1,608 "VITO, a division of Conn-Selmer, Inc." "P.O. Box 310, Elkhart IN 46515-0310. Tel: (574) 522-1675. Fax: (574) 295-0334. Email: custserv@conn-selmer.com. Web: www.conn-selmer.com. The history of Vito band instruments, dates to the last months of World War II and a chance meeting between Léon Leblanc and Vito Pascucci.Born in Kenosha, Vito Pascucci showed a marked interest in music and played cornet in the Kenosha High School band. He became fascinated with the construction and design of musical instruments and learned their repair as a summer apprentice at the Frank Holton Company and later operated an instrument-repair shop at his brother’s music store.In 1943 Pascucci was called into the armed forces. His instrument-repair skills were rewarded when he was assigned as a trumpeter and repairman to Army Field Bands, then to the Army Air Corps Band, led by Glenn Miller. He began with the Miller band in New Haven, Connecticut, then traveled with them to Europe. Miller’s untimely death put an end to those plans, but when the band was sent to newly liberated France, Vito paid a visit to G. Leblanc Cie., and his guide that day was Léon Leblanc. After service discharge in 1946 Pascucci returned to Kenosha, where Mr. Leblanc asked him to establish a foothold for the French company in America.In the 1950s, due to an ever-growing school market, demand for Leblanc instruments in the United States was far greater than the French concern could meet, so Leblanc began producing plastic-bodied clarinets in Kenosha.The Vito line of musical instruments was thus born, thrusting Leblanc to the forefront of the student clarinet market. In 1951 construction of Leblanc’s Kenosha factory was completed, a plant that to this day provides a model for the industry in its modern equipment, efficient operation and attractive appearance. Ever-increasing production called for the factory’s subsequent expansion in 1953, 1960 and 1966 and 1999.In 2004 Leblanc was acquired by Conn-Selmer, Inc. a division of Steinway Musical Instruments (NYSE:LVB). The Vito line of student instruments expanded to include student flutes, clarinets, oboes, trumpets and trombones. "

JWilliam Lewis (1835-1902) achieved initial recognition as a professional violinist and teacher in Chicago. One of his foremost students was Maud Powell, one of the first American-born concert violinists who was also a student of famed French violinist and teacher Charles Dancla. In 1870 William joined the Root-Cady Music Company. Concerned by the lack of quality instruments and service for his students and colleagues, William formed the Chicago Music Company in 1874 with his partners Newell and Gibbs. Located in the heart of the Chicago business district, players from the finest symphony orchestras in the world would often visit Lewis’ shop to have their own instruments appraised or serviced. Amati, Guarneri, and Stradivarius were commonly in inventory. He later renamed the business Wm. Lewis Company (1886) and Wm. Lewis & Son (1896). Fred Lewis succeeded his father as president of the company. Many current players and teachers played Lewis instruments earlier in their careers and are loath to give them up except to the most deserving of their own students. Today, instruments from the Wm. Lewis & Son workshop represent the finest instruments in the Conn-Selmer string line. Combining high performance with high value, Lewis instruments are hand-finished and finely adjusted to provide the best performance experience for advancing players."

Another particularly beautiful piano in several models is the mahogany polish with many inlaid patterns.

Six sizes of grand pianos and four sizes of vertical pianos are manufactured. Blüthner pianos have been favored by Franz Liszt, Claude Debussy, Peter Tschaikowsky, Arthur Rubinstein, and many other famous musicians and music lovers alike. Musicians praise the character of the sound with its famous romantic role.To celebrate its 150th anniversary in 2001, the company introduced the Blüthner Jubilee Edition (6’3”) featuring a new plate design reminiscent of the special edition of 1903. A left-handed piano was introduced in 2003, and in that same year a grand piano action with four pedals was invented. The fourth pedal activates the lift of the dampers, allowing them to drop back when the respective key is played. The remaining undraped strings produce harmonics that enrich the sound.The Haessler line of pianos made by Juliüs Blüthner consists of three sizes of grand pianos and three sizes of upright pianos. The international market will find a price advantage with the Haessler line, which meets Blüthner’s highest quality standard that has been maintained since 1853.

Marcela Schramlova, President.The history of Bohemia piano began in 1871 in the town of Jihlava. In 1924 the company started its cooperation with a Viennese firm, Hofmann & Czerny (Austria). The factory’s modernization and assortment expansion continued until 1944, and in 1945 the company was converted to a state-owned corporation. In 1993 Bohemia Piano Ltd. bought the factory from the government and transformed it to a privately owned company again.The new owner has reinstituted the pre-war traditions and has successfully developed the new construction of all piano models in a very short time. With some 2,500 instruments produced annually, the company is one of the largest European manufacturers. The original confined factory space in Jihlava led to the addition of a factory in Hradec Králové for grand piano production. The hand-production of grand pianos is based on the cooperation between the designers and the company’s highly skilled piano builders, whose perfect workmanship and use of top-quality components result in the unique instruments sought after by professional performers, music schools, and concert halls. Each instrument is monitored on an ongoing basis, and the innovations are in accordance with the customer’s satisfaction. Bohemia Piano prides itself in producing the most innovative pianos in an otherwise predominantly conventional handicraft.Using the brand names Bohemia Piano and Hofmann & Czerny, the company produces a full range of upright pianos from size 43” to 52” and grand pianos from 4’11” to 8’11”.Bohemia pianos are preferred by players who enjoy the elegant and mellow European sound as well as the fine variety of cabinets in many different colors and veneers.A few years ago, C. Bechstein became a shareholder of Bohemia Piano s.r.o, Jihlava, and with their investment as well as the assistance of their technicians, the production increased. In April 2007 C. Bechstein bought the remaining shares and renamed the company C. Bechstein Europe s.r.o, Jihlava. Bohemia Piano America, Inc. remains the distributor for North America with their representative, German American Trading. "

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."

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.
