PRAMBERGER PIANOPRAMBERGER PIANO HISTORY
The Pramberger Piano legacy began over 225 years ago with the birth of Joseph Johann Pramberger in Tyrol, Austria in 1779. Joseph Pramberger learned the skills of woodworking at a very young age in Vienna during an era in history where every aspect of creating a piano was an art of learned skill and personal craftsmanship. Pramberger had the utmost respect for the tradition of craftsmanship and piano building principles, and his education led him to become a Master Artisan in Europe.
Joseph Johann Pramberger’s two sons, Johann Jr. and Joseph, followed in his footsteps. Johann Jr. learned the trade and eventually took over the family business, while Joseph studied the art of woodworking alongside his brother and later became an independent piano builder. The family secrets of fine woodworking and masterful skills were passed down from generation to generation in the Pramberger family and Anton Pramberger was no exception.
Joseph Pramberger never stopped studying the art of piano making, choosing to expand his knowledge through formal education by attending New York University and earning a Bachelor degree in Mechanical Engineering. His vision was to recapture and recreate sound characteristics of a Golden Era Steinway and blend them seamlessly into the technological advantages of the modern age. He was often requested by the bigger names of the piano industry to visit and consult key suppliers and major piano manufacturers in Europe, Japan and Korea, something that he continued to do even in retirement. He would go on to become a Design and Project Engineer and eventually retire as Vice President of Manufacturing for Steinway & Sons and Chairman of the International Technical Exchange Group.
In the tradition of the Pramberger family members before him, Joseph formed his own company, Pramberger Piano. in 1987. He began designing his own line of pianos and worked together with his father, Anton, restoration and rebuilding pianos. Although design and manufacturing technology has evolved over the years, the inherited knowledge, experience and skilled touch of a Master Craftsman’s hands are still paramount in the creation of a modern musical instrument. Samick is proud to continue the long, distinguished tradition of Pramberger while manufacturing these pianos with the same core values and detailed craftsmanship.
