|In the last several years the main focus for Gene Korolev, RPT, president and master rebuilder of PIANO SOLUTIONS XXI, was to technologically improve the process for the restoration and maintenance of pianos. To achieve this goal, he invented various tools and devices. Each tool was designed to perform a specialized task with precision and ease in an effort to exceed even the lofty standards set by old-world craftsman. The tools were created by hand, to be used by hand.
A strong passion to create precision devices helped Gene achieve long-term stability in piano performance. The invention also helped with the development of an exclusive-line of restored grand pianos. With over 30,000 piano parts that need attention, it’s necessary to achieve uniformity in piano restoration. By using devices to complete a specific task, Gene is able to achieve precision in piano restoration process and thereby achieve near-perfection.
