A.B. Chase was established in 1875 by Alvin B. Chase in Norwalk, Ohio. The company started as a reed organ
builder. Alvin B. Chase died shortly thereafter and in 1877 stockholder, Calvin Whitney, carried on as president
of the company, remaining with the firm until he passed away in 1909. The company actually started
manufacturing pianos by 1885. Around 1900, they discontinued organ production, concentrating instead on
building upright, grand and player pianos. They were known for their instruments of high quality, recognized with
the grand prize at the 1893 Worlds Fair. A.B. Chase became part of the United Piano Corp. in 1922, were later
controlled by the Lester Piano Co. of Philadelphia, PA in 1931, and then the Aeolian-American Corp. of New
York. In 1985 Aeolian went out of business. Since 2001 the A.B Chase name has been used by
Wrightwood Enterprises Inc. on pianos made by the Dongbei Piano Co. in China.
