Prepared Concert Steinway for Studio Recording

I first met Wolfgang (founder of ivories.ca) when I was recording a classical CD at the Glenn Gould Studio in Toronto. Wolfgang's work at the studio, coupled with his impressive reputation prompted me to book an appointment with him at my home (The Alan Hobbins Piano Studio).

Wolfgang completed a variety of technical services on my 9ft. Steinway Concert Grand Piano. These include tuning, voicing, regulation of the action and a full re-hammering of the piano. The latter of these services were particularly complex, and as Wolfgang worked, it became clear that he has the experience, technical knowledge and attention to detail that is required to handle major technical projects. After Wolfgang's re-hammering and regulation work, I decided to use my piano for upcoming recordings. The difference was evident and the piano played like new.

In each appointment (big and small), Wolfgang provided quick and reliable service and his attention to detail was unparalleled. It's clear that he takes pride in his work and treats the instrument with care. Wolfgang's work truly shines through when I play the piano after each appointment. Highly Recommended!

Meticulous Restoration of Steinway and Sons family heirloom piano

After much research, we decided to entrust the restoration of our much-loved Steinway and Sons piano to Wolfgang Meining of Ivories.ca. This piano had been in our family for over 100 years ( and had been played and enjoyed by four generations of the same family) - but it was in need of a significant refurbishment - both inside and out. We wanted to bring our family heirloom back to its former glory so it could be enjoyed by generations to come. Wolfgang and his team were true professionals from start to finish - recommending specialty movers; painstakingly restoring the action of the piano and finally completing a thorough custom refinishing of the outside case and repair and replacement of the ivories. We are delighted with the results. Welcoming our Ivories.ca restored piano back into our home is like welcoming a cherished old friend and we are confident our Steinway is now ready for the next 100 years!

Piano Tuning and Restoration

As a piano teacher, performer and musical collaborator, having a well-maintained piano is a huge priority! I am so grateful for Ivories.ca for coming through, sometimes on very short notice, to attend to my grand piano. I really appreciate how easy it is to make appointments, receive clear communication on the state of my piano, and options for maintaining it so it stays in tune as long as possible. Ivories.ca is reliable and efficient and highly recommended for piano tuning and restoration! Thanks for keeping my piano in great shape!

Piano Tuning

I have moved a lot in my professional career as a musician and piano teacher. I've worked with a lot of piano tuners and I want to share a special thank you for Ivories.ca for providing appointments that fit in my schedule, reliable service, excellent explanations, advice to keep my piano in tune, and genuine care that the piano will hold tune as long as possible. I heard about Wolfgang's piano technician services through a trusted musical colleague and have offered his name many times to musicians and to parents of children in piano lessons. I'm very pleased and trust Ivories.ca.

Repinning of Upright Piano

We originally hired ivories.ca to move a piano. Wolfgang brought the piano into our home without damaging the piano or the house.

However, it was clear that more was needed to bring the piano back to life after years of neglect. Wolfgang recommended the economical approach of repinning the piano and it sounds great again.

We will be using ivories.ca for any future piano tuning and maintenance.

Piano tuning

I called Ivories.ca to have my Yamaha baby grand tuned. Wolfgang responded to my inquiry quickly and promptly booked an appointment. He was on time, courteous and professional and he explained what he was doing throughout the tuning. Given my piano had not been serviced for many years, Wolfgang spent some time pre-tuning and the price he charged was very reasonable given the extra work that was required. If you are looking for a professional trustworthy piano tuner, call Ivories.ca, you will not be disappointed.

piano tuning

I had a Yamaha grand piano moved from Ottawa to the Toronto area
once it had arrived it sounded horrible
It had been neglected you several years
I found iveries.ca by google (lucky me!)
Wolfgang the owner came by and spend quite a while
tuning it, first he brought the tension up by pitching raising it
then he tuned string by string.
now it sounds amazing
His price was very reasonable

if you need a professional piano technician
this is the guy you want.
