Piano rebuilding involves the replacement of all worn, damaged, or deteriorated piano parts. The piano is completely disassembled, restored and then reassembled, tested, and adjusted to the same or better tolerances as new. Complete rebuilding includes the entire pianos structure — including soundboard, bridges, pinblock, and strings — as well as the action, keyboard, and case refinishing. You can also choose to partially rebuild; this includes only one or two of these areas, for example rebuilding of the action and structure, but not case refinishing.
Rebuilding restores the piano to original condition or most times better. Such comprehensive work is usually most practical for high-quality instruments here maximum performance and longevity are required.
This involves bringing a piano back to good condition by cleaning, repairing, and adjusting for better performance. This type of work is for a piano that has minimal wear with mid-performance requirements.
Reconditioning does not involve replacing major components such as the soundboard, bridges, pinblock, and most action parts. This means the performance and life-span of an older piano will not be restored to new. Instead, reconditioning is designed to improve a piano’s performance, keeping in mind both costs and benefits.
