The international fame that Pianos Bolduc has built over time rests first and foremost on its expertise in piano restoration, as well as in the manufacturing of high-quality soundboards and pinblocks.
The design of specialized tools was progressively developed starting in the 1980s. André and Christian Bolduc have always enjoyed creating revolutionary tools and devices aimed at rebuilding pianos with more ease, proficiency, and accuracy. Concrete demonstrations during conferences at home and abroad have made clear that those devices and components satisfy a real need among technicians.
Since 1985, Pianos Bolduc has exported the BolducBlock pinblock, renowned throughout the world. This component has a primary function - that of retaining the tension of the entire set of strings. The laminated panels are glued together to form five crossed maple layers, thus ensuring stability and durability.

Made of selected first grade Canadian white spruce, our soundboards follow a rigorous manufacturing process that ensures stability.

It is scientifically proven that white spruce represents the wood type that best matches all the criteria for the construction of premium soundboards.
