The craftsmanship and passion you bring to the restoration process is wonderful.T.P., Birmingham, Michigan
The piano is great! I like it more and more the longer I play it. Everybody remarks about the beautiful singing tone. My piano tuner says he has never worked on an instrument with as much sustaining resonance. Thank you for the care and craftsmanship you put into it.C.B., Iowa City, Iowa

You have earned your reputation as being the best piano restorer in Michigan.M.A., Zealand, Michigan
Words cannot adequately express our joy and delight with our piano. The finish is exquisite, and its tone is perfect.
The sound of the instrument is magnificent and I'm still ecstatic about the purchase!
I'm absolutely thrilled over my new Steinway. It is truly one of the Great things in my life, and a very great source of joy and pleasure for me and the whole family. Everything about it is superb and I'm even surprising myself how much better I'm playing.
The piano is a delight now. I am especially pleased with the way it responds to quiet, delicate playing, nearly impossible before. Thank you for your good work.
Neither our choir director or I could believe our eyes much less our ears when we saw and I played that magnificent Steinway grand which now reposes so elegantly in our reception room.
Wow! Were we ever thrilled with the sound you have put into the piano! You have been so kind and helpful in every way.
I have appreciated many times the skilled craftsmanship that has gone into our piano. Our people are very satisfied, and our pianists are especially thrilled with the results.
I want to thank you so very much for repairing my piano. Now the piano has its original lovely tones and is an inspiration to play.
You always turn every piano into an even better piano than it previously was.
I had been discouraged about the piano, thinking little could be done. However, the new hammers and restorative work have made, in effect, a "new" instrument for us. Now we are very happy with the sound we are getting and feel that the investment made in your work will give us years of satisfied returns.
The piano sounds really beautiful – it's an inspiration.
I am delighted with my piano which you and your craftspeople have so beautifully restored.
Thank you from the heart for the beautiful work you did with my piano. It would be easy to list 100 different ways in which it has helped me and my students in our musical pursuits. It's a beautiful miracle.
The beautiful workmanship – all new "innards" and keyboard and the wood above it, is really appreciated.
I played the piano this afternoon and found it sounding very beautiful. You are a master at your work.
Thank you, thank you for our beautiful piano. It is beautiful to look at, and most especially, to play. What a pleasure! Thank you for taking the time to "do the job right".
I love my piano! Thank you so much for creating such a marvelous instrument for me. This Reeder 1907 Steinway has a beautiful resonate singing tone, incredible response and is also physically beautiful to look at.
We are truly enjoying the piano; the sound is luscious, and it looks beautiful as well!
We just had to thank you again for the absolutely outstanding work and care you did on our piano! It is beautiful beyond our expectations and we've enjoyed the sound daily since you delivered it to our new home.
The time had come to either replace my 100-year-old Mason-Hamlin BB, or rebuild it. I tried hundreds of new and used pianos, and visited at least a dozen rebuilders. I had visited Reeder many years ago, and was completely amazed at the quality of his used and rebuilt pianos, but that was before all that shopping, and 10 or 15 years ago. Was his work really that good?
I returned, and there on the shop floor was a gorgeous rebuilt 100-year-old Mason-Hamlin BB! I couldn't stop playing it, even though I loved several other pianos he had there. I might have bought it, but it was black and the one I own is mahogany and matches my other furniture, so I sent my mahogany monster off to him for rebuilding, trusting him to do as beautiful a job on mine as the one in the shop.
My trust was well-placed. I have had the piano back for a year now; plenty of time for defects to become apparent. There have been none. I am completely delighted with the work, from the finish to the tone to the action. The regulation is where most rebuilt pianos disappoint, and this has been absolutely spectacular. After hundreds of hours of playing, it remains wonderfully responsive, even and easy to play.
Mr. Reeder has a small crew of long-time employees, but insists on transporting the pianos himself and observing the local moving crew. My 1100-lb piano made it from Lansing, Michigan to Chicago and up to my 3rd floor apartment without a hitch. I'm sure Mr. Reeder's presence had something to do with that.Melissa L., Chicago, Illinois Yelp Review
