Made in Germany.

A valuable promise.

For generations, this slogan has been a synonym throughout the world for excellence and quality originating from Germany. The same applies to the grand and upright pianos from the production facilities of manufacturers of pianoforte instruments based in Germany.

Piano manufacture is also a European cultural asset from the top of its class. Characterised by the European Union, Made in Europe is therefore the logical extension of the slogan, Made in Germany.
