The Haines Brothers Piano Company (not to be confused with W. P. Haines & Co.) was established by Napoleon J. Haines and his brother Francis W. Haines in 1851 in New York City. For the first 20 years, Haines Brothers built a large selection of high-quality square grand pianos. The firm built their first upright piano in 1870 and their first grand pianos came along shortly after. In the early 20th Century, Haines Brothers added several successful lines of player pianos and reproducing player pianos to their line. Instruments by the firm were known for being high-quality, superior sounding instruments.
The Sherlock-Manning Piano Company of Canada took control of Haines Brothers in the 1920s. Sherlock-Manning continued to build the Haines Brothers brand name until 1945.
