Good pianos- unusual brands
« on: May 11, 2004, 09:49:33 AM »
Hey everyone,
                      There's all this talk about all the known-to- be-good brands. What about all the pianos that aren't well known.

Who has a piano that they love, which isn't well known?
What's the brand? Where's it made? Why do you like it?

Pick up the Pierce Piano Atlas (a book) and you will see thousands of piano brands... most no longer in production. The Atlas does not rate the pianos.

Pick up Larry Fine's "The Piano Book" and you will see ratings of pianos from many brands (won't be as comprehensive as the Atlas, mostly covers brands still in production).
