player piano, it might be a hard truth that the costs of internal repair are more than the piano itself is worth. At this point, you need to ask yourself whether the piano you’re buying is worth the cost. If you’re going to utilise the player piano primarily as a showpiece and perhaps a novelty piece of furniture, it may not need to be in full working order. On the other hand, there is little point in having a piano that you can never play. In this case, it’s best to talk to a specialist piano restorer who has experience with player pianos. Don’t settle for the word of someone who knows a little about pianos – consult an expert.
