The Lindeblad Secret –
How We Sell Premium Steinways for Half the Cost
Lindeblad provides Steinway restorations on par with Steinway, yet we offer our pianos at a far more competitive price compared to the cost of a new Steinway. How is this possible? We buy our Steinways at low rates, don't bear the large manufacturing cost of the harp and case, and don't include markups that Steinway dealers apply to their pianos.
The result? You end up with a world-class Steinway, uncompromised in quality and performance, with historically accurate parts installed by Steinway craftsmen, for half the price you would pay for a new one. For more information on parts and craftsmanship, please refer back to Chapter 3.
You Save with Our Buying Power
Being one of the largest piano dealers in the world gives us the abitlity to pick up the best quality, used Steinways at or below market value. Those savings get passed on to our customers giving them the flexbility to save money or invest back into their Steinway.
You Save When We Restore
With the harp and case already made, our customers don't incur the very significant costs of labor, materials, making the harp, complex rim bending machines, lumber yards, and the two years of overhead it can take for the wood to cure properly.
You're the Only One We Answer To
Lindeblad's pricing doesn't include the heavy markup that Steinway dealers have to apply to their pianos. Since we aren't owned by a large hedge fund (Paulson & Co.), we never have to compromise our customers' needs against board members or extensive executive staff.
"An hour before we played this piano at Lindeblad studios, we were playing a brand new, concert grand nine-foot Steinway piano in Paramus, New Jersey, at the Steinway studios. And I was worried that when we got down to Lindeblad's, we were going to say, oh, that new piano was so much better. 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."

Lindeblad Restoration Tour
In addition, Lindeblad's scale and structure of operations maximizes our craftsmen's proficiency and expertise. Our 25,000 sq. ft. restoration center is organized so that along every step of the restoration process, a customer's piano is carefully attended to by craftsmen who specialize in each individual component. As a result, each specialist is a master of their craft, knowing the slight but essential differences between the Steinway years and models.
One of the greatest advantages to choosing Lindeblad is the opportunity to customize a Steinway to your exact preferences. Our customers work personally with owner Todd Lindeblad to determine exactly what they are looking for in a Steinway piano.
No other Steinway restoration company offers the same level of in-depth customization as Lindeblad Piano. Don't make it a Steinway, make it your Steinway.

Customizing Your Steinway
Install a Player System Into Any Steinway
Along with our customization features, we can also install a piano player system into any piano chosen by the customer. From classical to pop, have any song played by a professional at the snap of your fingers. Entertain for guests, relax after a stressful day, and appreciate real music being played in your own home.
Our player systems feature the option to record and playback your own music, as well as a "silent option" which allows you to listen to your piano via Bluetooth headphones. And while Steinway only installs players into their Model M, B & D pianos, we can install a player system into any piano of your choice.
Our certificate is granted to customers who have had their pianos fully restored by Lindeblad Piano, and is signed by owners Paul and Todd Lindeblad. If an authentic Steinway restoration is scrutinised, ask the seller if it was restored by Lindeblad and if they have a certificate for proof.
If your piano has been fully restored by Lindeblad and you have not received a certificate, contact us to receive your official document. 888.587.4266

We conduct an extensive interview with every client to learn the tone and feel that you prefer. Once you are satisfied, we begin the restoration and share updates on the piano's progress until it's complete.
We have strong relationships with reputable and accomplished concert pianists who can play pianos on our clients' behalf.
We offer a 30-Day Money Back Guarantee. If we deliver a piano that a client doesn't like, we provide a 100% refund of the purchase price and bring the piano back to our facility.
We provide a high-quality audio and video recording of a client's selected piano before shipping upon request.
