A house isn't a home without a piano!
We have pianos available for adoption that have not had work done to them yet.
If you find one you like we can also do the spa treatment, according to your budget.
 
These pianos have a lot of character, and beautiful wood. These older uprights, made before WWII, were made with the best materials and craftmanship. With a little love and attention,
they are restored back to life, and sound and feel great.
These are just a few of the hundreds we have. 
Some of these pianos need more work than others, but they all have the
potential to be beautiful pianos! 
 
Additional fee for three or more steps into house, and outside South Bend area.

With having over 35 years of experience as a piano tuner and technician, Stephen Merriman has discovered a needed niche in our society for the restoration of older pianos; we give them a new life. The Complete Piano model makes available high-quality instruments at a lower cost. The restoration process brings pianos back to life and function once again as a viable musical instrument.

 

Pianos made in the pre-war times were made with the best materials and craftsmanship of the times, as in all products made during this time. As with other products, “economical” shortcuts were introduced into our society which also introduced man-made materials that made certain parts of the piano break down as well as affect the sound quality. Currently, many of the new budget pianos are made with inferior materials and craftsmanship of these older pianos. You cannot buy the same quality of instrument unless you are in the higher budget range.

 

Many satisfied people have had their personal piano go through this process, and they have fallen in love with their pianos even more (many of which were headed to the landfill as the other option). With the experience of working on these older pianos for many years, Stephen has demonstrated that these pianos are beautiful, high quality instruments, that are very playable once they’ve gone through the restoration process. There are variations in quality and sound as the different piano companies changed and our economy changed throughout the post-war times, but each piano still can find a home and a purpose once it has been restored and functioning to the best of its capabilities again.
