Preserve and conserve for future generations
In theory, any piano could technically benefit from restoration. However, financial considerations and an assessment of the actual musical potential of the instrument may mean it is not always advisable. In order to avoid incurring costs which are disproportionate given the instrument’s quality and the use to which it will be put, it is possible to conserve the instrument in an acceptable playing condition. Conservation preserves the instrument, ensures its longevity and avoids the risk of it becoming a purely decorative item. At the Balleron workshop, we are keen to conserve instruments, keeping them in a playable condition so they remain living instruments rather than unused museum pieces.
