Testimonials

David Thomson knows my piano inside and out. He spent several months restoring it to its 1886 glory. Thanks to his knowledge, his meticulous effort and his attention to detail I now have a treasure. This was not a surprize. He had taken the same approach to servicing my previous instrument.

Jane Shutte, Short Hills, New Jersey

“We had an outstanding experience to Thomson Piano Works. David helped us locate a 1913 Steinway Piano and, with the skill of an old world craftsman, he and his team completely rebuilt the piano and refinished the mahogany case. The quality of the work was oustanding and the personal attention to detail and follow-up made for a wonderful experience. We wouldn’t think of choosing someone else for this type of work.”

Our experience in working with David has been enriching. From the time he introduced us to what would become our piano we have been impressed with his professionalism and concern for customer and instrument. He showed us in great detail what is involved in the rebuilding of an old piano and we felt we could trust him to do and excellent job.

“My brothers and I decided we wanted to get my dad’s piano (which had been badly damaged in a house fire) restored…David was responsive to questions, didn’t make me feel intimidated for not being a piano guru, and worked within our budget and time frame.  He was extremely flexible and professional.  We just got the piano back this week and my dad loved it!  I would go out of my way to use this business again.”
