This information can help guide you in making important decisions.






Kranich & Bach was founded in 1864 in New York, NY by Helmuth Kranich and Jacques Bach.
In 1873 they set up a factory located at 237 E. 23rd St. In 1890 the firm incorporated, with Frederick
and Alvin Kranich, sons of Helmuth, and Louis P. Bach, sons of Jacques, serving as directors and
officers. Kranich & Sons then became a trade name also used. Kranich & Bach also manufactured
the 4' 9" Grandette grand piano beginning in 1934, capitalizing on the consumer demand for smaller
pianos in smaller spaces. Kranich & Bach was acquired by Winter & Co. of New York in 1946, which
eventually became part of the conglomerate, Aeolian Corp. in 1959. Last recorded serial number is
dated in 1981. Wurlitzer then purchased the name, and then it went to Baldwin when they purchased
Wurlitzer in 1995. Baldwin had pianos bearing this name made for them by the Beijing Piano Co. in
China. In 2001, Gibson Guitars acquired the Kranich & Bach name when they purchased Baldwin
but currently is not making Kranich & Bach pianos.
