The Pierce Piano Atlas has been a trusted source for the piano industry and the public for many years now. It is still the best single source when you want to know how old a piano is.

With over 12,000 piano manufacturers represented it is the book to turn to when trying to uncover the date a piano was built. The latest (12th) edition also has lots of interesting tidbits about the piano and the piano industry.

If you are in the piano business, or are an enthusiast, this is a great book to add to your library.

Every piano technician should have one. This particular hard cover book includes most (if not all) the changes of the old piano companies brought out and amalgamated into the Asian manufacturers. Being hard covered it will stand up to all the use a piano tuner will get out of it. Definitely worth the money. Wonderful (up-to-date) book. 5 Stars !

Format: Hardcover
This Atlas is second to none. Quickly find manufacture dates and information on most any piano using the serial number on the instrument. This item should be number 2 on the list behind your piano tools if you work in the trade, a valuable resource/research tool for those iterested in the instrument.

This book is exactly what I was hoping for, and has a ton of excellent reference material on piano manufacturers long since gone. I would recommend this book, and purchase another one if I ever needed.
