Barb Hall, Certified Piano Technician


Restoration is not something normally done by piano technicians, as their shop facilities are not set up to do it, and, since chemicals are involved, the shop may not have adequate ventilation to do it safely. Restoration can mean having the plate resprayed, minor touch ups to pianos with polyester finishes, or complete cabinet restoration, which involves completely removing the original surface, and applying a new one. If the plate is being resprayed, it is normally done as part of a rebuild, as it is impossible to spray the plate while it still in the piano, and removing it under any other circumstances could mean replacement of the strings as well. New manufacturers decals can also be applied at this time as well. A piano that is being restored is almost always sent to another location where the work is to be done.
