Rebuilding a piano brings the instrument back to its original state or even better. It is a costly and time consuming endeavor but is frequently the best option for a quality instrument suffering from age or neglect.

The rebuilding process involves the replacement of some or all structural parts of the piano. In a partial rebuild, this might include the action, the pinblock, the soundboard or the bridges. In a full rebuild, the piano is taken apart completely and all parts are replaced, repaired or reconditioned including the soundboard, bridges, pinblock, tuning pins and strings, the action, the damper system, the trapwork and pedal system. The case is usually repaired if damaged and refinished; the hardware is replated.
