Workshop News - Piano rebuilds in Brisbane

Jack Grigorian fills us in on his latest work in the Sydney workshop.


Jack Workshop WorkIt seems that multitasking is one of the key skills necessary to rebuild, repair and restore pianos. We currently have many pianos waiting in the queue for restoration, however two of our latest Steinway & Sons projects are happily nearing completion.

The piano pictured is a New York Steinway & Sons Model M-170, which is being restored for one of our clients. The piano came to us in original condition, and was certainly ready for significant work to be done to help bring this instrument back to its former glory.

We’ve resprayed and refinished the frame, refinished the cabinet and then completely rebuilt the internal components of the instrument, which includes restringing, replacing all felts, bushings etc. and replacing the action. 

Model M Steinway restoration DampersLast week the dampers were installed, which just leaves the process of regulation before the piano is ready to undergo its final finishing prior to delivery. The M-170 is always a fantastic little piano, as it really packs a punch but is well and truly a baby grand, and this one is no exception. The work we’ve done will restore the pianos brilliant singing voice and give her many more years of wonderful music production.
