I know my old spinet piano was built in 85, but I cannot seem to find out for sure by whom? The plate has 'Wurlitzer Made In USA' cast in relief, but that could refer to the plate itself which was probably made at OS Kelly in Springfield.

Anybody have a clue? I'm probably selling it this afternoon and would like to be able to tell the guy.

Probably Wurlitzer. I think that was before Baldwin bought them.

Baldwin bought Wurlitzer in 1988, so your piano was built by Wurlitzer.

It's interesting - I had always thought they were being made by Samick at that time, but evidently not. It does have a very round, pleasing tone and good expressive ability for a spinet, so... good for me.

Thanks, all.
