Complete Restoration Services:

Our restoration shop prides ourselves on restoring your treasured heirloom piano and harpsichord to better than new condition.

Every piano made today has many acoustic mistakes built into them.

The original designers  of many of todays pianos such as Torakusu Yamaha, Richard Gertz (Mason and Hamlin), Dwight Baldwin, Henry Steinway, Ignaz Bosendorfer have passed away a long time ago, and their signature mistakes are still being copied. These mistakes are primarily in the relationship between the string scale to soundboard complex. 

Imagine a better Steinway, or a better Mason and Hamlin.

At the engineering level, pianos are very complex. Lots of mathmatical formulas, lots of spreadsheets, lots of charts. Doing all of that without a computer was a daughnting task, and it would be easy to overlook an error or two. But today, thanks to computers, it is very simple to put a piano "under the microsope" and correct those errors, all while staying true to the original design.

Piano Craftsman Chris Chernobieff200
Mr. Chris Chernobieff built his first Instrument (a Mahogany Pentagonal Spinet Harpsichord after Preatorius) in 1978. And he has since spent a lifetime researching and mastering every phase of construction with both pianos and harpsichords. Now with over 30 years experience he says "There is not a single important maker who's instrument  I have not studied in detail, with both their good ideas and their bad ones in mind, that I can now follow my own path to make the piano even better than ever before".

Music should strike fire from the heart of man, and bring tears from the eyes of woman.

Art is not an end in itself, but a means of addressing humanity.
