I contacted Evan Tublitz from the Used Piano Center through the Piano Technicians Guild website, he is a Registered Piano Technician and his information was listed. I called him to inquire on a piano that I was interested in purchasing, a Steinway Model M Grand Piano. Evan Tublitz from the Used Piano Center told me that the piano I was purchasing although it was rebuilt by a reputable piano company said that the piano would fall apart in a matter of months. He tried to convince me that the Steinway Model M piano he had was the best Model M Steinway Grand Piano in the country. I went to look at the piano and the piano was a pile of junk. He said the action had been rebuilt and that was a lie, it was refurbished not rebuilt, he said it had new parts and the old original parts had been painted to look new. The piano had buzzing strings and was in poor condition, he tried to tell me that the piano was in pristine working order and that it would be even better in my home. After looking at the pianos he had in his store, I noticed that none of them was rebuilt like he said they was and the other thing I noticed was a letter on his desk from a complaint he received from another client. The letter said that he received payment for a Steinway Piano that he did not deliver and it has been over six months and he has not returned any phone calls to the customer about it. I called other piano stores in the area and they said that this guy sells junk and talks a good talk but only delivers crap pianos to his clients. Evan Tublitz RPT bragged how he worked for Steinway & Sons and when I called Steinway to verify this they told me he was a liar and has been saying that for years. He worked at Steinway for a couple of days and was fired. Evan Tublitz told me that he worked for Ibach piano company and he lied about that too. Half of the website he has is a lie and you should not trust this company. Evan tried to talk to me about other piano companies locally that have a poor reputation but it is certain that his is much worse and if you think about falling for his line of superior craftsmanship, think again. Buying a piano that has been cleaned up will not play like one that has been rebuilt and he is the biggest liar I have ever met. I contacted Steve Greenstein the president of the piano technicians guild in that area about what happened to me and he told me to buy a piano from him because he was an RPT. These two must be in cahoots with each other and they must exchange money for referrals.
