Pianos made by: Nanjing Schumann Piano Manufacturing Co., Ltd., Nanjing, Jiangsu Province, China
One of China’s oldest piano manufacturers, Nanjing Schumann was founded in 1956 as Nanjing Moutrie, originally to manufacture the Moutrie piano brand. The Schumann brand was added in 1984. The factory covers 650,000 square feet and produces nearly 10,000 pianos annually.
The company says that its pianos are modeled after the “German piano tradition,” with German components used in the production process. Examples include Röslau strings, German hammer felt, and imported German beechwood for pinblocks. The uprights have agraffes, and the grands sport bird’s-eye maple veneer on the inner rim. All models include a veneered all-spruce soundboard, a slow-close fallboard (keyboard cover), silver/chrome hardware, and an adjustable padded bench.
