Just bought a bremen spinet piano for $200. Needed it for a piano tuning course I am taking. Bought it sight unseen. Took a chance, but it was already in the moving truck and only paid $50 dollars for delivery. Does anyone know anything about Bremen Pianos? I did luck out. It is in very good condition. Thanks!

A Bremen is a Gulbransen by another name. They were made in a separate factory in Franklin Park, Illinois between 1952 and 1960. If it's structurally sound you should have a good sturdy piano to learn piano tuning on.

But I wanted to commend you for taking a course in piano tuning and I wish you luck with it. We will need all the piano tuners and technicians we can find in the future as many are retiring and the new fangled self tuning piano you've heard about on here will frankly never fly. I just heard from an engineer friend of mine that trying to stabilize a string tension by heating or cooling it is bound to change the string significantly within a very short time and would introduce so many false partials that the piano's sound would soon become unbearable and untuneable.

Thank you David Burton for the info. I have found a series letters ( LCA ) and serial number (15231) on the piano. Maybe I can narrow it down to when it was manufactured.

Don't know about LCA but 15231 puts it 1954.
