Elevate the Life and Legacy of Your Family Piano
World-class restoration of the most important heirloom piano in the world: yours.
Owning a beautiful, vintage family piano should be an inspiring reminder of your family’s legacy.
But what should you do with a family heirloom piano that’s fallen into disrepair? Restore it? Sell it? Pitch it? It’s the elephant in the room—except instead of an elephant it’s a grand piano, which is roughly the same size.
Lindeblad has helped thousands of families decide the best path forward. Yours can be next.

"The first song I played was "Amazing Grace" because I kept thinking it's like amazing grace that we found these people."
"I guess it comes down to a personal relationship and a feeling of trust. I felt like I could get that from the Lindeblads. What better service do you want, really? Nice people making it easy for you."
"The Lindeblads were very prompt, whether by phone or email... I mean, they just have a passion for what they do, and that gives you a lot of confidence and respect."
"I was absolutely thrilled the day it came. It's been here about six weeks now. After having played it that long, I'm every bit as thrilled with it and more than when it came. So it just keeps getting better."
"I had faith... that I made the right decision... Because from the moment they had the piano, the experience that I had with Lindeblad was just the utmost, highest, the best service that we could have ever asked for."
"It was clear this wasn't just a business to the Lindeblads. It was a family tradition to them to really invest in the perfect restoration of these vintage pianos... I was convinced and never disappointed in choosing Lindeblad as the one to do it."
"From the very first moment I contacted them, it was nothing but professional... They did just a phenomenal job... Everything from start to finish was just seamless."
Whether it is a well-known brand or not, any piano can be restored. The decision often comes down to the subjective value you place on your piano and the amount of money it will take to restore it, versus the cost to purchase a different piano that already meets your requirements.
We recommend that you think about how much money you want to spend on restoring your piano, then list exactly what you would like to improve about your piano. For instance, do you want the cabinet refinished or any of the mechanical parts improved? One of our friendly piano experts would be happy to give you a quote on the restoration work so that you can decide if your piano is worth restoring.Contact Us
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.

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.

We do not recommend that you restore a piano to improve its saleability. Unlike a home remodeling project that often results in appreciation above the cost of the renovation, a piano restoration typically adds value to a piano equal to the cost of the renovation. Instead, we recommend you sell the piano as is and allow the buyer to restore the piano to their specifications.
