Steinway pianos are beautiful, brilliant instruments that have defined the industry standard for 170 years. The new ones are priced accordingly ($86,600 - $433,900 in 2023).
But here’s the thing: Steinway has been making world-class pianos for well over a century, which means thumbing through this year’s catalog isn’t the only way to find one—and in fact, a used or properly restored Steinway can rank among the finest instruments on earth.
It’s within your grasp to own a restored Steinway that’s every bit as exceptional as a brand new instrument—and perhaps even more so—while saving tens of thousands in the process. But you need a restoration partner you can trust to treat your Steinway with the care and craftsmanship it deserves.
That partner is Lindeblad.
Lindeblad’s Steinway restorations are of unmatched quality compared to anyone else. We debunk the myth that only Steinway can restore Steinways and explain our process in our Steinway Buyer’s Guide, or over the phone ––just give us a call at 888-587-4266.

“I went to the factory. I saw what they do—the work they do. My Steinway D was a complete rebuild, and it’s just incredible. I’ve got to find some more superlatives: “incredible, great, amazing!”
"You were responsive. You listened to what our needs were. You've been extraordinarily generous, and in the end, you delivered the pianos that we so desperately needed."
"Buying a rebuilt Steinway is a unique way of owning a Steinway because all of these pianos have their own history, and you're inheriting the experience and cultural influence it has – and it's one of the most affordable ways to get a Steinway."
"But the reality was that all the pianists felt, like I did, that this piano had a lot more depth and was just actually far superior to the brand-new piano."
"I'm probably a difficult client because I'm a Steinway artist and concert pianist - you offered a guarantee that if I didn't like the piano, you'd take it back. There was no risk in making this purchase.""
"My experience with them has been just phenomenal to come up with a piano that is literally the instrument that I've always dreamed of."
"The process that I've had in terms of buying this piano from Lindeblad has been fantastic. At every step of the way, just great customer service. That's what separates a fantastic business from a mediocre business."

We use only the world's finest parts. We typically offer parts from the original manufacturer like Steinway New York, Steinway Hamburg, Bosendorfer, and Mason & Hamlin, but we will tailor the restoration to your requirements. If alternate parts will serve your needs better, we are happy to use them.Contact Us
Yes. Our soundboards are hand-crafted to original specifications using traditional methods. We use the same Alaskan Sitka Spruce from the same suppliers as Steinway.
Thanks to the quality of wood and hand craftsmanship that was used in the making of early century pianos, many soundboards we encounter are still in excellent condition, or need only minor cosmetic repairs.Contact Us
All of our pianos have a five-year soundboard warranty and a twenty-year warranty on all parts we've replaced or certified. We provide a written warranty specific for each customer so that you have the chance to examine the terms in detail.

Our No-Risk Restoration has you covered. When you select an unrestored piano, we will work with you to customize the restoration and then provide you with an itemized quote for the cost of that restoration. We ask you to pay one-half of the cost upfront as a fully refundable deposit. When the restoration is complete, you pay the remaining balance and we ship the piano. At that point you have 30 days to play the piano and make sure it is perfect. If you are not satisfied, simply let us know, and we will pick up the piano and give you a full refund.
Among high end brands, such as Steinway, there are qualitative differences in how pianos are made. Different materials and production techniques are employed during manufacturing. Subjectively, many people prefer the sound of restored vintage high end pianos over new high end models, but both enjoy excellent build quality. Typically the style and price will be the deciding factors in choosing between these options.
With second tier piano brands, a restored piano is often the better choice. A hand-made vintage era (early 20th century) Mason & Hamlin, Chickering, or Knabe piano that has been fully restored will be of significantly higher quality than any mass produced piano on the market today, and cost about the same amount of money.
