Hello all,
I tried today an upright Ed. Seiler made in Copenhagen, which sounded very nice. Does anyone have information regarding the quality of the Copenhagen made (1951-1957) Seiler pianos?
Thanks,
Itamar

No genuine Seilers or "Ed Seilers" of quality known later have ever been made in Denmark in those years.
Unless this was a very temporary moment in time after the war years.
Get a tech to check things out. May be an o.k. buy.
Or *not*...

Seiler pianos made in Copenhagen are genuine.

Multiple sources on the web, including Fine's Piano Buyer and Seiler's own web site, confirm that the Seiler fourth generation took their scale designs to Copenhagen after WW 2 and manufactured pianos for many years there before setting up in Kitzingen. I guess people's concepts of a temporary moment can differ.

Despite Norbert's bluster getting in the way of facts once again, in my opinion, his advice is good. Get the piano inspected. It's unlikely to be on par with later production in Bavaria, and it's more than 50 years old, but it may be a good piano.
