BRANDS & MANUFACTURERS

The world of piano makers and their instruments is a fascinating and diverse one. We’ve assembled and curated hundreds of articles, videos, and comparisons into one of the largest consumer piano resources available anywhere – all to help you navigate today’s piano marketplace. 

All piano brands write-ups are factual summaries based on the most up-to-date information available. The following list of brands includes pianos which we sell, as well as those we don’t. This distinction is clearly indicated with a “Dealer” or “Info Only” tag next to each brand. No manufacturer has endorsed, paid for, directed or approved any of the available content.
