“Everything went absolutely seamlessly and we could not be happier to have our piano finally home!”
Chupp’s Piano Service of New Paris, Indiana recently had the pleasure of working with a wonderful couple from Boston, MA. They were kind enough to provide us with the following letter of recommendation. It is always very encouraging to us when our restored pianos end up in homes where they will be played and truly cherished. This was most definitely the case with this Steinway Model O.
“One of my wife’s lifelong dreams has been to own a Steinway piano, as her parents and grandparents did. Playing the piano has always been a huge part of my wife’s family’s life.
Although not a musician myself, but one that can appreciate quality and fine art, I approached Dennis Chupp to help me with the purchase of a Steinway Model O for my wife’s birthday. Dennis not only took the time to explain his experience and the business to me, but walked me through the intricacies of why a Steinway along with his restoration business is second to none. After much research and reference calls, we made the decision to proceed with a complete restoration of a 1921 Model O. This included having the finish changed from mahogany to ebony and a piano player system added.
With Dennis’ guidance, appreciation for the art, and pride in his craftsmanship, both my wife and I were delighted with our newly restored piano: which is filled with rich history and amazing sound. That same quality that Dennis represented was evident when we visited (from Boston) his shop and met the entire team. Everyone was warm and knowledgeable, answering all of our many questions about the individual pianos that they were working on as well as our own. That same attention to detail and pride was evident in the work that each team member put forth regarding each piano they were restoring. Dennis also arranged for the delivery of our piano from Indiana to Boston as well as connected us with a piano tuner in our area. Everything went absolutely seamlessly and we could not be happier to have our piano finally home!
After initially researching multiple options for obtaining a Steinway Model O, we are so thrilled with our decision and our piano, as well as working with our new friends at Chupp’s Piano. We would recommend no one else!”

Many piano restoration firms focus on the cosmetic. While this is by all means very important, our primary focus is on the piano as a pure musical instrument. We spend many extra hours in the regulation and voicing of each of our rebuilt pianos. From the initial action regulation to the final weigh-off, each step is taken with great care in order to create a piano worthy of the name affixed to its fallboard.
Turn of the century/pre-WWII grand pianos are a living example of the historic quality of craftsmanship that was once standard at the Steinway & Sons and many other piano factories. It truly was a golden age for pianos! Here at Chupp’s Piano Service, Inc. we are proud to carry on that tradition of exacting quality.
Our specialty is the restoration and rebuilding of vintage grand pianos. Our rebuilding facility in New Paris, IN. and our piano showroom in Goshen, IN. offer a wide selection of some of the finest pianos available today. Chupp’s Piano experts stand ready to assist you in either selecting a piano or restoring your current instrument.
