Joseph Brodmann was a well-known piano maker in Vienna in the late 18 th and early
19 th centuries. Ignaz Bosendorfer apprenticed in Brodmann’s workshop and
eventually took it over, producing the first Bosendorfer pianos there.
Today, Brodmann pianos, designed and headquartered in Vienna, Austria, use the
finest European components:
Austrian custom fitted solid spruce soundboards – quarter sawn white Austrian
spruce soundboards from the world famous Holzwerke Strunz factory in Pocking,
Germany, known for over 180 years for crafting the finest soundboards in the industry.
Abel hammers – German Roslau strings – considered to be the finest in the world.
These German manufactured components are important parts of Brodmann quality.

The Brodmann Mission
To produce a piano with high-end performance characteristics at an affordable price using European components in key areas, strict quality control, and manufacturing in countries with favorable labor rates.
For quality control, Brodmann has its own employees from Europe in the factory.
Brodmann meticulously hand builds only 600 pianos per year, making it one of the
“Best kept secrets in the piano business!”. Austrian Master Technicians and piano
builders oversee all production and final quality control of Brodmann pianos. The scale
design of the 6’2” model PE187 is said to be similar to that of a Steinway
“Hamburg”model A and is often singled out for praise. Brodmann grands feature a
sophisticated tone with clarity and concert responsive piano touch. Brodmann’s
warranty, 12 years parts and labor, includes everything but normal maintenance and is
transferable to future owners within the warranty period.
