PianoDisc & QRS - Service & Installations
I am factory certified to service, upgrade, and install these systems.
Both QRS & PianoDisc offer state of the art player piano systems. These systems install, nearly invisibly, onto a piano and are controlled by smart devices. These systems are capable of realistic playback including dynamics and pedals. These systems optionally come with speakers to play accompaniment with the piano.
Upgrade kits are available for older models to upgrade the system to modern playback and device control Both companies also make devices that optically measure the keys. The optical signal is converted to a .midi output.

Old Fashioned Roll Pianos.
Many folks are shocked to learn that the old roll driven player pianos are actually powered by creating a vacuum. These systems were sold by a number of manufacturers beginning about 1910. These old pianos were the center of attention and entertainment focal point of many homes.
CAUTION: LEAD DANGER! These pianos are put together with lead piping for the air channels. With age the lead oxidizes into a white powder which is expelled into the air when the player is operated. This lead oxide is toxic. When restored the lead is removed and rubber hoses are used in place of the lead.
I will work on these pianos but:
- I will service the piano itself
- I will not service the player system unless it has been re-tubed to remove lead.
- I restore pianos - I use another specialist to restore the player actions.
