Amadeus Piano Key Restoration Shop
Welcome to the Amadeus Piano Co., Inc. Key Restoration shop.
We restore antique ivory piano keys, ebony piano keys and piano
key-tops. All new pianos are made with plastic key tops. Plastic key-tops are
very durable, require much less maintenance and are always available0, as well as
ivory key imitation called ivorene.
How to tell if your piano has ivory keys:
Ivory key tops are always made from three pieces
per key, two pieces on the key top and one on the key front.
There is a fine, thin line that is always visible on the top, as
well as a wood-like grain pattern. If some pieces are unglued
and lost from your piano, it's possible to get a close match from
our vast collection of various shades of antique ivory key tops.

All piano manufacturers have been making pianos with plastic keys
for decades. Ivory keys are no longer legal. If
you prefer to restore the antique look and feel of the piano
keybaord, we have a huge collection of antique ivories to help find
a close match to your original ivory piano keys in shade and size.

Piano keys are vulnerable to changes in humidity just like the wood
parts of your piano. With constant humidity fluctuations
between summer and winter, piano keys warp and crack. It's
best to keep the piano fallboard (piano key-cover) open to allow air
to circulate freely. This will prevent premature yellowing of
the keys. Keys can be professionally polished and buffed to
restore the original look and luster.
To clean your piano keys: Piano keys are durable but should
not be cleaned with any products containing alcohol, alcohol-based
products can melt plasic keys and dull ivory keys. Please contact us at
