Choose a restored piano
On occasion, I bring in a candidate for restoration. I keep the inventory pretty small, only with pianos which have stood the test of time and are capable of being sturdy, beautiful, fully restored instruments.
Price for a fully restored piano is comparable to the price of some new pianos. I have yet to hear a new piano which adequately replicates the old sound.
If you choose a piano that has yet to be restored, payment is half upfront, at which time I begin restoration. During the in-depth process, I like to text you pictures so you can document the before/during/after transformation of your piano. And then a few months later, you complete payment and have the piano delivered.
