          mumford-logo 2 (Traced) Unique Construction of Older Pianos Requires Expertise mumford-logo 3 (Traced)

          One of the main reasons to think about having your piano restored is that older pianos were uniquely built and have their own individual appeal and performance. The wood’s quality, for instance, is one of the main reasons an older piano may still have value. When your piano was first manufactured, it is very likely the wood was aged twenty-five to fifty years, perhaps more. This aged wood is what helps give it the perfect sound and resonance. When compared to a new piano, the sound quality of an older one, that has been correctly restored, most often will be as good or even better.

          Additionally, in the past, most pianos were built almost entirely by hand. The extra craftsmanship and care that went into building a piano is just another reason to think about having yours restored. You will not only be preserving its artisans’ legacy but will be reviving its historic charm not to mention bringing its unique musical quality back to life.

          mumford-logo 2 (Traced) Do You Need an Evaluation? mumford-logo 3 (Traced)

          Our piano restoration process begins with an evaluation of your piano. We offer two types of evaluations and depending on your goals you may need one or both: Technical evaluation and cabinetry evaluation.

          Like any piece of furniture, your piano is subjected to elements, wear and damage that are often invisible. But pluck those keys and your ears tell you immediately that your piano needs a professional assessment

          Your piano may require technical restoration that you didn't expect. It could involve matching new strings with old wires; moving or adding bridges; damper rebuilding or replacement; hammer refurbishing; shanks and flanges that need restoration, soundboard redesign or upgrade or the replacement and/or reworking of any of your piano's 12,000 parts.

          Whatever it may need, Mumford Restoration can help you determine the best path forward. We've been restoring musical memories for 40 years--we'll help you restore yours. Connect with us today.
