Does anyone know the top 5 or 10 brands of pianos sold in the USA by number of units, not by quality.

And, why do you think the top brands are doing better than the others.

I don't think the below exactly answers your question, but it's a start. I got this info from the Blue Book of Pianos.

The six brand names listed here accounted for over 90% of all Grand Pianos sold in the United States during the last 18 years. These models shown here represent more 86% of that majority.

BALDWIN "M" 5'2"
KAWAI KG1/RX15'4" /5'5"
SAMICK" SG 153" 5'1"
YAMAHA G1/C1 5'3"
YOUNG CHANG G157/**TG157 5'2"
