Piano Rebuilding & Restoration at  John Peters Piano

In some cases, your piano may need replacement of parts, or rebuilding of the the action parts or piano itself as part of your piano restoration. This is usually when a simple repair isnít enough.

Some common replacements that may be needed include bass strings, keytops, and hammers. Worn bushings, broken springs, and worn dampers are typical in older pianos, greatly interfering with its ability to play musically.

Deciding when piano rebuilding is necessary really depends on the type of piano, age, and history.  An older piano that you are considering for purchase may be a prime target for a multitude of problems, including the inability to hold a tuning. This is why it is good to hire a skilled and trained piano service professional to have a look before purchasing it.
