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).

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.

If I'm in the Shop or at Home, I will answer the phone.
Otherwise, please leave a message.
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.
