George Steck Piano History
George Steck was a German immigrant who opened up a piano manufacturing company in New York in 1857. His factories soon grew along with his fame. He was the first to develop the independent cast iron frame, and won medals in Vienna and Philadelphia in the 1870's. The Steck instruments were praised by Franz Liszt and Richard Wagner.
The Aeolian piano company acquired the company in 1904 and produced the Steck pianos until the 1980's. From 2004 on, George Steck has been owned by various Asian piano companies, and was imported from China until 2015. It is no longer made today.
