The Elkhart Truth Features the Work of Chupp’s Piano Service
NEW PARIS — Tucked away in a corner of Elkhart County, a special brand of vintage music is being made – well, actually remade.
The restoration of famed Steinway & Sons pianos – the most famous name in pianos – has become the specialty of Chupp’s Piano Service, a New Paris business founded in 1975 by Dennis Chupp, a master piano technician.
Chupp, who learned his trade of restoring and prepping Steinways, has sold more than 2,000 models. The business not only restores and repairs, they tune, locate, move and set up pianos.
“A local concert technician, Walter Boshart, helped me through my journey of becoming a piano technician and it took me 10 years to get used to the job,” Dennis Chupp said. “We had arranged training at the Steinway factory and had trained with the head Steinway service rep. (Fred Drasche)”
For over forty years, Chupp’s Piano Service has specialized in the premium restoration of ‘golden age’ grand pianos. With a focus on vintage Steinway & Sons, our work has become the preferred choice of numerous concert venues, performance halls and universities across the continent. Founded in 1975 by Master Piano Technician Dennis Chupp, our family owned and operated business is proud to continue the art of piano rebuilding. Our Northern Indiana rebuilding facility and showroom feature a large selection of restored Steinway, new Kawai and other fine makers of quality pianos.
