Expert Grand Piano Repairs
A grand piano is more than an instrument — it’s a work of art. Like any work of art, regular maintenance and periodic repairs are essential to preserving it for the long term.
Bradfield Piano offers grand piano repairs for instruments by all manufacturers. And although we have extensive experience with Steinway pianos, we are well equipped to complete work on any high-end grand.
What’s Involved With Grand Piano Repairs?
Pianos are complex instruments. Keeping them working and looking their best requires dedicated care. Some of the things our team can take care of include:
- Tuning: Grand pianos contain 220 strings which must be correctly tensioned to maintain the correct pitch and intonation. Heat and humidity can affect a piano’s intonation. If you play regularly, we recommend having your piano tuned at least twice a year.
- Cleaning: Cleaning may be a cosmetic repair, but it’s often every bit as important as staying in tune. We can polish your piano’s exterior to a beautiful shine, taking care not to damage its delicate internal components.
- Cabinet refinishing: If your piano continues to play well but is showing its age in other ways, refinishing is a great way to bring it back to life. Our team can do anything from cleaning up little nicks and dents to stripping and restoring the exterior to its original finish.
- Structural repairs: Structural grand piano repairs include any work done to the pinblock, plate, soundboard and other major components. Keeping these parts in great shape — or replacing them when they’re damaged — is the first step in extending the life of your piano.
- Mechanical repairs: All moving piano parts can wear out over time. Even if your instrument’s structural components are in good shape, wear and tear can lead to issues like dead keys, poor action and more. These problems fall under the category of mechanical repairs — important work that requires an artisan’s touch to do correctly.
