Piano Repair: The Cabinet
To restore your piano cabinet to a condition that matches or even exceeds its original finish is an intense process of stripping, retouching, fine sanding and respraying. A well equipped, well ventilated shop is a must for work such as piano cabinet refinishing. If an inexperienced person were to attempt to refinish the piano cabinet, they must be prepared for a slow process where layers of the finish must be left to dry in a dust free environment. Plus, there must be space to store the insides of the piano while the cabinet is refinished.
We have seen do-it-yourself results that would make you cry, but because our refinishing shop is fully equipped, we can even reverse the damage done by well meaning piano owners.
We highly recommend that you call Michael Sweeney and speak with him personally about your piano repair, rebuilding and restoration needs. Pianos in New Mexico and other states of the Four Corners region come to our shop for repairs and our customers are often surprised by the quick service, but always delighted by the results of piano restoration.
