  • The Saga of Player Pianos
    The late 19th century witnessed the rise of the most important musical instrument of the time- the piano. The popularity of American music further boosted the demand for pianos, with more and more people desiring these instruments within the bounds of their homes.
  • Pianos: A Historical Peek-a-Boo!
    The word 'piano' is an Italian derivation of gravicèmbalo col piano e forte (literally harpsichord with soft and loud tone); later abbreviated from 'pianoforte'. Historical records credit the invention of the piano to a single individual named Bartolomeo Cristofori of Padua, Italy.
