Steinway Pianos on Sale - Antique Restoration

Steinway Piano Restoration

restoredRareSteinwayModelD-0001-bOur Steinway piano restoration artisans and technicians have deep experience in the field of piano restoration and master level knowledge of Steinway and other performance grade pianos. Our goal is to recreate the original sound and touch that Steinway created for a particular piano. Consistently, we have met and exceeded our goals to the delight of players and listeners. The sound and exclusive action  sensation are the most important elements in defining the quality of our  rebuilds .Our finish work is equal to or exceeds what you will get from old world European artisans.

Our warranty on restored Steinway pianos exceeds a brand new Steinway piano, and the value of the The Piano Store.com rebuilt pianos is usually much higher than the value of a new overseas Asian imported “mass market” piano. The big advantage  is you are buying an investment quality Steinway piano.

Our Piano Restoration Approach

Piano Restoration is both an art and a science. That is the major reason you will find passionate music musicians, major piano manufacturers, piano historians (yes, they are out there), members of the Piano Technicians Guild all chiming in with what they maintain is the ONLY way to restore a piano to its former glory.
The Steinway factory approach is to replace all parts out with the exception of the case, which is then refinished. Unquestionably, this will be a quality re-build, but the cost will almost equal to the cost of a new Steinway.
In many pianos we have worked on the action parts, soundboards, or other parts  needed major upgrading or replacement, but many other parts in the piano showed little wear or only minor need of improvement, and the cost of replacing them, should not be passed on to a buyer.
Here’s something to think about? If your automobile was not performing well, and you and a knowledgeable mechanic agreed it needed a major tune-up, do you think it would be appropriate and cost effective to change out the engine, transmission, and at the same time every other part other than the body of the car itself?
The most rewarding and cost savings way to have a Steinway or a personal loved piano restored is to send it to a restorer with experience. The PianoStore.com utilizes technicians, craftsmen, and artisans who restore over 120 pianos a year in Orange County California for customers throughout the United States and we would be pleased to have you tour our restoration facility and talk people who have had their pianos restored to their former majestic glory at our facility.

STEINWAY PIANO RESTORATION

  • The Piano Store.com uses authentic Steinway parts for replacement parts or clearly specifies other manufacturer options with specifications and cost savings, when requested by our customers. For instance, we believe Renner offers wonderful features on par to Steinway New York products, and are in fact used by Steinway themselves in the Hamburg factory.
  • We arrange door-to-door, round-trip pickup and return across the U.S.
  • We consult with customers to choose the scope of a restoration. Not all pianos need everything restored. We will work with you to meet your budget and quality goals.
  • We can  restore the piano case in your choice of color and finish
  • We adjust the touch, sensation and sound of the piano to your preference
  • We include a post-delivery piano tuning and regulation which we can arrange for you
  • We warranty our Steinway restorations, no matter where the piano is in the United States.
Our technical ability to renovate and restore Steinway player pianos is unmatched by any restoration company in the United States. We are also adept at matching the original sensation, look and sound that the Steinway had when originally constructed.
Many musicians whether professional or amateurs prefer adjustment and regulation which may be different than what originally crafted in a particular piano. We can work with you to achieve the control, sound and voicing which you are looking for and pleases your ear and target audience.
Piano Cabinet Restoration
The Piano Store.com can refinish your Steinway concert grand or baby grand so that the case looks like it travelled in a time machine, back to its original state of beauty. Refinishing is part of the process of rebuilding a piano that, for a Steinway grand, triggers an esthetic response that showcases the form of the piano as an expression of fine art.
Our technicians take a meticulous approach to the craft of piano refinishing and treat each piano as an original piece of art work. The end product is a finish on your piano that is even better or equal to when it was first produced.
When The Piano Store.com restores a piano cabinet, we remove all previous finish and stain, and sand to the core natural veneer. This creates a completely “blank palette” for restoring the cabinet.
The wonderful advantage of this “blank palette” is that we can then apply any color of stain or look our client chooses. For example, if a Steinway currently has a wood look, we can refinish it in as an ebony piano with a satin finish. Or, if a particular piano has a lighter reddish stain with an open-pore finish (some of the texture of the wood grain is still visible at the surface), we can refinish it with a darker stain and closed-pore high-gloss polish, or another type of finish of your choice.

