Can anyone recommend a technician in Santa Fe (not Albuquerque). I am piano shopping and need someone competent to evaluate an older (40 yrs) used grand piano.

thanks!

Other than time or travel is there an issue with recommendations for techs around the Albuqureque area?
Just curious…

Andrew Gillispie

Andrew Gillispie's Web Site

He's my technician, and I recommend him highly. He's very busy, but give him a call and see when he can work you in. He lives here in Santa Fe. He's in ABQ three times a week working on UNM pianos. The other three days he does work for us private clients in Santa Fe.

Hope this helps!

Good information since at some point I may be moving my piano to Santa Fe.

Hi j&J. It's really just travel time. I am looking at used pianos and need someone a bit closer when I find something in Santa fe. I remember you did recommend someone in abq who had unfortunately relocated to the east coast. It would be useful to have names in abq too.

Aaron's. Thanks. I did speak with Andrew on the phone regarding a Mason Hamlin he was very helpful. Nice to get a recommendation for him. BTW. If you hear of any grands for sale please pm me. Thanks

Being new to this forum, I have so far gotten very helpful responses Fwiw

I do not have many connections in that area, but Robert Rothchilds is well known and is currently president of the PTG in that area. Here is his website.

I imagine that if he cannot help, he may know of someone who can.

Good Luck!

My piano teacher uses Robbie Rothchilds and likes him. Personally I'm very happy with Andrew Gillispie, but yes, Robbie is an alternative that some in Santa Fe use.
