Setting the European Standard
In just a few short years, the Estonia piano has become highly acclaimed in the small niche of handcrafted quality instruments. Built in limited numbers in the musically vibrant city of Tallinn, the capital of Estonia, the Estonia piano enjoys a following of enthusiasts the world over, unlike any piano in modern times.
Today, the company is owned by Dr. Indrek Laul, a classically trained pianist from the Juilliard School, along with his family, whose musical roots run deep in Estonia culture. Founded in Estonia over 120 years ago, Estonia pianos enjoyed an excellent reputation amongst musicians and artists in the region. However, under the Soviet regime, the quality of the instrument suffered.
After the Soviet fall, Dr. Indrek Laul began purchasing company stock and became its sole owner in 2001. Assembling a team of experienced managers, Dr. Laul articulated a new direction and vision for the company to create a world-class piano. He also brought together the services of skilled artisans and piano experts and collaborated with the Estonian Academy of Sciences to create a redesigned piano, one that has now achieved worldwide recognition for quality and value.
With laminated sand-case plates, Renner actions and hammers and European solid spruce soundboards, Estonia grand and concert pianos truly set the standard of handcrafted European pianos.
