Manufactured In: South Korea

Sohmer & Co. is a manufacturer of world renown pianos since 1872 when Hugo Sohmer, inventor of the baby grand, founded the company in New York. The factory was family owned and remained in New York for 110 years until it was purchased by the Samick Music Corporation, the world's largest piano company. Samick moved Sohmer's production facilities to South Korea where the company continues to uphold Sohmer's longstanding reputation for quality while offering their pianos for a competitive price. Sohmer pianos are particularly well known for their beautiful and elegant cabinets, a reputation the company earned shortly after its inception in 1872, and considered by many to be among the most beautiful pianos in the world. Prices for Sohmer pianos are in the middle range, with verticals starting at about $4,500 and grands starting at about $15,000.

The famous Sohmer creed was: "To build the finest piano that human integrity, skill, knowledge, craftsmanship, and family tradition can possible produce; to utilize the world's markets to procure the best materials regardless of cost; to maintain that quality unswervingly, and never to sacrifice one iota to gain an added profit, no matter how great; to preserve the integrity and individuality of the Sohmer institution free from outside affiliation or influences; and to be governed always and under all circumstances by sound principles, and never by expediency."
