Piano Restoration

North Carolina’s Premier Piano Restoration Service Provider Since 1958. Piano restoration involves complete disassembly, inspection, and repair as necessary, including replacement of all damaged, worn, or deteriorated parts. The piano is then reassembled, tested, and adjusted to the same or similar tolerances as new. Complete piano rebuilding includes the repair or replacement of the soundboard, bridges, pinblock, strings, action parts, keyboard, and case refinishing. Partial rebuilding includes one or two of of these areas, for example rebuilding the action and structure, but not refinishing. Complete rebuilding restores the piano to its original condition or better. Such comprehensive work is most practical for higher quality instruments where maximum performance and longevity are required. Our staff of Registered Piano Technicians have 150+ years of combined experience!

Customer Reviews

I have known Richard Ruggero, who had done some work on my old piano, not only as a superb technician but also as one of the nicest and most honest people in the business. As my old piano is aging out, I have recently been looking for pre-owned Steinways, hoping to find my dream piano. Alas, the good ones are still out my price range, but I had recently heard about Estonia pianos, and contacted Richard Ruggero to see if he had one I could try. Indeed he did! He even placed it in a back room in the configuration I would have it in my living room, next to another piano. I really liked the Estonia, but liked the other piano even better, which turned out to be a Schimmel! Who knew? What I love about Richard and everyone in his shop is that they gave me (and the friends I brought along) ample time to play all the instruments we wanted to, with absolutely NO pressure! They were there to answer any of our questions but otherwise left us alone to play. Knowing how much I loved the (brand new!) Schimmel C 189, and also my budget, Richard was able to make me a wonderful offer, and I could not be happier with the piano! Delivery went smoothly, I’ve been playing it for a week now, and it seems to just get better and better! I am so grateful, knowing that I will have Richard and his staff to take care of my piano for as long as it lives here with me! - Ingeborg Walther
