In normal use and under normal conditions, pianos should need only periodic tuning. It is recommended that you tune your piano at least 2 or 3 times a year. You, however, are the final judge and should have the piano tuned as often as you think necessary. To put the matter of tuning into perspective, remember that a concert piano is tuned before every performance, and a piano in a professional recording studio, where it is in constant use, is tuned 3 or 4 times each week as a matter of course.
At Lauzon Music, we have skilled professionals on staff for your tuning needs. Please contact us for your appointment.
Piano Reconditioning and Restoration
Superior factory quality finishes are produced in our state-of-the-art professional spray booth facility located on premise. Our customers often comment that our restored pianos have a better appearance than many new pianos. The secret lies in all the extra effort we put in our restoration work. Before the finish is applied, we do a special preparation on the outside wood cabinetry of the piano. We also use a unique factory polishing technique on all of our finishes to give the final product that dreamy satin luster. The result? Restored pianos that look brand new!
To guarantee superior quality inside the piano, we have technicians on staff with more than 30 years of experience. Our restored pianos play like new. The restoration process is a very complicated one but suffice to say that we do the job right. We have developed our expertise in this field since 1945 diligently and continuously, giving us 65 years' experience in piano restoration. When you visit Lauzon Music, you can actually see the restoration and refinishing work in progress on the lower level of the store. We welcome all our customers to see first-hand how we produce fabulous restored pianos in our facility. We believe it will be an experience both exciting and entertaining.
To our knowledge, our restoration techniques and custom finishes have not been duplicated anywhere else in Canada. Because of our reputation for ultra high quality restoration work, we were asked by the Canadian Government to restore Glenn Gould's personal grand piano. The restoration was done in 1982 and this piano currently resides in Rideau Hall.
