The Handcrafted Pianos
Originally, all pianos were hand-made. Communities took pride in the individual designs and unique tonal qualities of their local instruments. Even as automation made piano building cheaper and more accessible to the masses, the handcrafted piano companies thrived. Focusing on uncompromising quality, the finest woods and materials, generations of skilled artisans, and proprietary designs, handcrafted piano companies built their reputations on quality, individuality and investment value.
Today, these companies continue to build the finest pianos in the World in the traditional way: by hand. Grade 1 companies believe that the best pianos can’t be constructed with robotic welding arms and automated production lines. They are built with human hands for other human hands to play.

Walter. Every year, we select the brands that offer our clients the finest playing and sounding instruments at prices they won’t find anywhere else. Guaranteed.
