Encore Pianos is one of a small group of rebuilding shops in the US using Paulello piano wire for all wound strings and plain wire. Crafted by a boutique wire maker in Germany, this is the finest piano wire in the world, and is two to three times more expensive than other wires. Paulello wire is made in 5 different types, graduated by stress rates. Scaling a piano by stress rates is a very recent development and offers greater clarity, purity of tone, and a homogeneous blending of the scale unattainable by other means. Action Rebuilding
How carefully an action is designed and then built has everything to do with how well it performs under the hand of a pianist. Factory work can be filled with errors and even bad design. Every action we rebuild is analyzed using modern software. Hammers, keys, and other parts are modified as needed to order to achieve correct geometry. The result is an action that is subtle, expressive, consistent, and predictable.Materials
Simply put, Encore Pianos uses the finest materials available from around the world. These are not always from the original manufacturer, but yield the best results.Pianos for Sale
