Key-Sure to the Rescue

Happy New Year!

Woop woop.

Looks like 2018 is going to be quite a year for us. After several months flailing about, trying to find anyone who could help us figure out the size of piano wire we need, and supply it, we have a MASSIVE -

- for Key-Sure Pianos in Durban, South Africa. They have really been incredible. A father and son team, Kishore and Keeran Chotkan, who got in contact with us after hearing about our plight. Kishore told us the size of strings we'd need without a moment's hesitation, then went off and worked out who could supply a full set. 

This is what we always hoped someone could do, but what none of the major suppliers we contacted could accomplish.

We're now at the stage where we're working out how best to get the strings here - what's the cheapest method - and we're hoping this might be the start of a long and fruitful friendship. Key-Sure have over thirty years of experience refurbishing, repairing and maintaining pianos. We've got a lot to learn from them.
