A Full Steinway Grand Piano Restoration:
We recently completed fully rebuilding this vintage Steinway & Sons Model A3 Grand Piano. Steinway Model A3 Grands measure 6′ 4 1/2″ in length, longer than ‘normal’ Model A Grands manufactured by Steinway today. Over the years the instrument had been painted black, covering up the stunning African Flame Mahogany cabinet underneath. We stripped the black paint off and the satin, closed pore refinishing process brought the piano back to looking its very best. (Take a look at the grain detail in the photos below!)
But refinishing was only one part of the total rebuild. A new solid spruce soundboard and bridges were installed as were new German music wire, tuning pins, and custom-made bass strings. The damper back action was restored, the action was fully rebuilt and concert regulated, new keytops were installed and the cast iron Steinway plate was re-gilded and hand-lettered. This long and exacting process is essential to truly restore a piano and bring it to its top potential. A true, quality piano restoration takes time and effort and we were very pleased with the end results.
