In the 1600s Bartolomeo Cristofori an Italian craftsman and genius inventor, created a musical instrument that would come to change the world. The piano. The new instrument had a distinct advantage over its predecessor, the harpsichord. Utilizing hammers instead of a plucking motion, the musician playing the piano is able to vary the level of sound, opening up a new world of artistic expression and musical possibility. Over the last 300 years, the piano has truly come to deserve its title as the ‘king of instruments’ due not only to its size, but its wide range of tone, incredible sound, and unique versatility.
Over the past centuries there have been hundreds of piano manufacturers that have come and gone, but many continue on. Names like Steinway & Sons, Mason & Hamlin, Yamaha, Kawai & Baldwin continue to represent the fine tradition of craftsmanship that revolves around the creation of the piano.
