Piano rebuilding is a loosely-used phrase with
a wide range of meanings -- from cleaning to virtually replacing
all the parts inside a piano. Every piano I see has different
needs, strengths and weaknesses, and should be evaluated accordingly.
The needs of the customers we deal with are as varied as the
pianos, and this also needs to be considered in assessing
what should be done to a piano.
Some pianos are still in excellent condition,
only needing cleaning, regulating, some general maintenance
and a tuning. Some have actions that need new hammers and
bridal straps. Others will no longer stay in tune and need
to be repined and restrung, while some have to have bridges
or soundboards repaired or even replaced.
The key to finding out what your piano needs
and if the instrument is worth spending this amount of money
on, depends upon having a thorough evaluation done on your
piano by a reputable piano rebuilder.
