Walter, who had played a major role in the work done at Conn, purchased this piano company. His intention from the very start was to combine technological advances with his own extensive engineering background and mechanical ability to produce the finest quality pianos in the market. Upon taking control, he immediately cut back production to ensure careful attention to detail and to quality standards. The company’s growth since that time has been specifically directed toward improving and maintaining quality. Walter Piano Co. is a family owned and operated company.Being an instrument of real musical expression, the piano must also be an instrument of exceptional beauty, expressive of the aesthetic values of the home in which it is placed. The Walter piano designers pay particular attention to both traditional styling and the best furniture trends. Expert design is then combined with careful and painstaking craftsmanship to produce pianos with beauty characteristic of the finest home furnishings.The results of these efforts are the Charles R. Walter Studio Console and Studio pianos. Charles Walter has given these pianos his own name as the Signature of Quality in order to emphasize his personal interest in assuring and maintaining the highest quality in design and in production standards. These pianos, introduced in the summer of 1975, are acclaimed to be among the finest-quality vertical pianos on the market today. The 43” console and the 45” studio are noted for the 48” Ao speaking length, 56”x 37” (14.5 square feet) solid Sitka Spruce soundboard, full-size studio direct blow action, and the W-48 scale, designed to incorporate the best in harmonicity characteristics.Other features that point to the quality of this piano include the cross-banded and laminated 29-ply Delignit pin block, five solid Sitka Spruce back posts (2”x3”), back construction to meet school specifications, and five-ply lumber core construction throughout.The 6’4” Walter Grand Piano was added to the company’s piano line in 1996. The piano features a Renner action, Kluge keys, and an all-hard-maple rim and frame construction. It is available traditionally styled in ebony, mahogany, cherry, oak, and walnut finishes. A Chippendale-style is available in cherry and mahogany. The grands are handcrafted instruments with direct production oversight and involvement by Walter family members. Custom features make construction of the Walter Grand similar to the methods used in restoring fine instruments of vintage quality."

They are made of all leather, leather trim, and all cordura for all kinds of musical instruments, especially brasswinds and woodwinds. Most Gard bags can be carried in the hand, over the shoulder and as a backpack.Recently Talwar came out with a mid bag suspension system (patent pending). In ordinary bags the music instrument rests on the bottom of the gig bag. In Gard bags with the mid bag suspension system the music instrument is suspended in mid air inside the gig bag, without touching any of the inside walls of the gig bag. The mid bag suspension system provides possibly better protection than any other gig bag or hard case.Gard Wheelies or Trolley Gig Bags: Similar to the very popular pull-behind luggage, these bags will prove a delight for the doubler or any players wanting to remove the weight of their horns from their back or shoulders. The bags are made with the same quality, craftsmanship, and attention to detail as the Gard gig bags. Each bag features an outer shell of leather or durable cordura nylon and is well padded inside. The wheel rack is lightweight and can be lifted effortless from a car or onto a bus. Wheelie bags also feature a telescopic handle to allow easy adjustment to the height of the player. All wheelie bags can also be carried as a backpack.Other Bags: Talwar makes over three million bags, cases, and covers for musical instruments especially for recorders, drumsticks, mallets, and cymbals.Acura Violin Family Accessories: Hybrid Pegs: Hybrid pegs made of ebony shafts and high-grade plastic are unmatched in quality and value for entry-level instruments. Black plastic head pegs cannot be distinguished from ebony. Metal pegs - Acura metal pegs made from aluminum or brass reduce the force required to turn a violin peg. No more aching fingers, no sticking pegs, no string adjusters. Ideal for children, senior citizens, and music teachers.

