We don't often see many pretty plates on grands anymore. Doesn't take much to add a bit of style. This is a late 1920's Weber which used to be a player piano. It has had some work done in it's previous home and is in remarkable shape considering what wasn't repaired.

When is the last time anyone has seen a knuckle used down to the core? See a new one on the left in the picture for comparison. When the pianist complains the note randomly doesn't work make sure you check everything!

another interesting piano, and because it's had new tuning pins and hammers in its life not in too bad shape. needs just a little work to be playable and tunable to give more joy to its current owner

built in 1853

starting a keytop replacement project. some material gets dirty and discolored and just needs to be replaced. stay tuned for the after photo.

hope everyone had a wonderful, safe 4th of July. We celebrated with friends and fireworks.
Now the work week continues as Lou helps restore a Grotrian Steinweg back to a better condition than it was with a new action stack. when done it'll be back to producing a great sound when played. our goal will be acheived.

one project out and delivered and another happy customer. this was a family heirloom they hoped to play again and we did it! thanks also to Richard Davis at Wood Pride for finishing the new lyre we had to replace after it was lost in a cross country move. (yes these things happen!) and Mike McAnally of M&S Deliveries for a hassle free move.
