BOSTON PIANO MAKERS

Home of a Hundred Makers
 

The Sohmer Piano Company built some of the finest pianos in American history. Sohmer was established in 1872 by Hugo Sohmer and K. Kuder when they purchased the Marshall & Mittauer Piano Factory in New York. Sohmer was one of the largest and most prestigious piano makers of the 19th and early 20th Centuries, and they offered a full line of squares, grands, uprights, and player pianos.

Sohmer was known for their use of elaborate woods and had a reputation for exquisite craftsmanship. Sohmer is one of only a handful of American piano manufacturers to survive and keep the company in the family throughout the 20th Century. Sohmer was sold to Pratt Reed & Company in 1982, then it was sold again subsequently.

Sohmer was out of production for a few years in the 1990s, but the prestigious old name is being produced again today.
