If you intend to ever buy a used piano that has been reconditioned, save yourself some frustration, anger and money - watch these videos by Jamie Musselwhite , a piano technician in Toronto. The videos are short, sweet, to-the-point as he shows he corrects some problems on this "reconditioned" piano, and then beautifully finishes the job.
P.S. If you happen to be selling an old piano, check out what it's going to take to get it ready for someone to play --
If you find yourself still lost, give me a call - I can help you go through that piano to help you determine if it is a treasure or not!
