Gulbransen Upright Pianos
Why we love to restore Gulbransen pianos
As with most pianos manufactured before World War II, Gulbransen pianos were built well. Most of the vintage action parts built to the same specifications are still available.
History of Gulbransen
Established in Chicago in 1904, Gulbransen was a major contributor to the American piano industry in the early 20th Century. Gulbransen produced a full line of upright and grand pianos, but they were likely the largest maker of player pianos in the pre-Depression era. After the Great Depression, Gulbransen produced several lines of spinets, consoles and small baby grand pianos. Gulbransen changed ownership several times throughout the 20th Century, and today the name is still being built in electronic keyboards and organs.
