Looking for Free Advice
Look No Further!!

The kind folks listed below have offered to give their advice for free but they are not necessarily actively involved in providing services to the general public. This is not to say that the other technicians listed at my site are unwilling to give free advice. On the contrary, most, if not all, are more than happy to help people solve minor adjustment and repair problems.

If there is anyone that needs information as to the serial number and approximate dates of manufacture, I can supply the information if you will contact me directly, off the 'net'.

We're primarily piano rebuilders, but we also rebuild reed organs and repair players. If you visit our page, it'll give you some of the 50+ year history and a bit of an idea of what we do. We're hungry, not greedy. We've been giving free advice , with pleasure, over the web and in the shop for years. If we can add to your list, feel free to do so. By the way, we have already received referrals from you for advice over the past 6 months or so.

If we can help, use us. That's what it's all about.

Since "Player-Care" is an internet business, I prefer that we correspond via E-Mail (click here to fill out the 'Request Form'). However, if I'm not in the middle of some other activity, you can reach me at 732-840-8787. But please understand that during the hours from 8AM-5PM EST (Mon-Sat), I'm generally quite busy. So, I probably won't answer the phone. If you get the answering machine, please leave a detailed message stating the reason for your call. Also, repeat your name and phone number clearly and distinctly. By necessity, I prioritize everything in my life. And, if you call and just leave your name and number, and ask me to call you back, it might be a day or two before I return your call. Why? Because I don't know why you want me to call and I might not be prepared to assist you in an effective and efficient manner. If you leave me an E-Mail address (which I prefer), spell it out phonetically. The more you do to help me, the more I can help you in return. Don't rush. You have four minutes to record your message.
