Restored antique vintage pianos have a special character and charm about them. Each one of these pianos is unique, and has a certain appeal that is sometimes hard to match with a new instrument.
Restoration & Repair
Here at The Piano Workshop, we will restore your piano to the highest standard of workmanship. Our experienced technicians strive to restore these vintage instruments back to their original grandeur whilst retaining the special character that these older instruments have.
We work to restore their musical qualities along with the beauty of appearance. Thus enabling the instruments to once again be played, admired and loved. These restorations are carried out with careful use of appropriate materials so that each piano retains its individual “antique” style.
We place a great emphasis on attention to detail by researching, locating and using the most suitable strings, felt, leather, timbers and finish so that every instrument will look and perform at its very best.
Many old instruments were finished with shellac, and should rightly be refinished the same way. French polishing is a labour intesive, time consuming method, but is the only way to preserve the original look and feel of your piano.
Player Piano Restoration
At The Piano Workshop we offer a complete restoration and rebuilding service for the player piano. The player piano, or Pianola as it is often known, had its beginning in America in the late 1890’s and its heyday in the period of 1910 through to 1925.
