The art of properly rebuilding a piano has been described as the musical equivalent of restoring its soul. We take this responsibility very seriously. So, each piano selected for the Heirloom Collection is entrusted to the uncompromising Steinway standards and craftsmanship that originally created it.

Steinway craftsmen have meticulously rebuilt the pianos of renowned performing artist and foreign heads of state, as well as invaluable art case pianos including the historic White House Steinway presented to Roosevelt in 1939.

Whether an Steinway Heirloom piano requires custom refinishing, or replacement of the action or soundboard, only 100% genuine Steinway parts are allowed. Other rebuilders, however, may use unapproved and lesser quality parts. If a Steinway does not have 100% genuine Steinway parts, it not only compromises the piano's performance, but resale value will be significantly deminished.

When completed, each Steinway Heirloom proudly carries the same warranty as a new Steinway, and is distinguished by a medallion placed inside the lid and a signed Certificate of Restoration.
