Bush & Gerts
The Bush & Gerts Piano Company was established in Chicago in 1884. Superior manufacturing methods and skilled marketing allowed Bush & Gerts to became a major contender in the American Piano Industry in a relatively short period of time.
In 1924, the large Haddorff Piano Company took control of the Bush & Gerts brand name. Haddorff continued to build the Bush & Gerts name until about 1942, ultimately ceasing all production due to World War II. Bush & Gerts enjoyed the reputation of being very well made, and their earlier models are often very elaborate and expensive. We see quite a few Bush & Gerts pianos surviving today, and they are consistently excellent pianos and a pleasure to restore.
