James Whiting Vose began as a cabinetmaker, and in about 1838 started to learn piano building at several piano
factories and shops in the Boston area. By 1851, he established his own business at 328 Washington St. in
Boston, Massachusetts. Vose made upright, grand and square grand pianos under the name of James W. Vose
during his early period. After learning piano building and the business itself, his sons Willard A. Vose, Irving B.
Vose, and Julien W. Vose, then joined their father’s company, and it was renamed Vose & Sons, incorporating in
1889. By the 1920s they built a factory at Watertown, Greater Boston. Shortly after the Great Depression of the
late 1920s, Vose & Sons was acquired by the conglomerate Aeolian-American Corp. of New York. Aeolian used
the Vose name until they went out of business in 1982. Since 2004 pianos bearing the name Vose & Sons were
used by Wrightwood Enterprises Inc. on pianos made by the Dongbei Piano Co. in China. Essentially the same
pianos were also sold under the brand names: Everett and A.B. Chase.
