Piano restoration is a precise art form, bringing a piano back to its original beauty and sound. Your piano is more than a piece of furniture, it is a fine musical instrument and must be handled with respect and care. Forté Piano Gallery has been restoring instruments for clients for over 40 years.
Restoration is a delicate procedure, whether it be a cabinet refinish or a full blown piano restoration, it begins with numerous hours of measurement and analyses before even one screw or old string is removed; a very tedious and complex procedure. This information is then computed and analyzed, resulting in formulation of a piano restoration strategy structured to achieve maximum performance from the individual piano, together with outstanding beauty to last generations.
With the enormous amount of information and planning involved, we’ve found some of the very best pianos we’ve ever played were built from start to finish with just one craftsman involved. This relationship is harder to find, but the advantages are readily apparent once understood. This is not to say that piano technicians, stores and shops that outsource many aspects of the restoration result in an inferior piano.
Experience Counts – a one-on-one, thorough and well thought out approach to each individual piano where one craftsman has control every step of the way can produce extraordinary results, ensures the end result is the piano you expected.
