Ensuring that your Steinway remains a Steinway

Restoration Center

Steinway pianos and grand pianos are built in such a way as to retain their outstanding tonal and playing characteristics over generations. From Steinway & Sons' founding in 1853 until today, our valuable pianos are largely manufactured by hand.
This also naturally applies to our restoration center, in which older or antique pianos are lovingly restored. That is why it is located in the Steinway factory in Hamburg. Only in this way can you rest assured that original Steinway spare parts will be used exclusively, and your Steinway remains a Steinway!
You will find some examples of repair work we regularly perform below.
