Knowing the fair market value of Krakauer pianos is useful to sellers, buyers and owners.
This information can help guide you in making important decisions.






Founded in 1869 in New York City by Simon Krakauer and his son David, and soon joined by his
brother Julius, Krakauer Bros. was controlled by the Krakauer family right up until 1977. They were
well known for building pianos of very high quality in the late 1800s and early 1900s. Krakauer began
building pianos for the Madison Piano Co. of New York, and by 1917 had incorporated the company.
They also owned the Wadsworth Piano Co. in New York. Krakauer made pianos bearing the names:
Krakauer Bros., Madison, Vertichord and Lyrichord. In 1977 Howard Graves bought the firm and
moved it to Berlin, Ohio. The Kimball piano company then acquired the business in 1980, keeping
Graves on as manager. In 1985 Kimball closed the Krakauer factory in Ohio, but continued making
Krakauer pianos at the Kimball factory. When Kimball ceased piano manufacturing in 1996, it sold the
Krakauer name to Chinese firm, Artfield Piano Ltd., who continued to manufacture pianos bearing this
name. Distribution in the U.S. was discontinued in 2006.
