SCHAFER & SONS
Schafer & Sons is more than a company – it is a family dedicated to music and fine musical instruments. The business was established by Vern Schafer in 1955 in Colton, California. The company initially produced 100 pianos, manufactured by the Currier Piano Company. In the 1960’s they joined a partnership with Kohler and Campbell Pianos. In the 1970’s they produced the “Classic” Console Piano. Many other well known piano manufacturers produced pianos from this brand. These include the Aeolian, Schimmel, Story and Clark, Kimball, Wurlitzer, and other piano manufacturing companies. In 1974, Samick Pianos forged a partnership with them. The two company’s joint venture lasted until 1989. From 1990 until 2005 Young Chang has manufactured this brand of pianos. Parts are manufactured overseas, which are gathered together and assembled in China. Today, these pianos are negotiating with several European manufacturers to produce a new line of this brand of pianos.
