Nashville Piano Rescue builds custom stage shells.  The biggest advantages to custom shells over a stripped out ex piano is that it will be lighter regardless of whether the iron plate has been removed or not and any width keyboard can be used.  In an ex- piano you are limited to keyboards that are 54 inches wide or less.

Our custom shells have a standard keyboard tray width of 60 inches.   Uprights are normally 24 inches deep x 44 inches tall by 64.75 wide.  We have many different types of upright shells that we build, including regular uprights, double ender uprights ( two player positions) narrow uprights for short keyboards, double stacked keyboard models etc.

We also offer custom grand shells in any length  however the keyboard width will always normally be 60 inches as standard, we can make it narrower but we need to know in advance. We also need to know if you want an opening top, Spade or French provincial or some other type of legs, music desk or a functioning electric 3 pedal lyre. 

Prices normally don't  include shipping rates for the lower 48 states and these rates change daily, There are tariffs involved if shipping to a church or music venue , sometimes if the delivery is within 500 miles we will hand deliver and set up the shells in person to avoid those tariffs for the customer.

We are getting ready to bring out  a few more custom shells including 3 types of collapsible uprights and a Harpsichord mini grand style shell for those that want something different.

All shells are paid in full prior to construction via cashiers check only.

Piano Shell / Movie Prop / Store Info

A quick note on piano shells.  Measure your keyboard width and look at the widths of the shells we have before calling.  99% of the time your keyboard width will exceed the maximum width of a piano shell we may have.

If you are building your own shell from an old piano measure that first otherwise you will spend days of time for nothing.

There is a two week lead time on any custom shell work that we may have to do.  We do not have time to rent and transport shells to locations.  They are for sale and we no longer do rush jobs for anyone. 

All custom work through this shop is non refundable.  This goes for refinishing and shop time. Unless we've done business in the past work is paid for up front in advance.

CONSULTATION:  If you are a production company, recording artist or other individual looking for specs, using our products for TV commercials, video shoots etc, wanting us to haul our products off to be weighed, crated, shipped or any other type of billable time the consultation fee is 100.00 per hour minimum.

Props :  Props differ from shells in that they still have the factory keys that work in place.  They have the false light weight ( see pics) rear on them with the fake sound board ribs etc.  These can also be chopped or customized. 

The listed price on shell's do not  include crating or shipping.  Due to US tariffs ( taxes added after shipping) we will no longer be incurring these costs and it will be the responsibility of the buyer to have the shell packaged / crated and shipped.