Third Party Hustle

Resist the “Third Party Hustle” 

This post was actually meant to be just a comment in a LinkedIn Discussion, lnkd.in/M2nvng but as you will see, I got a little too carried away, and decided to move it here. Besides the long winded-ness, I did not want to have to wait for LinkedIn hotshot to decide if what I have to say is what they want to hear. Seriously, the superficial B.S. is too stupid to be real, but I will admit, that once you weed through it all, it is by far the best networking website that I am aware of, and am naturally against conformity in a world where majority rules, so I really can’t Hate on LinkedIn...I found something else to give my two cents on…If you are offended, I say do not take it personally, I did not when  I dealt with those in your position, so I see no reason why you should when I speak about the reality of what I call the “Third Party Hustle”

  •   If it sounds too good to be true, resist.
  •  If they call you, resist.
  •  If they tell you they can get you financed for a fee, resist.
  •  If they say you can get a loan that is not based on your credit and then ask for money to  build your biz credit, resist.
  •  If they say they will fix your credit for a small fee, resist. 
  •   If you are asked for money to build D&B, resist.
  •  If you are asked to pay for a DUNS report, resist.
  •   If they say they can get you a 25,000 to 150,000 loan for only 389.00, resist.
  •   If their financial advice ends in a for profit they are directly related, resist.

The "Third Party Hustle" is everywhere you turn, and their main target are those who have credit issues. if you think about it, if what they are offering is so wonderful, why are those in good credit standing not taking advantage of their services as well? 

Now, I imagine those who make a living in this line of work will have argument, but that is all talk designed to lead with truth that omits facts. Most of the time the person omitting the facts, does not know themselves, because if they did they surely they would not lead down a wrong way path, or would they? I am sure there is good and bad in any profession.

I have tried everything that is not advised here and then some, and at the end of the year, my credit was worse than when I started, and while each person who contributed to its demise, did come through with all they had promised, each one also left me saying "Well that sure was stupid."

You most likely qualify for a Government Grant, it is a process, that I would resist paying a third party to do, but that is me.. This will give you time to regain your credit, and then again paying someone to help fix your credit is not the only way. You can contest, settle, consolidate in as much time as you spend on the phone with the person you would pay to do it. if you get stuck there is far more free answers on Google than you could ever pay one person to give you.


Facts About Government Grants


SBA does NOT provide grants for starting and expanding a business.
Government grants are funded by your tax dollars and, therefore, require very stringent compliance and reporting measures to ensure the money is well spent.  As you can imagine, grants are not given away indiscriminately.
Grants from the Federal government are authorized and appropriated through bills passed by Congress and signed by the President. The grant authority varies widely among agencies. SBA has authority to make grants to non-profit and educational organizations in many of its counseling and training programs, but does not have authority to make grants to small businesses. The announcements for the counseling and training grants will appear on grants.gov. If Congress authorizes Specific Initiative Grants, organizations receiving such grants will receive individual notifications.

Some business grants are available through state and local programs, nonprofit organizations and other groups. For example, some states provide grants for expanding child care centers; creating energy efficient technology; and developing marketing campaigns for tourism. These grants are not necessarily free money, and usually require the recipient to match funds or combine the grant with other forms of financing such as a loan. The amount of the grant money available varies with each business and each grantor.
If you are not one of these specialized business, both federal and state government agencies provide financial assistance programs that help small business owners obtain loans and venture capital financing from commercial lenders.

IF by Ruyard Kipling

IF

If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you;
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too:
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or, being lied about, don't deal in lies,
Or being hated don't give way to hating,
And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise;

If you can dream---and not make dreams your master;
If you can think---and not make thoughts your aim,
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same:.
If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build'em up with worn-out tools;

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings,
And never breathe a word about your loss:
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: "Hold on!"

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with Kings---nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
If all men count with you, but none too much:
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds' worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And---which is more---you'll be a Man, my son! 
Rudyard Kipling

The Scapegoat

I recently read a story about a bad experience the author had when renting, what I presume was ‘Virtual Office Space.” In this story it was referred to as “a hired room.” The picture painted is one I can relate with, only from the other side of the rant. . . To read the full story visit: http://www.beyondnetworking.co.uk/customer-service-where-did-it-all-go-wrong/

Customer service – where did it all go wrong? Posted on May 10, 2013 by Jason Cobine

Good Point-Wrong Direction.

                I am not entirely sure if Cobine was actually asking a question in his opening line, but either way, I feel the need to give an answer [based on experience]. This post is about customer service, or rather the lack of it, why people serving customers get it so wrong, and what can be done about it.” (Corbine, 2013)

                The reason why “people serving customers get it so wrong,” is because in cases like this, getting it right is not an option. “What can be done about it,” is targeting the proper assailant, for starters. It is a big waste of time publically ranting about it, if the rant says little about the actual problem. Not only does this story miss the mark, but it also did little to even scratch the surface. Chances are, those who fail to see the picture, are of like nature, to those who hold the blame.

                I am not going to waste my time defending the employee, to me it is obvious the worker/s were not who we should be evaluating. I would suggest considering the chain of operation, and where the true accountability lies. I also will not waste my time bashing the culprits, it is not my complaint. What I will do, is take the time to give ‘props’ to the worker who works the end of ‘the chain’.  

Parting words: “A scapegoat is as nearly as welcome as a solution to the problem” (unknown)
