Stains & Finishes

The look of a piano is one of it’s most important attributes. Once stripped to the original unfinished wood veneer, the choices are limitless. Select from a wide variety of stain colors, or we can mix a custom color. Once stained, layers of lacquer are slowly applied to create your desired finish, from open-pore to closed-pore. Finally, the lacquer is painstakingly hand-rubbed to create a satin, semi-gloss, or high-gloss polish.
