Chupp’s Piano Service was founded by master piano technician Dennis J. Chupp in 1975. Dennis first became fascinated by the workings of the piano as a young man, after observing a local piano tuner working his ‘magic’ on his church’s piano. Under the tutelage of the regional Steinway & Sons service representative, he began to hone his tuning and repair skills and soon began to branch out into more extensive restoration work. Dennis received training at the New York Steinway & Sons Factory and personal training from Fred Drasche, the legendary Steinway & Sons head service representative. All of this would lead him to create Chupp’s Piano Service, Inc. and begin his focus on the full rebuilding of vintage pianos.
The family owned and operated business soon outgrew the small workshop behind his home. In 2000 Chupp’s Piano Service packed up and moved down the road into a state of the art, climate controlled rebuilding facility just south of the City of Goshen in the Town of New Paris, Indiana. Since that time, the business has prospered and weathered the storms of shifting tastes, economic uncertainties, and a changing music industry to join the ranks of the preeminent piano rebuilding shops in the United States. In late 2019, we completed the addition of a spacious showroom – conveniently located right next to our rebuilding facility.
Our full line of premium, world-class services are capable of satisfying the most discriminating artist and can be tailored to your unique tone and playing preferences. We invite you to carefully consider Chupp’s Piano Service for all of your piano service and restoration needs. A list of references and testimonials may be provided upon request.
Restorations & Rebuilding.
A piano can become a beloved heirloom and centerpiece in your home and life. However, without proper care and maintenance, they can fall into disarray. At Chupp’s Piano Service we have the experience and resources to repair and fully rebuild your treasured instrument to bring it back to its original glory. The restoration of these historic pianos is our primary focus!
We do not just take apart, change parts and put back together. We go over every inch of your instrument to ensure it is concert regulated, expertly tuned and producing the tone and touch you desire. Many pianists prefer a vintage re-built piano as it is common to find that pianos from a company’s ‘golden age’ have a better tone and touch than newer models. Having sold over 2,000 vintage Steinway pianos we have the experience and knowledge required to provide you with the perfect piano. Our showroom inventory includes many re-built and restored instruments ready for you to play and select from. We provide private appointments so you can select the fine instrument that is the right fit for you.
Our premium rebuilt Steinway & Sons pianos are well known for their high quality and beautiful performance. There are over 12,000 individual parts inside of a Steinway & Sons grand piano. Each component works in harmony with the other to create the iconic and beloved Steinway tone. It is essential to choose a piano restoration company with the experience, knowledge and commitment to get the job done correctly. We have provided instruments for numerous collegiate level music departments and concert pianists throughout the world. Our restored pianos have become the preferred choice for countless professional musicians including Steinway Artists.
