All our pianos are brought up to a playable standard; this does not automatically mean a total restoration. We believe that "if it aint broke, dont fix it" eg we will patch-up the tolex/vinyl where required, but sometimes the entire piano will be re-covered (sorry, we dont bother with the lid). Invariably, everything will work 100% and stretch-tuned to A-440Hz.
The controls will work as per usual. All the keys will be even, felts replaced where necessary etc and then played and played until we are happy wih the "feel", adjusting the tine/pick-up balance until maximum tonality and good volume is achieved.
The sustain mechanism will work freely, the dampers will damp, and the pedal/rod and legs (either original or repro) will be present and can be stached away in the removeable lid for transportation. Braces are sometimes also included in the package but each piano will have its individual "package" so please contact us for details.
