Greg Rollinson is a fifth generation Piano Tuner & Technician. He is also the owner of Lincoln Bros which was established in 1924. The Rollinsons are renowned for their technical knowledge of pianos that dates back to the early 1800’s. The business prides itself on skills passed down five generations over more than 164 years.
This wealth of knowledge begins with Urias Cobley Rollinson in England in 1848, his knowledge was passed on to his son, Uri Jim Rollinson, who died in King Williams Town (Cape Town), South Africa, after working and training with Polliaks in the Music Industry. Uri, in turn, trained his son, Thomas Edward Rollinson, in the piano trade when it was brought to Johannesburg.
Thomas had two sons, James Edward Rollinson and Robert Hugh Rollinson, who both followed in his footsteps and become part of the piano heritage that they owned. James and Robert worked for Lincoln Bros in the 1930’s & 40’s. Robert eventually retired and returned to England and the piano industry lost one of their very best piano technicians, James Edward Rollinson, when he passed away in 2011.
James had two daughters and one son; Gregory Guy Rollinson, who started training in pianos as early as 13 years of age. Today, he is the owner of Lincoln Bros and in addition to the knowledge that Greg has gained, a number of Lincoln Bros staff members have been in the industry for 25 years or more.
The Rollinson and Lincoln Bros name is a household name, due to the fact that the primary focus has always been the high standard of workmanship on all piano maintenance and restoration, thus enabling Lincoln Bros to offer a five-year guarantee on all workmanship.
