Frequently Asked Questions

13) How can I tell how old my piano is?

Each piano is given a serial number at “birth”.  It is usually located somewhere in the tuning pin area.  If the manufacturer is still in business, it may be able to provide the year of manufacture from the serial number.  Sometimes the information is on the manufacturer’s web site.  For those not still in business, a book called the “Pierce Piano Atlas” provides dates of manufacture from serial numbers for thousands of old piano brands.  You can find the book through a piano technician, in libraries, or from www.pianoatlas.com.  Where dates are not available, or the serial number cannot be found, it may be possible for an experienced technician or rebuilder to estimate the age of the piano from technical features or furniture design.
