Seiler Pianos

HISTORY AND BACKGROUND

Originally founded by piano builder Eduard Seiler in Eastern Europe, Seiler has been producing pianos since 1849. By the 1920s, Seiler was the largest piano manufacturer in all of Eastern Europe. After forced nationalization by the Polish government in 1945, the Seiler family fled Poland and would re-establish Seiler in Denmark by the mid-1950s, before finally settling in Germany in 1962. Seiler soon after developed a strong reputation for quality, German craftsmanship. Seiler continued to produce pianos in German and remained under family control until 2008 when the company was sold to Korean piano manufacturer Samick, who continues to own and operate Seiler today.

Prior to Samick’s acquisition, Seiler produced a single line of high-quality German uprights and grand pianos, which are still produced today as the SE series. In an attempt to compete at different price points, Samick expanded the Seiler offering to include two additional lines; the Eduard Seiler line which are manufactured in Indonesia with the same design as German-made instruments with some of the same high-quality components, meant to compete with entry-level Japanese options, and the Johannes Seiler line, with its’ own unique design, meant to compete at an entry-level price point.

Seiler’s German SE series uprights are offered in four sizes; the 45” SE-116, 48” Primus, 49” Konsole, and the 52” Consert. Grands are five sizes; the 5’6” Virtuoso, 6’2” Maestro, 6’10” Professional, 8’ Konzert, and the 9’2” full-sized concert grand, also referred to as the Konzert model. SE series pianos utilize Renner actions and hammers, beech bridges, and white spruce soundboards. SE grand pianos have duplex scale, and were recently redesigned with extended key lengths for greater playing control.

Eduard Seiler uprights are offered in two sizes; the 49” Primus and the 52” Konzert. Grands are also offered in two sizes; the 5’6” ED168 and the 6’2” ED186. Similar components to the German Seiler’s include partial Renner actions, white spruce soundboards (lower grade), and hornbeam action rails.

Johannes Seiler uprights are offered in five sizes; the 45.5” GS-116, 46.5” GS-247, 47” GS-118, 47.5 GS-121, and the 48.5” GS122. Grands are offered in three sizes; the 5’3” GS-160, 5’9” GS-175, and the 6’2” GS-186. These represent a unique “European style” design by Samick, and compete as a European sounding option in the entry-level market.
