Amelia Mouse Piano

$3,000 goal

Campaign created 11 months ago
For three years Amelia has brought music and joy to crowds of all ages. She's been awarded three consecutive Editor's Choice awards at Maker Faire from 2015-17, appeared at several art and music events, and been to local schools to inspire children in science.

I've been overjoyed to bring Amelia out whenever I can, but over the years it's taken a toll. The piano has held up marvelously for being 90+ years old, but  through numerous tunings, moving, and multiple 8 hour days at play, the mechanics and strings have started to show their age. At least year's Maker Faire she popped a string during tuning, and could really benefit from a teardown, deep clean, restring, and resurfacing of the wood.

Professional restringing is costly, but without it the current strings will continue to degrade with each performance until she's unplayable.

I could use the funds to purchase a new piano, but then I'd have to convert that one and start the process over again. I'd like to retain as much of this piano as I can.

I appreciate all the support from my friends and followers, and look forward to many more years with Amelia, hopefully taking her across the country, and perhaps the world.
