Piano Restoration | Faust Harrison Rebuilt Steinways



We are America’s largest piano rebuilder.

We have fully rebuilt or restored thousands of pianos, and to satisfy our growing demand, we recently expanded into our new, state-of-the-art piano rebuilding factory. This page explains why our rebuilt pianos are highly recognized and valued by our clients.

Creating a New Vintage

Steinways and Mason & Hamlins are known to be great antique pianos. One of the driving passions at our company is restoring these beauties to their former glory. A little known fact is that for years, we only sold our own rebuilt pianos. Making research and study a priority, we developed our own proprietary techniques and specialized equipment with the best materials. Through diligent study of the master makers of pianos, we gained an understanding of their original techniques and the mechanics that go into making such an intricate instrument. Our renowned technique has allowed us to hire the most talented and experienced craftsmen and technicians, bringing vintage pianos to new glory.

Faust Harrison Rebuilt Pianos

Restoration

Our team of experts refurbish nearly all pre-owned pianos, including finely detailed art-case pianos and those with complex pin blocks for institutions and individual owners throughout the United States. Manufacturers of premium quality pianos often prove their recognition of our expertise by consulting us in order to improve their own crafting techniques. Our work has raised the bar for quality in the industry, and the market has recognized the inherent value of our services.

However, our rebuilt pianos continue to sell at competitive prices even though our competitors often offer their rebuilding services to other dealers who re-sell them in the secondary market for high premiums. Unlike those rebuilders, Faust Harrison is committed to our tradition of dealing directly with clients in order to offer fair prices, free of unnecessary mark-ups. We are extremely proud of our work and our crafting processes.

Restoration

We love to demonstrate our fabrication quality during tours of our 12,000 square foot factory. We welcome you to see first-hand the reasons why Faust Harrison rebuilt pianos are globally admired and why restored Steinway pianos specifically rebuilt by Faust Harrison have become a favored brand among experts. Individual and group tours available upon request.

What Makes a Faust Harrison Rebuilt Steinway Unique?

When different companies rebuild the same pianos, the results can be drastically dissimilar. What makes our rebuilt pianos stand out are our top quality components and materials, our specialized, private techniques, and our unsurpassed team of craftsmen and expert technicians. Using the highest quality materials and developing our own techniques costs a little more for us, but by having business relationships with our providers, we can supply customers with the greatest possible value.

Genuine Steinway Harps

The heart of a piano is its harp. Almost all Steinways built prior to 1945 have exceptional cast-iron harps that were made in the Steinway foundry in New York. Over the next fifty years, Steinway harps were made in non-Steinway, commercial foundries. It is our belief that the original Steinway harps are the best ever made, and we use these in our rebuilt pianos, even though they are not available in new Steinway pianos.

Renner Action

Actions produced by the Renner company are known to be precise and responsive, making them the preferred actions for most pianists. They are hand-chosen by our technicians to fit each piano we rebuild, and they offer a quality that even new American Steinways don't provide. Other rebuilders may use other actions, and if they use Renner actions, they aren't custom-selected to best fit individual pianos.

Hand-Wound Bass Strings

Bass strings that are hand-wound cost more than others, but are so essential in creating a powerful bass sound that we take the extra expense to do so. Machine-wound bass strings simply cannot give the depth of sound we require from our rebuilt pianos.

Bolduc Eastern White Spruce Soundboards

White spruce is the preferred soundboard material for practically every maker of high-end pianos. We choose Bolduc as our supplier because they carefully select the best from the eastern white spruce trees, the finest in North America. Their careful curing creates a soundboard with unsurpassed tone and durability.

Bolduc Hard Rock Maple Bridges

The hard rock maple material that we get from Bolduc is used to make bridge caps that are unmatched in purity and strength. Bridge pins set in this superior, solid material provide solid anchors for strings, enabled the notes from the piano to be steady and true.

Installation and Tuning

Restoration

The craftsmen who install and calibrate the actions and dampers in our rebuilt pianos are more highly trained and experienced than most experts in the field. The tuners who ensure the pianos are properly voiced are invaluable in creating a polished, finished product. The dedication and attention to detail by these specialists result in the highest quality used grand piano in the industry.

Hand-Rubbed Lacquer Finish

Considerable time and effort is put into our hand-rubbed lacquer finishes, and the shining result is greatly preferred by customers. With a quality rarely found on other pianos, our refinished piano cases have a rich satin luster that compliments the exquisite details. The final, polished result is breathtaking and well worth the extra effort.
