Description of work "Chris [Peacock, the owner] removed the action, replaced several key tops and tuned the strings on my old Apollo baby grand piano."
Member comments "After finding the serial number, Chris told me they made the piano in 1931 and it was in great shape. He was glad to see the ivory keys so white - my grandmother's secret of cleaning the keys with milk keeps them nice. He removed the action completely to get everything working smoothly again. It was amazing to see all the parts and lots of dust underneath - yikes. Once he replaced the action, he tuned it beautifully. The sound is wonderful. I was thrilled! Chris was wonderful, and he worked nonstop except for enjoying the latte I made for him."
