R Gors And Kallmann Piano Serial Numbers

Pianos also have other numbers printed on them such as part numbers and many other pianos do not have a serial number at all. Many pianos will have a 4, 5 or 6 digit serial number to identify the age of the piano. Using this number, along with the manufacturer, the age of the piano can sometimes be determined. The areas to look for these numbers vary from each company but here are some common places to look along with some photos.

R Gors And Kallmann Piano Serial Numbers


3. Grand piano serial numbers are placed in many areas as the photos show. There are seven examples but your serial number placement could be in yet a different location and may require some searching.

Piano serial numbers identify the (1) age of your piano, the (2)piano's year of manufacture, as well as (3) the circumstancessurrounding the production of your piano, including factory history,manufacturing processes, and company ownership and oversight.

5) Immediate interior [front]: On the back of the [a] keyslip (long wooden ledge, runs along the front/bottom of the piano's keys. The serial number is often hidden and stamped on the other side, facing the keys). On the front of the [b] action frame (after the keyslip is removed), or stamped on [c] one or both of the cheek blocks, viewed to the right and left of the piano's keyboard.

On older pianos, you may find 3-5 screws, underneath the keyslip, that will need to be removed (or, simply lift up, if no screws are present) to view the action frame. The serial number may be stamped on the front of the frame's wooden base, immediately under the keys.

To recap: the piano's serial number when it isn't immediately visible near the 200+ tuning pins or etched onto the soundboard, may be hidden, here (see the video, above, at 3:55 to prceed #1-4; please proceed with caution):

The Pierce Piano Atlas, 12th Edition now in hardcoverformat, provides a wealth of information about the piano manufacturingindustry. Over 12,000 piano names are included, some dating back to theearly eighteen hundreds. This guide provides references to serialnumbers, dates of manufacture, factory locations, a brief history ofmany manufacturers and other pertinent information.

This is a partial list of piano manufacturers. Most piano professionals have access to detailed information about these brands using a Piano Atlas to reference serial numbers, which are used to determine a piano's age using the year a piano was built. This information is often used in piano appraisals.

Wonderful quality German pianos, always worthy of rebuilding, still with parts available that can make an almost new piano out of an old one. Grands and uprights were made, although it is the grands that you see most often, especially the 6ft3in boudoir grand. Great to work on, great to tune, always good news. They had a quality wobble post war before reunification with some questionable quality pianos (in comparison to the pre-war years) but they are now back in original family ownership and are making pianos albeit in much smaller numbers. A laid-back mellow tone makes these a lovely piano for homes and in the professional circles a piano well suited to accompaniment. Generally, too light in the touch for concert pianists, but very lovely to play nonetheless. Highly recommended.

Korean piano maker. Builder of mass-produced good value grand and upright pianos. Most of the time you would, however, not realise you were playing on one as they rarely have the Samick name on them in the UK. I have seen a variety of names on these pianos but the most often seen name in this area is Reid-Sohn. This is the name put on by Reids pianos in London and you will find these pianos in great numbers. Not a bad piano at all and a good second-hand buy. 350c69d7ab
