Collection: Schafer & Sons Pianos

Schafer & Sons was founded by Vern Schafer in 1955 in Colton, California. Initially, the company produced pianos in collaboration with the Currier Piano Company. Over time, Schafer & Sons formed partnerships with several prominent piano manufacturers, including Kohler & Campbell, Kimball, Aeolian, Schimmel, and Wurlitzer. This extensive collaboration allowed them to offer a diverse range of pianos, from uprights and grands to player pianos.

In the 1970s, Schafer & Sons produced the "Classic" console piano, which became one of their most popular models. From 1974 to 1989, Schafer & Sons partnered with the Korean firm Samick, and from 1990 to 2005, their pianos were primarily manufactured by Young Chang. This period marked significant growth for the company, with Schafer & Sons pianos being produced in large quantities and distributed widely.

Schafer & Sons pianos are known for their robust construction, reliable performance, and pleasing aesthetics. The company utilized high-quality materials and innovative designs to ensure their instruments met the needs of both amateur and professional musicians. The partnership with various manufacturers allowed Schafer & Sons to incorporate diverse features and craftsmanship styles into their pianos, making them versatile and well-regarded in the piano community.

Today, while Schafer & Sons pianos are no longer produced, they remain valued by collectors and musicians for their historical significance and quality. Restored Schafer & Sons pianos continue to be appreciated for their warm tone and durability, reflecting the brand's legacy of fine musical instruments.
