Maybe you have a Howard piano and don’t know much about this brand? Are you wondering who makes Howard pianos? Or if they’re good, valuable instruments? We will try to answer these and other questions in this article.

We will start with the short history of Howard pianos. The Howard brand covers the entire range of keyboard instruments in various sizes produced by the Baldwin factory since 1895. Howard Piano Company was founded in Cincinnatti, Ohio, as a branch of Baldwin. These were both upright pianos, spinets, grand pianos and so-called home organs introduced in the late 1950s (1959). They also produced Manualo, a self-playing piano, and coin-operated pianos. Hence, there is a certain difficulty in accurately describing the models and categorizing these instruments. We know for sure that since the founding of the company, for many years Howard instruments were produced in America (up to the 60’s). Then, in the 70’s and 80’s, the Japanese factory Kawai, and later the Korean manufacturer Samick, manufactured the instruments. Currently, all Baldwin production takes place in China.

Howard pianos are considered to be very durable instruments from the second Baldwin line. However, they are not necessarily top tier pianos. They are rather budget instruments, designed for students and amateurs. This is a more accessible option for those who could not afford a Baldwin instrument. They are often found in homes and schools, just like another Baldwin brand - Hamilton. This does not change the fact that after many years of use they are still usually in very good condition.

They are made with the greatest attention to detail. They have double veneer and are durable therefore suitable for schools and institutions.

  • Spinet Howard - 36” – 91 cm
