When considering the refinishing of your pianos, it helps to know about the various products and methods available to you, as well as what is appropriate for your particular piano.

Traditionally, the object of refinishing a piano is to restore the original look of the instrument.  However, some customers change the color of the piano to make it match the furniture in their homes. 

While this is possible, professionals usually don't recommend changing solid colors (black, white, etc.) to wood finishes (mahogany, walnut, oak) since removing a solid base color may reveal some damages, imperfections, or mismatched patterns in the original wood.

If the quality of veneer is not to your liking or has been significantly damaged, we are specialists at replacing veneers.  In our collection, we have thousands of breeds of exotic veneers, including maples, mahogany veneers, select ebony and burl veneers from around the world.

There are many types of lacquers and finishes available on the market, such as:  regular lacquer, polyurethane, water-based finishes, and chemical-resistant polyester lacquer.  For antique, highly-detailed, carved, or ornamented pianos, many prefer a French polish.  This is a hand-refinishing technique performed by applying and buffing out multiple coats of alcohol-based lacquers, the way pianos were finished many years ago.  Our customers are welcome to choose any type of finish they prefer.

During the refinishing and restoration process, we invite our customers to our facilities to select the color and veneer for their piano.  When all the original lacquer has been stripped from the case and parts and the piano has been sanded, we invite you to look at the quality and type of wood on your piano.  You will have a chance to try different stains, from walnut to cherry, mahogany, oak, and many more.  We can also make a custom finish designed to match the furniture in your home.

Piano Legs, Music Desks, Piano Lid, Piano Pedals, Fallboards, and the piano case can be customized and redesigned to match your favorite style.  Carved and Art-deco pianos are worth far more on the market.
we can design to your taste and specifications
