Player Piano Restoration
Player Piano Restoration - Restoring A Player
Player piano restoration is a rather niche market in modern piano restoration. It involves looking at two separate parts of a piano to ensure that both are in full working order and, naturally, this is a job for an expert. If you’re hoping to restore a player piano, you’ll need expert advice.
Player pianos are like a slice of history. When one of these pianos for sale is restored to its former beauty, it’s more important than ever that the restoration is done sensitively and with the history of the instrument in mind. The restoration of a player piano can only be accomplished if the piano itself is well maintained. Bear in mind that the internal mechanisms of the piano may be beyond repair, just as they may be in any other type of piano. It might be too costly to repair or restore the piano and it’s worth sticking to a price you’re willing to reach for restoration purposes. Any good restorer will also caution you against paying too much for the restoration of a player. Once the piano itself is in good working order, there’s the restoration of the player mechanisms to consider. Player piano restoration can involve restoring, repairing and replacing pumps, tubing, valves and pneumatics, along with anything else which may need attending to. As you can tell, it’s not a job for an amateur. Mistrust anyone who quotes you an exceptionally low price for the restoration of a player piano as they are very complex instruments in need of professional expertise.
