Why restore with Watson Piano Works vs. a factory:

  • You know what you are getting. I am a hard-working small business owner with whom you will have a relationship. You will meet me and my team face to face, visit the shop, and play some of the pianos we’ve restored. We can customize touch, tone, and finish for each client. Each member of the team is involved in all steps of the process, and we take tremendous personal responsibility for—and pride in—our products.

  • You’re paying a real person and not a faceless corporation. Factory workers have no personal investment in what they are making (i. e., they never meet you face to face, are paid low wages and told to hurry). Factory-restored instruments are marked up $15,000 per restoration, not including the expense and liability of cross-country shipping.

  • You get what you pay for. By choosing piano restoration with Watson Piano Works, you have the peace of mind that comes with knowing you’re investing in meticulous workmanship and attention to detail. Our methods combine time-honored techniques with innovative strategies, and our work satisfies home musicians and concert pianists alike.

  • By restoring an old piano, you invest in the past, as well as the future. You'll get a beautiful antique that will look and sound the way it did when it was new. 

  • Restorations can be comprehensive or partial, tailored to your budget and the condition of your piano. Contact us for an evaluation today!
