O'Briain Pianos provide internal and external piano restoration services in your home without the piano being taken away to a workshop.
This process takes 3 to 5 hours. In the end, your piano looks and sounds great again, restored to its former glory, inside and out.
Here is what's involved in the process:
Case is professionally stripped and French Polished by hand back to new standard. Brass trimmings, screws, pedals, and manufacturers logo are refinished. Name board felt is removed and replaced with a new one (brown, red or blue). Case is repaired (cracks, scratches, damaged surfaces are filled). Keys and action are removed; piano is thoroughly cleaned and pressure blasted free of dirt and dust. Free play is removed from keys, action, rods and pedals. Castor wheels are lubricated. Tapes, springs and felts are replaced where necessary. Internal points and moving parts are lubricated. Hammers, jacks and dampers are re-aligned. Hammers are voiced if necessary. Pins are tightened if necessary. Pedals are regulated and repaired. Action is regulated and tuned.
