Steinway & Sons

Ford Piano has had a long association with the manufacturer of the worlds’ finest piano, Steinway & Sons. John Fekete, Ford Piano’s founder, worked at the Steinway factory when it was on 14th St. in Manhattan. This was before they moved to the country and wide open spaces of 301 Park Ave – the site of the current Waldorf Astoria. John Fekete broke in many people to the piano trade, among them, John Bodjus who went on to be the head of the Research and Development department at the current Steinway Astoria factory during the 1950′s and 60′s.

Before Steinway established a rebuilding department in the early 1970′s, Ford Piano would get restoration referrals from “the factory”. Ford Piano Supply designed, produced, and sold specialty tools to the factory during this time period. To this day, Steinway is unsurpassed in quality, tone, and resale value, making Steinway the piano of choice for most serious players, aficionados and concert venues.
