Sometimes a piano will require more than just a standard tuning and we can assist! From minor onsite repairs to more extensive rebuilds, insurance claims and resprays you have come to the right place!
A good piano tuner must not only be able to tune, but also be able to analyze problems and do the necessary repairs and regulation. Most of the parts needed for repair come from overseas and are costly, besides this, they are also sized in differences of millimetres.
We have extensive knowledge of many types of pianos and repair hundreds of pianos every year. Because of the number of manufacturers that once existed, there are numerous action types and materials used. Master piano builders continually design and redefine the process, materials, and design to try and produce the most pleasing tone and touch.
Minor repairs could occur as a result of wear and tear. As pianos are constructed from natural materials these are all subject to wear and tear as well as being eaten by moths and perhaps even rats or mice. This will lead to the need for these parts needing to be replaced.
Major repairs can be a result of years of neglect, sun damage, water damage or even being dropped/transported incorrectly (head over to our page on transportation for some tips and hints).
Insurance Claims are stressful, we can assist! Water damage, fire, flood or water damage can all be done inhouse. We deal directly with most of the major insurers and can ensure your piano is either repaired or worse case scenario replaced.

Servicing a piano can also be referred to deep cleaning or detailing of a piano and extends way beyond a simple clean. We recommend that a service be done every 5 to 10 years. This would include:
• Stripping the piano
• Vacuuming and cleaning all parts including the back
• De-rusting/cleaning strings
• Polishing brasswork
• Tightening all the bolts and action screws
• Cleaning the soundboard
• Lubrication where necessary
• Re-felting pedalwork
• Feeding and polishing the cabinet
