Breaking News! Samick says if it buys Steinway it will, in the spirit of transparency, rename the pianos Samway. Steinwick was also considered, but was just too silly. laugh

We've seen dozens of names like "XXX & sons", but has there ever been a "XXX and daughters"?


What do snowflakes and Chickerings have in common? There are no two exactly alike!

A very good question, I can't say I've ever seen one, but I have to believe there should be one.

I haven't seen that in the piano business, but I did see "& Daughters" on a plumbing truck on the freeway once.

I did come across "xxx & Daughter". I don't remember the details, but I think they were piano technicians.

But you could just peel the label off of a beer bottle and stick it on the fallboard.

I actually saw a piano called GRESHWIN. An obvious reference to the composer, but mangled.

Speaking of Father & Sons (or daughters), how about role reversal? I was going to tease Rickster that now that he's retired he could work for his son and they'd be Son & Rickster!

(but I owe him an email. Actually, I owe a lot of people emails...sorry).

I liked the ones you gave not on this list but can't figure out which pianos these three refer to. Can someone help me recognize these three?

This one came up today in another thread -- Kimballdorfer -- referring to the Kimball grands based on Bosendorfer designs.
