What Are Some Popular Piano Brands?

Most popular piano brands are manufactured by American, German or Austrian companies, including Steinway and Sons, Baldwin, Mason and Hamlin, Bechstein and Bosendorfer. However, several Asian companies such as Yamaha and Kawai, both founded in Japan, are renowned for their mass-produced grand pianos and excellent electronic keyboard offerings.

Other popular piano companies include Australia's Stuart and Sons, which was founded in 1990 and has become a mainstay in the music world due to its carefully handcrafted luxury pianos, which are not marketed to large audiences, and Italy's Fazioli, which was founded by Paolo Fazioli in 1978. Charles R. Walter, another popular American piano manufacturer, produced its first piano in 1975.
