In the piano restoration industry, the most highly acclaimed pianos are vintage Steinways- Steinway pianos manufactured between the late 1800s and the 1950s. What makes vintage Steinways so unique? In the heyday of piano manufacturing, Steinway wasn’t using a modern assembly line. The pianos were made in a small station by two or three people working together on one piano. The craftsmen were able to focus on in on the finer details of the piano in a very intimate setting, as a skilled luthier would.
At Supreme Pianos of New York, we replicate this intimate process to piano rebuilding with only two or three technicians working on each piano. This old-school manufacturing process, combined with modern technology, allows us to produce restored pianos that are better than the original vintage instruments of yore.
All of the vintage Steinways that we have for sale are completely restored with new soundboards, pin-blocks, bridge caps, strings, and new action parts, dampers felts, and are entirely refinished.
