“I am so grateful to you for your superb attention to my pianos, when needed. You have my utmost confidence and trust”.
Professor at Royal College of Music
Iain Gordon who rebuilt my historic 1913 Hamburg Steinway O grand is a master-craftsman who lives for his trade. In a throw away culture where to accept less than the best is promoted by confident marketing and meretricious publicity, Iain is one of the few who practices a craft in which there are no compromises. A piano is as good as its last tuning and maintenance. Iain not only rebuilds and restores with infinite care, but he takes on a good piano as a member of his family. It is a very personal thing, and a source also of personal pride. A relation ensues in which player, craftsman and the music itself sustain each other in the service of art

Over many years I have sought a piano technician who really cares, who can fix those little niggling problems, who can advise on piano mechanics and the possibilities of improvement in my pianos – and who will tune them as perfectly as it is possible to do it. To find all these skills in one piano technician is very difficult but Iain Gordon has them all. He is totally reliable, thorough, patient, passionate about the subject – something we all share as musicians – and brilliant.
His charges are reasonable and certainly justified – and his aftercare is second to none.
I would not hesitate to recommend his services to anyone with a piano they love and use. Iain Gordon can maintain it to its highest potential.
