A hundred years ago, before iPod, TV, radio or phonograph, the heart of the American home was the beloved upright piano. The children practiced every day; Grandma played for family gatherings; the top was cluttered with doilies, figurines, and the picture of handsome Uncle Verne in his uniform.
Many of those beautiful, hand-crafted, classic American pianos have survived the century. They were built to last and with some TLC and expert craftsmanship they can be made even better than new.
A hundred years later we can use advanced materials and state-of-the-art equipment to rebuild them.They can become, again, the center of the home providing beauty, elegance and music even to a home without an accomplished pianist.
