Grand Piano Teardown
Teardown is one of the first and one of the most important phases in a rebuild or restoration project. A careful study of the instrument, and good documentation of its original condition and characteristics is very helpful in allowing the job to go well. This process gives you an understanding of the scope and direction of a project. This class will cover many of the measurements, photographs, notes, jigs and fixtures taken or made as part of the rebuilding projects at NBSS. It is a lot to cover in the given time, and there are no end to the variation of ways this can be done – so we’ll scratch the surface and start conversations about how to start a project so you can be confident the work will end…and end well.
From the M. Steinert & Sons Facebook Page,
We're home! After four years of being away we have relocated our Boston piano showroom back to the historic Steinert Building at 162 Boylston Street in Boston. Our showroom is now located on the second floor.
M. Steinert & Sons originally erected the Steinert Building in 1896 and occupied it until 2015, when the building was sold. The six-story, 38,000 square foot building was purchased by B Minor, LLC in 2015, but planned renovations have been delayed. Our Boston showroom has been temporarily located in the Park Plaza building since 2015.
We are very pleased to be returning to the place we called home for 119 years, and we look forward to welcoming our customers,
We hope you stop by Steinert Hall to see us again soon!
I look forward to seeing you at the meeting!
