What customers say:
Tim, I was extremely happy with the work you did on my Steinway grand. The piano is now performing better than it was when it first came to us twenty years ago, and has regained its phenomenal tonal qualities. This would not have been possible without your expertise. I would be happy to recommend you to anyone seeking to bring a fine instrument to the ultimate level of performance.

Specialising in the replacement of Steinway action rails
The Steinway action rail is a design patented in the late 1800s, and employed in all of the company’s iconic grand pianos ever since. Unfortunately, these rails are prone to splitting and warping, as the hardwood core can swell in high humidity, causing the inflexible outer brass tube to crack. All Steinway grands are checked for this potential fault, and measures are suggested to rectify the problem when necessary.
