The Watterson family have been part of the Melbourne piano industry since the late 1800's. Specialized skills of piano tuning and restoration have been passed on for 5 generations with younger family members undergoing this time honoured training today. The many aspects of our work include:

  • Piano tuning
  • Restringing,
  • Action restoration
  • Hammer replacement
  • Damper re-felting
  • Bushing repairs and all other important components.

Private piano restorations are perhaps the most enjoyable part of our work. In this process we rebuild and re-present family instruments which have given generations of service but now require restoration. These instruments go back to the families ready to give faithful service for years to come. This same care and attention goes into the variety of our second hand pianos available for sale, all carrying an unmatched guarantee.

  • “I am pleased to confirm that Len Watterson has competently tuned my G.Schwechten upright piano for over 30 years. During this period he has also renovated the instrument to my satisfaction. I am pleased to have the opportunity to attest for the personal integrity and technical competence of Len”

    Ken Broadbent

  • "I am no expert, but the big sound and tone of our instrument is a joy to hear. Our piano has passed through Len's caring hands more than once, and internally, 80 years old as it may be, it is absolutely pristine.”

    Tim Broome

  • "My Ronisch upright grand piano was meticulously restored, with strings and felts procured by Len, from the best sources and replaced with only a master's skill. With endless appreciation, thank you Len.”
