The name of Joseph Brodmann is a driving force behind our uniqueness and our high expectation towards quality. In 18th century Vienna, he earned widespread acclaim for excellence in piano making and in furthering the development of piano soundboards. Among the friends and customers of the Brodmann house were Ludwig van Beethoven and Carl Maria von Weber. Ignaz Bösendorfer learned the high art of piano making from him and became Brodmann´s most famous pupil. By 1828, his manufacturing process was considered one of the most innovative and modern of its time.
The quality of our raw materials, the masterly workmanship, language of design, and tonal philosophy, have all grown out of a conscious loyalty to our place in time. We pride ourselves as internationally successful makers of musical instruments and speaker systems. With branches in Hong Kong and the USA, we attend to a network of more than 200 choice retailers.
Living with music means living with passion, beauty, and style. It means listening with Brodmann.
Every speaker system and every instrument we produce is a direct reflection of our passion for music.
Many of us at Brodmann are active musicians ourselves. We take great pride in tirelessly researching
new technologies and procedures to improve our products, which we consider our works of art. As such,
we hold ourselves to a high standard of aural aesthetics – one formed by a rich Viennese musical
history that has decisively influenced European sound tradition.
The care taken in every step of production is part of Brodmann´s commitment to having a place in that history. Voice tuning is still done expertly and painstakingly by ear. Even the smallest screw is hand-drilled to specifications that ensure it does its job as part of the resonating instrument. We place our trust exclusively in high-quality European materials from proven vendors.