Email: schimmel88keys@aol.com.Schimmel produces high-quality pianos. It has a proficient, dedicated staff, a well established partnership with its worldwide dealer network, and extensive investments in modern production facilities. All of this forms a sound basis for business.Schimmel was founded on May 2, 1885, by Wilhelm Schimmel as a modest, one-man operation in a small rented workshop in Neuschoenefeld, near Leipzig. In the following years the company grew rapidly, necessitating the hiring of employees and several relocations to larger premises in Leipzig. Before long, Schimmel pianos were winning top awards. Schimmel was appointed as purveyor to the courts of the Grand Duke of Saxe-Weimar (1899) and the King of Romania (1909), honors seldom conferred on newly established firms.In 1927 the presidency of the company was passed on to Wilhelm Arno Schimmel, the founder’s son. Two years later the company was relocated to Braunschweig. World War II briefly interrupted piano production, but the company soon resumed operations, and by 1948 Schimmel pianos were being exhibited at the trade fair in Hannover.In 1961, following the sudden death of Wilhelm Arno Schimmel, his son, Nikolaus Wilhelm Schimmel, assumed the presidency.In 1995 Schimmel celebrated its 110th year in business. In four generations this family enterprise has grown from the most modest of beginnings to one of Europe’s leading piano manufacturers. Approximately 65 percent of Schimmel production is for export.The Schimmel family tradition will be continued in the fourth generation. Hannes Schimmel-Vogel, husband of Viola Schimmel, followed Nikolaus W. Schimmel in his position as president beginning in July 2003. Despite a worldwide slump in piano sales, the company was able to further strengthen its position in the industry. Probably the most important contributing factor to Schimmel’s success is the dedication to cater to an exclusive clientele with excellent pianos, a clientele that is looking for top quality in sound, workmanship, and touch, exquisite cabinetry, and, above all, a lasting investment, and who is willing and in a position to pay for these things. In addition to the market proven Schimmel Classic Series Instruments, Schimmel introduced in the years 2000 to 2007 its new top Series Schimmel Konzert. The instruments are based on two decades of intensive research and development. The result is the so called Schimmel-Trilogy, which is a world wide unique design concept in the Piano Industry. The Konzert Series distinguishes between the Trilogy I, which includes the Models K 280 - K 256 - K 230, and the Trilogy II, which covers the models K 213 - K 189 - K 169. The main idea is that as many design ideas, in particular the action and scale design, are transferred from the full size grand piano K 280 also into the smaller instruments of the series. Following this idea, touch and sound of all Schimmel Konzert Instruments are related to the full size Konzert grand piano from Schimmel. In addition there are three Schimmel Konzert uprights K 132 - K 125 - K 122 available, which also follow the design idea of the grand piano. Were possible, the design of the grand pianos was transferred in the upright pianos.In February 2003 Schimmel also began producing under the new brand name “Vogel by Schimmel.” These grand pianos for the American market are made in a company-owned plant in Kalisz, Poland. There, under close technical supervision, instruments under the brand name Vogel will be produced. In 2005 introduced a new product series called May Berlin. May Berlin represents a solid and robust piano series targeted at the educational lever of the market and affordable for those with a modest budget, providing an excellent alternative to both, students and family use due to the favourable price performance ratio. This is made possible through the manufacture of these instruments in China, always according to Schimmel specifications and standards. All instruments subsequently receive their finishing touches and undergo a strict final quality control in Braunschweig. This guarantees that customers are purchasing an instrument of value for which Schimmel vouches with its name.The brand name Schimmel will be reserved for the top-of-the-line instruments from Braunschweig. With this step, Schimmel will be achieving multiple goals: the strengthening of its dealers, the profitable expansion of its line of products, and the strengthening of the production site in Braunschweig.Despite the important role played by automatic machines and computers in increasing production efficiency, Schimmel still performs most of the quality building operations by handcraftsmanship in order to maintain its worldwide reputation for excellence.Other important factors are the creativity of the Schimmel management and the motivation and high training standard of its production staff. In the German piano industry, the apprentice/journeyman/master craftsman system still prevails. The supervisors at Schimmel are referred to as “Meister” because they are master craftsmen."

Web: www.sagamusic.com, Richard L. Keldsen, president. “Saga, The Source” accurately describes this company. Founded in 1974, Saga revolutionized the music trades as the first large-scale manufacturer and importer of high-quality banjos, mandolins, and guitars. The company has also grown to become one of the world’s leading suppliers of bowed and fretted instruments, as well as by supporting its instrument product lines with bags, cases, and other related parts and accessories. Saga’s representatives have traveled throughout the world often to obscure, remote destinations in search of skilled proven manufacturing sources to meet the company’s quality requirements and supply demands. Many members of Saga’s international staff come from the ranks of various string ensembles and bands. Their first- hand experience, years of traditional musical education, and keen working knowledge of string and fretted instruments, enable them to provide the best service possible and to contribute to the design specifications and construction of Saga’s instrument lines. Focusing initially on the Bluegrass, Old-Time Traditional, and Folk Music markets, Saga has successfully established itself as an internationally known company and continues to develop and market highly successful, quality- made, competitively priced products, appealing to Saga’s original markets as well as to the traditional School Music and Suzuki markets. With 2007 marking the company’s 26th year as a pioneer in the growing market of orchestral string instruments, Saga continually raises the bar for expectations of what a superb hand- carved, solid-wood instrument at very accessible prices should be by leading the way with such brands as Cremona, Anton Breton, H. Siegler, F. Cervini, H. Siegler, and J. LaSalle all favorites with knowledgeable teachers and dealers everywhere. Saga is also the premier source for popular fretted instrument brands like the original Saga banjos, banjo kits, Saga electric guitar and bass kits, a full line of Mahalo ukuleles, Legendary Gold Star banjos, America’s favorite Kentucky mandolins, Trinity College guitars, Celtic-style mandolins and concertinas, Regal resophonic wood- body and metal-body Duolian and Tricone-style guitars, J. Navarro Spanish-inspired clasical guitars, Valencia student classical guitars, Durango Vintage Series steel-string guitars, Gitane Gypsy-Jazz guitars featuring signature instruments for some of today’s hottest players (like John Jorgenson, Lulo Reinhardt, and Stephane Wrembel, Jan Akkerman and Dorado Schmidt to name a few,) and the world renowned line of Blueridge guitars, supported by legendary musicians in the fields of Bluegrass and mainstream popular music throughout the world. Saga’s bowed and fretted instrument brands are supported by a wide selection of high-quality parts and accessories with names line Superior, Golden Gate, Boulder, and TraveLite cases. "
