Iain Gordon

Piano Services Ltd.


I hope over the following pages you will get a full insight into the services I can offer.

I am an independent Steinway & Sons trained Piano Tuner/Technician specialising in the servicing, rebuilding, tuning and toning of fine German grand pianos, and with 40years experience you can be assured of the highest levels of craftsmanship. Based in south London I am available for work throughout the UK and internationally. Please contact me if you have a Steinway grand piano for sale, I always have customers who want good Steinway pianos.

My work as Piano Technician

My work as a piano technician includes all aspects of piano servicing, from tuning and check-over, to servicing on site, which can be between one and five days, and full grand piano restoration at the workshop, which is around four to six weeks work. Re-polishing can also be arranged.

I am resident technician at London’s Henry Wood Hall where I look after the Steinway concert grand pianos which are used by visiting concert artists and all the major orchestras on a daily basis for recording and rehearsals. The newest Steinway D here No 501630 circa 1986 has been used on many recordings for EMI, Sony, Hyperion and others. I’m also service contract holder at Trinity Laban conservatoire and have also worked for ten years at London’s Southbank centre on their fleet of Steinway concert grands.

I try to keep a small stock of very carefully selected Steinway grand pianos for sale. Please see the Steinway Piano Sales page.

“Iain Gordon seems to have achieved an unusually high level of accomplishment in the field of piano servicing and voicing. Since fitting a new action to our 25 year old Steinway D it has been used regularly by many of the Worlds finest pianists. The remarks and feedback have been almost 100% positive and to name a few, Andras Schiff loves it, Manny Ax wanted to take it on tour, Murray Perahia sat down to warm up and didn’t get up for 30 minutes, when his rehearsal time was over he stayed in the hall and continued practicing…clear approval!! As Simon Perry director of Hyperion Records says, it’s unusual to find such a good resident piano in a recording venue and especially one that top artists are happy to use!! Well done Iain!”

Henry Wood Hall

The job you did on my piano was utterly outstanding. It’s a totally different instrument! When you said “I’ve done some tonal work on it” I didn’t expect it to sound quite so amazing.

Many thanks!
