Restoring as well as repairing player actions and piano players. Have tuned in the past but prefer to leave that to a good friend that does it for a living. I've found that most of the time player pianos can't be merely patched up to work. They most likely need rebuilding due to the fact that all the parts are old and dry and tend to be unable to handle new workings when installed.
I've been dong this work on and off for about 15 years now and have worked at times with the greatest restoration man I know, Arthur Pierce, of Plattsburgh NY.

I am a one man piano shop that restores only old upright foot pumper player pianos. I have been repairing them for over 25 years now. First, the player mechanism is put aside and the piano itself is brought up to whatever level of sound and appearance that the owner dictates, then the rebuilt mechanism is re-installed. After, with both parts working well, you end up with a great sounding, good looking, and easy to pump instrument.

AMI Enterprises was founded in the last century! (1970 to be precise.) I (John Grant) have been a member of the Automatic Musical Instrument Collectors Association (AMICA) and the Musical Box Society, International (MBSI) for most of those years. I have contributed articles (mostly technical in nature) to the publications of both organizations and have given technical seminars on aspects of player piano technology and restoration at past international conventions. I have presented a multi-media demonstration of reproducing piano technology at the Smithsonian Institution's Hall of Musical Instruments and maintained its Mason & Hamlin Ampico B piano until its retirement from active exhibit. Although I specialize in "reproducing" pianos, I can have my arm twisted for regular "pumper" pianos and parlor pump organs. I also have restoration experience in player organs (AEolian Residence Pipe Organs and Orchestrelle Reed Organs) and automata such as singing bird cages. Reproducing piano restorations have included Duo-Art, Ampico A & B and several Welte formats in up to 9' concert grand instruments. I have experience in several electronic player systems including the Stahnke SE installation in 9 1/2' Bosendorfer at the University of Maryland, Piano Disc, and more recently, the Hunt Piano Company's "Virtual Roll" system. I have well-equipped metal and wood working shops, and although I limit myself to player mechanism tasks, I have associates available to me who are skilled in other "normal" piano restoration tasks such as keyboard and action refurbishment, hammers, dampers, re-stringing, re-pinning, pin block replacement, up to, and including completely new soundboards and bridges. I have local access to a top level re-finisher who specializes in piano re-finishing. Although I do not maintain a web site specifically for my restoration activities, I currently have only about a three month back-log and can offer competitive pricing. Please call, write, or email to discuss your needs.

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.
