Stultz & Bauer
Henry Stultz is first listed as a piano dealer and manufactory at 166 Ludlow, New York, in 1880. In 1883, Henry Stultz went into partnership with Frederick Bauer to form the partnership of “Stultz & Bauer”. Their factory was located at 701 First Avenue, New York. They enjoyed great success and again expanded to larger factories at 338 – 340 East 31st Street, New York.
The firm was officially incorporated in 1892 as “Stultz & Bauer”. Stultz & Bauer built exceptionally well made pianos with an emphasis on quality and tone. The firm offered a full line of beautiful upright pianos, grand pianos, and player pianos. During the ‘teens and ‘twenties, the firm was in sole control of the Bauer Family. The firm began having finically difficulty with the onset of the Great Depression, so the firm was absorbed into the large Kohler & Campbell Piano Company in 1930. Kohler & Campbell continued to built the Stultz & Bauer name until about 1957.
