Repair & Restoration

Restoration is the art of transforming older, worn-out traditional pianos to their former glory. We renew all the age-affected felts, leatherwork, springs, loops, centre-pins, pinblocks, soundboards, bridges and strings etc., to enable the instrument to perform as well as when it originally left the factory.

Our fully outfitted, heated shop is one of the few that has its own soundboard press.

Specializing in piano tuning, repair,
refinishing, reconditioning, and rebuilding.

Piano refinishing is 100% undeniably a job for professional piano refinishers. We offer a total refinishing service whereby the entire casework of the piano is stripped of its original lacquer/polish, repaired/veneered where necessary, sanded, stained, and finally resprayed. We can also do polyester repairs and buff cabinets when required.


Kevin Ellis's dedication and sought-after experience is evident in every piano repair, recondition and restoration he undertakes.
