Does anyone know about rubinstein piano? i met one in a piano warehouse. It is pretty old, but it still sounds ok. I've asked my dad and he said when he was young(which is about 50 years ago), it is a famous piano brand name.

But i've searched on the internet and not much infomation found. Is it made in Germany? As it is showed on the piano i saw today.

Use the search function of this forum with the correct spelling "Rubenstein" and you will find multiple discussions about this brand.

Also see their website www.rubensteinpianos.com

I don't think cho is referring to the 12'2'' behemoth...but I guess he could be.

That is a different company. The Rubenstein that Cho is referring to is probably a stencil piano from the pre-1930s era.

Oops - sorry I read too quickly. And Cho might even have the spelling correct:

Thanks a lot!!!

That's why I am very confused, because the brand name written on the piano is "RUBINSTEIN" only, but it doesn't has the logo and full name "Anton G. Rubinstein" from the website below

http://www.rubinsteinpianos.com

This is really strange, it seems that if the piano i met is really a "RUBINSTEIN" only (without logo), and not Rubenstein, maybe it's a piano brand which had stopped production??

That piano is in poor condition now and the dealer said he will take a month to re-condition it. I think I will go back to it again later and check out more details.

The Rubinstein piano is look like the Sommerfeld piano at the below link

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:Sommerfeld_piano.jpg

Black color, with some "sqaure decoration".
