MADE IN GERMANY OR CHINA?
In the past decades, many piano manufacturers ceased productions, which meant that brands changed ownership. For example, a brand manufactured in Germany until 1950 may have switched production in 1990 to China. To provide accurate information, we indicate such a change. You will be aware of whether your piano was manufactured in its original factory location or rather in a different one. Choose a brand and enter the piano serial number.
MANAGED BY PIANO TECHS & BUILDERS
In addition to our expertice, we have been making a huge effort since 1992 collecting the necessary information, by contacting many international museums, manufacturers, rebuilders, technicians, collectors and piano owners. We would like to thank all the above supporting the development of the Piano Age Calculator.
THE ONE AND ONLY
All the data is stored on our online servers. This allows real-time user access, and guarantees accurate and up to date information. The database includes more than 2000 of piano brands from the past and present and the lists are not finalized but rather constantly updated and corrected with new information when available.
GRAND OR UPRIGHT PIANO?
There is a separation between the upright and grand pianos in the database due to the serial numbers. Serial numbers do not necessarily match with the same brand and the same stance of the piano.
