Restoring Strings & Wrestpins

We are experts at restoring strings and wrestpins are arguably the most important section of a piano. Most of the faults in respect of poor tone, or tuning problems, arise from old, tired or corroded strings, and loose or worn wrestpins. Most commonly found in pianos of c.60 years of age or more. Simply cleaning the strings won’t cure age-related loss of tone quality. Loose wrestpins be cured by driving in or using pin-tight liquid.
