Rolland
« on: December 14, 2015, 10:25:14 AM »
Hello :),
 we have got an old piano at home. Piano Rolland. But when I tried to find something about it on the internet, I couldn't - it seems like brand Rolland doesn't exist at all! There is just Roland with single l. Could anyone tell, if we have just some fake Roland, or if Rolland is some brand, that doesn't exist anymore? It really puzzles me :D
Thank you very much!!

Rolland with two Ls is a new one on me. It probably dates from the good old days when there were many hundreds of piano makers both big and small. Probably Rolland was one of the many smaller ones that are now long forgotten. Post some photos and we might get an idea of how old it is.

Edit: Rolland looks like a French name. I looked up some lists of old French makers from the 19th and 20th centuries, but didn't have any luck.
