French Polishing in Devon, including piano hire, piano repair and pianos for sale


High quality finishes on everything from mid-century modern to priceless antiques

With over 25 years’ experience in restoring pianos, William Young offers a top class French polishing service.

Casework repairs can also be undertaken; we can supply replacement mouldings or music desks, for example. William uses traditional techniques to ensure a finish which is as close a match as possible to the original, both in terms of colour and sheen level.

Polishing can be independent of other work on your piano or can be undertaken as part of a more extensive restoration. From sun fading on a much loved family heirloom to the full restoration of a fire damaged concert grand piano, William offers a professional and reliable service. Both modern lacquer and traditional finishes are available, although most clients prefer to stay loyal to their piano’s original French polished finish.

With many years’ experience in working with top name pianos including Steinway, Bechstein, Bluthner and Bosendorfer, William works closely with insurers and piano dealers as well as private clients. He is relied upon by numerous customers throughout the UK to sensitively and carefully restore or rescue the patina that is such an integral part of a treasured instrument.

Over 25 years' 
experience with Steinway, Bechstein, Blüthner and Bösendorfer
