We have been restoring historical keyboard instruments since 1996. During that period we have restored most types of keyboard stringed instruments, such as clavichords, spinets, harpsichords, fortepianos, pyramid pianos, table pianos, bureau pianos, etc. We restored a large number of instruments for the National Museum (the Czech Museum of Music) for its exhibition „300 Years of the Piano“ held in 1999 under the auspices of UNESCO in 1999, and we are also restoring instruments comprehensively damaged in the disastrous floods of 2002, as well as other instruments of the Czech Museum of Music’s collection.We have also restored instruments for the West Bohemian Monument Preservation Institute, the Academy of Performing Arts (HAMU) and for private individuals in the Czech Republic and abroad.
