Shackleford Pianos are specialists in Piano restoration for antique and modern upright and grand pianos. The pianos we have restored can be found throughout the UK and Europe.

We offer a complete Piano Restoration service from our Macclesfield, Cheshire workshop. We restore modern and antique grand and upright pianos.

With our piano restoration we constantly research traditional piano manufacturing methods and also work with modern piano manufacturers to keep abreast of the latest technological developments. In this way our piano restoration projects meet the increasing technical demands of the modern pianist, who requires an instrument which can deliver extremes of colour, texture and dynamic, as well as the particular and varied demands of a wide range of grand pianos.

Our approach to piano restoration

We approach all piano restorations carefully and employ materials and techniques that are sympathetic to the period of the pianos manufacture.

Piano restoration is pointless and detrimental to an instrument's tonal character and value if modern parts and strings are used on older pianos. Some of the historically important pianos that Aaron Shackleford has either restored or helped to restore include the Australian Prime Minister's piano in Canberra, the Government House Steinway Model C piano in Melbourne, an early Broadwood Grand Piano in Henbury Hall, Cheshire, and early Australian piano built by Gerhard Reicher and early fortepianos once owned by Schubert and Chopin.

All piano restoration is wholly performed by us in our specialist piano restoration workshop in Macclesfield, Cheshire. Some U.K. companies give the impression that they restore pianos themselves when, in reality, they contract out the work to companies in the former Eastern Bloc. We believe that cheaper labour costs often result in an unacceptable standard of piano restoration and therefore choose to carry out all of our piano restoration work personally. We also believe that it is important to maintain a high level of skills in piano restoration in the U.K. and that this can only be achieved by undertaking the piano restoration process in a controlled, single workshop environment. Furthermore, we welcome visitors to our workshop at any time.

Our piano restoration business restores pianos from the whole of the UK and Europe and guarantee all of our work for a minimum of ten years (subject to conditions).
