Few piano manufacturers have the amazing history and reputation of The Hazelton Brothers Piano Company. The firm was originally established in 1840 as “F & H Hazleton” by brothers Henry and Fredrick Hazelton. Shortly after, a third brother John Hazelton joined the firm, after which the firm was renamed “The Hazelton Brothers Piano Company”.
During the 19th Century, Hazelton Brothers built a large selection of square grand pianos, uprights and grands. After about 1880, the firm began to decrease their production of square grand pianos in favor of the newly popular upright, and square grand production was all but over by 1890. After 1900, they added several lines of higher end player pianos and reproducing grand player pianos.
Hazelton is one of the few American piano manufacturers to survive the Great Depression, and they continued to build pianos until the late 1950’s. Today, the Hazelton name is once again being built as an Asian import piano by Samick of Korea.
