What should you do with a Steinway in disrepair?

Owning a beautiful, vintage Steinway piano should feel like an honor and privilege. But what should you do with a Steinway that’s fallen into disrepair? 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.

100 Years of Craftsmanship & Service

We’re a century-old family business that has restored thousands of Steinway pianos, so we’re well equipped to help you sort through the many variables that impact whether restoration makes sense for your instrument.
We offer unparalleled craftsmanship and restoration experience, restoring over one hundred Steinways each year.

Steinway Craftsmanship

The premium hardwoods, wet sand-casted harps, and precision workmanship behind an early 20th century Steinway are unsurpassed, especially in the modern era of mass production and paper-thin veneers glued onto pressboard.

At Lindeblad, we believe that a proper restoration of a vintage Steinway must follow in that same tradition. Accordingly, every aspect of a Lindeblad restoration is completed by hand—no automation, no heavy machinery, and we can tell you exactly which craftsmen worked on each aspect of your Steinway’s restoration. Our master craftsmen have been practicing their artistry for decades, restoring more than 2,000 Steinways.

Master craftsman with decades of experience, precise part dimensions, and quality part materials are what make a Steinway authentic.

Stein-was? Not with Lindeblad

How can you trust that Lindeblad is capable of restoring your Steinway to its full glory? It’s an important question because it’s true that poor craftsmanship or inferior parts can harm a previously great piano. And considering Steinway’s claim that a Steinway piano isn’t authentic unless they restore it themselves at their facility in Iowa, it’s natural to feel nervous.

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.

Frequently Asked Questions


Is my piano worth restoring?

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.

Vintage vs. New

Are vintage pianos better than newer pianos?

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.


Who handles the shipping?

We handle all of the shipping logistics for your piano restoration or purchase. Through our network of specially trained piano movers, we coordinate the pickup and delivery of pianos all over the world, every day. Additionally, once delivered we will have your piano tuned by a local professional.

How long does a restoration take?

A full piano restoration typically takes about 3 to 4 months to complete. If you need one done faster, please contact one of our friendly piano experts who can help see if we will be able to accomodate your timeline.

What parts do you use when restoring a piano?

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 taylor the restoration to your requirements. If alternate parts will serve your needs better, we are happy to use them.

Contact Us


Do you replace soundboards?

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


What is your warranty?

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.

Piano Loan

Can you provide a loaner piano while mine is being restored?

Yes. Speak with one of our friendly piano experts for details.

I am selling my piano, should I restore it first?

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.

It’s time for your Steinway’s next act.

Your journey starts with a video call or other meeting where a Lindeblad expert will learn about your heirloom piano and discuss your restoration options. We’ll also walk through our warranty and financing options so you can be confident that your restoration will end in success.
