This is Bryan Hartzler, owner of Hartzler Pianos.
I operate a full service rebuilding shop specializing in concert instruments. I have worked as a concert technician at the Aspen Music Festival, the Tanglewood Music Festival, and the Boston Symphony Orchestra, performing concert prep and tuning of Steinway concert grand pianos.
-In my restoration shop I do all of the work myself, and all of the concert prep at the end of the restoration as well, so my pianos are some of the finest concert instruments you will find anywhere. They offer 100% professional performance.
-This piano was formerly a Steinway C&A piano and subsequent to restoration has been loaned to major venues and artists.
-You can visit my website for additional information regarding my piano services.
-In particular please visit the restoration page and read about what a new bridge cap/down bearing does for your piano.
-Proper down bearing and new bridge pins on an older instrument makes a tremendous difference in the performance of the piano. A restored piano with with new bridge cap, bridge pins, and proper downbearing will always out-perform a vintage piano with original bridges and bridge pins.
