In home case touchup and shop refinishing to match most piano finishes.

KEY TOP REPLACEMENT
Replace individual ivories from my collection of used ivory and new fake ivory. Or replace all with modern key top materials for a totally new appearance.
PIANO INSPECTIONS & APPRAISALS
Thorough inspections of pianos being considered for purchase or sale. Free verbal piano appraisals offered to sellers when a tuning is done. Written appraisals available for estate and insurance purposes.
Regulation involves adjusting the piano action to maximize the touch, tone and response of your piano. A partial regulation alone is often enough to make a substantial improvement in a piano’s playability. The more a player advances in skill, the more important a well regulated piano becomes.
Voicing or tone regulation is a service many pianists are unaware of. Great improvements to the piano’s tone can be achieved with modest changes to the piano hammer’s density and alignment.
