Lindeblad’s story begins when Axel Lindeblad left his home in Stockholm, Sweden, to move to the United States in 1906. A skilled musician, Axel went into business tuning and restoring pianos in 1920, working out of his Brooklyn home.
Axel’s son Edward continued his father’s legacy in the early 1950s when, after a stint working at Steinway, he moved to a family property in New Jersey and began restoring pianos there. In the early 1960s, his sons Paul and Eric learned the family trade.
Today, Lindeblad thrives under the stewardship of the third and fourth generations, supported by a skilled team of 35 professionals. With over forty years of experience, Eric Lindeblad spearheads our action department with unmatched expertise. Each fourth-generation family member also plays a critical role in our success: Todd steers our strategic and customer service objectives, Sean elevates our customer experience and oversees quality control, Jon distinguishes himself in keybed and action restoration craftsmanship, and Peter excels as a keytop craftsman and stringing specialist.
In 2011, the Lindeblad family extended its musical legacy by opening the Lindeblad School of Music, where 32 faculty teach over 400 students each month.
Then, there’s Lindeblad’s dedication to highly personalized service, which includes our industry-leading warranties and money-back guarantee. It also extends to a sales process where customers often work extensively with the company’s owner to select their piano and shepherd it through the restoration process.
That owner learned the company’s obsessive approach to service in the same way that our action and finish teams earn their crafts—as an apprentice. Our company isn’t led by a hedge fund or a public corporation, but by a family—one that’s guided by the Golden Rule, treating others like we want to be treated. As Christians and followers of Jesus, the Lindeblad family is committed to showing love and care to our customers, suppliers, and employees.
