RESTORATION

pe_restaurations_01

The restoration of valuable old instruments is an incredibly delicate task, one in which
respecting the original design is of paramount importance. Each piano maker uses
different materials in the manufacture of their instruments, and a successful restoration
(or repair) of a piano can be ensured only if the materials and processes that were used
in the original manufacturing are adhered to as closely as possible. Sometimes this proves
to be a challenge, but it is never impossible. In our workshops we pay close attention to
these details in order that the resulting sound is as close as possible to that of the original
instrument. The personality of each marque deserves to be respected by the restorer with
a view to recreating the instrument as originally conceived (which, in some cases, could
be a century or more ago).
