PIANOS & PRICES

This information is for the sole purpose of providing a selling product-price benchmark. We arrive at these retail prices by using age old piano industry standard pricing formulas. We take the wholesale price add the "normal" % markup to arrive at these retail prices. They would be the average retail "tag" price used by U.S. music retailers and  these figures represent the same margin of profit and percentages that have been published in music product and consumer guides such as the Ancott Music Product Directory, Piano Book Supplement Series, Bluebook of Pianos, and The Piano Times. All prices are dynamic and subject to change at any time.
 
Retail pricing is the responsibility of the dealer. No two dealers are alike, no two markets are alike and starting retail prices are set by individual dealers. Prices will vary from dealer to dealer with local economic conditions.

GROTRIAN-STEINWEG, www.grotrian.de

This name was established about 1854 by the partnership of Georg Friedrich Karl Grotrian and Theodor Steinweg. In 1980 the Grotrian-Steinweg Company stopped using “Steinweg” in the US due to legal action by Steinway. The Grotrian-Steinweg name is still used in Europe. See Grotrian Piano Company for additional information.

Today, the company is in the hands of Erwin’s daughters, the fifth generation of Georg Friedrich Karl Grotrian. The factory is managed by Burkhard Stein and is located at Grotrian-Steinweg Strasse 2, D-38112 Braunschweig, Germany. Current mailing address, P0. Box 5833, D-38409 Braunschweig, Germany.
