See for yourself how we match up to the other manufacturers.

Every aspect of how a piano is manufactured must be considered before investing in something that is going to be such a significant part of a musician's life. Below we show you how several manufacturers choose to cut corners – especially in areas that the musician will never see. We also show, in the last column, how important it is to us that nothing is overlooked in the creation of a Langlois Piano.
