Bush & Gerts
The Bush & Gerts Piano Company was a major player in the American piano industry prior to World War 2. Established in 1884, Bush & Gerts built excellent pianos until 1942 in Rockford, IL, and in Chicago. (After about 1924, their pianos were actually built by the Haddorff Piano Company of Rockford, IL) Bush & Gerts enjoy the reputation of being very well made, and their earlier models are often very elaborate. We see quite a few Bush & Gerts pianos surviving today, and they are consistently excellent pianos and a pleasure to restore.
