The original factory was located at 55 Ethel Street. During the 1920s the firm was controlled by The Krakauer Brothers Piano Company. One of Haddorffs most famous contribution to the piano industry was their introduction of the Vertichord, a small upright piano introduced the 1930s. During the year 1935, the Haddorff Piano Co. Created one of the great piano sensations of all time by the introduction of a new and original piano form known as the vertichord This piano achieved what was up to that time regarded as an impossibility, a vertical piano which could never be called an “upright, ” but which preserved all the advantages of that type of piano in the way of space economy, sound board area, and string lengths. The Vertichord was the original and the prototype of all of the pianos which have since come to be known as Spinets and Consoles and with now account for the great majority of the total piano production. The basic design and construction of the Vertichord are fully covered by patents. The Vertichord presents a further sensational improvement in small piano tonal development in the form of a secondary sound board connected with the main board by means of a “tone post” called the acoustic coupler. This invention increases the sound board area by more than half, with a corresponding improvement in the power and quality of tone. Check out our other auctions for more new and estate jewelry.
