At Heritage Restoration we restore the outside of pianos. Our standard finish is applied to upright pianos and grand pianos usually get a grain filled hand rubbed finish. We refinish organ cases and pump organs. We restore player stacks, billows, and pneumatics. We restore the inside of pump organs (billows, valves, reed cleaning and adjusting). I am not a piano technician so tuning, regulation, pin blocks, sound boards etc. are subcontracted out.

Player Pianos are a living breathing part of the past that jump to life every time you pump the pedals! My main income is piano tuning and repair. Player pianos are my meticulous, nostalgic side trip adventure.

This gentleman has been in the player piano business for about 50 years. He was involved with Universal from the beginning and still supports the system. He also supports the PianoCorder system and is, to my knowledge, the only remaining source of PianoCorder tapes. As well as handling the solenoid-operated and modern electro-pneumatic player systems, I've also been told that he is a superior rebuilder of the reproducing player grand pianos. Recordings made using a piano he restored grace the home page at Player-Care. As the owner of the piano told me, "One of his great innovations for that RBB, was using his proprietary Lexan valves instead of the originals. It's his design, made out of Lexan plastic! They function beautifully as you can hear from the recording, very responsive, and will never go bad for many years beyond the original wood valves lifespan."

When it comes to restoring your prized antique or family heirloom you want the finest quality craftsmanship available. We at Gold Coast Pianos use many of the same materials that the original manufacturers used from the 1920's such as animal hide glue, tanned chrome leathers and high quality rubber coated fabrics. Couple that with our innovative restoration methods which are trade secrets, it would be difficult to find a better restoration out there.
