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





Founded by Vern Schafer in 1955, Schafer & Sons was a brand developed for his Colton, California retail
stores: The Colton Piano & Organ Co. In the beginning, Schafer & Sons pianos were built by the Currier
Piano Company of North Carolina. Shortly thereafter (100 pianos later), Vern Schafer started selling the
brand successfully in joint ventures with New York’s Kohler & Campbell piano company, and the Kimball
Piano Co. of Chicago, and distribution was expanded throughout the USA. By about 1966 the large Aeolian
Corp. conglomerate of New York then manufactured Schafer & Sons pianos. After 1970, Schafer & Sons
pianos were also manufactured by companies like Lowrey, Story & Clark, Wurlitzer (prior to 1974), Kimball;
German firm: Schimmel (7 foot grand pianos); and Korean firms: Samick (1974-1989), and Daewoo, who
made some pianos for them in 1990 and 1991. From 1990 to 2005 Young Chang manufactured most
Schafer & Sons pianos in South Korea and China. Since then most pianos were assembled in China with
parts from around the world. Currently, Schafer & Sons International is still a family business run by Vern
Schafer and his sons Vernon Jr., Charles, James, Weston, Ruston and Duston.
