Work in Progress

Beyer Square Piano 1777

Horniman Museum, London

​In 2019 we finished the restoration of an Adam Beyer square piano of 1777 for the Horniman Museum in Dulwich, London. This instrument was bought with lottery funding from the Finchcocks collection and from September this year it has been used for concerts, along with 5 other early keyboard instruments, in what is called their ‘hear it live’ series.

Beck Square Piano 1780

Australian First Fleet Piano

We are proud to have been chosen to be the restorers of this historically important instrument. Originally belonging to the surgeon on one of the ships in the first fleet, it landed in Botany Bay in 1788. It now belongs to WAAPA-Edith Cowan University in Perth, Australia and is being restored to playing condition for use in their extensive early keyboard collection.
