a piano is the process of completely disassembling, inspecting,
and making necessary repairs to a piano. All worn, damaged,
and deteriorated parts are removed and replaced. The
piano then undergoes reassembly, testing, and adjustments
to return the piano to similar tolerances as when it
was new. There are two possible options when rebuilding
a piano. Complete rebuilding involves the entire structure
of the piano, including the soundboard, bridges, pinblock,
strings, action, keyboard, and case refinishing. Partial
rebuiliding involves only a few of these areas.
Unlike reconditioning, rebuilding restores a piano to its original condition
or better. Rebuilding is an option for a high-quality instrument which requires
maximum performance and longevity.
