To Know!

Bartolomeo Cristofori (1655-1731) built the first practical piano that could be played either softly or loudly, with an escapement mechanism for the hammers, in the early 1700's. The name Piano is an abbreviation of Cristofori's original name for the instrument Piano et Forte.

Technicians use the terms Reconditioned, Renovated, Rebuilt, Restored to describe the results of various types of major repair jobs.
To Rebuild means to do major work, usually including replacing the pinblock, restringing, repairing the soundboard, and installing new hammers and all perishable action parts.
To Restore means to return the piano as close as possible to what it was when it was new.
