We have a beautiful old piano. It's name is: "Roloff Neubrandenburg" The two sites that i found, were both in german(ugly american, i don't speak anything other than my mother tongue) Anyone out there know about these? Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, all

Ya' know, if you'd named your piano some American name, it wouldn't be so hard to find.

(there ain't much I can find either and none in English here either!!)

HEY WOLFGANG!!!!! (send him a PM Gypsy)

There's a book called "The Piano Atlas" which can probably help a bit but the problem with finding out about old German pianos is that there were so many makers of pianos in Germany at one point there was around 400 makers in Berlin alone

Criminy! Guess i had better learn German, after all. Or hunt up a German speaking friend.

Try the reference department at your local library. Our library answered a question just like this a little while ago. If your library is very small, ask at a bigger library sometime when you're traveling to another town.

Sites in English:

Click and click Lots of clickies in the second site. Pretty funky looking pianos, if you ask me.......

ooops. Looks like both sites are actually the same....different pages on the same site. Oh well. I am really curious to know if Gypsy's looks like this. If you'll notice, only one of them is actually a Neubrandenburg. They are beautiful, huh?

I noticed that, but the first link covers the RN piano and its pretty good info.
