Joseph Brodmann

Vienna has always been one of the most beautiful cities in the world.
Its stunning continental architecture, numerous parks, and world-renowned arts
and cultural institutions have enchanted guests for centuries.
Could there be a more suitable place for the company headquarters of The Joseph Brodmann Group?

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.

Brodmann today is rooted in this exemplary tradition. We´re rooted in the cultural history of Vienna and the idea of excellence.

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.

"Speakers need to breathe like instruments
to reproduce life-like sound." So said famed acoustical engineer and speaker designer Hans Deutsch,
thereby setting conventional sound reproduction on its ear.
Hans Deutsch´s diverse education made him uniquely qualified to think outside of the box.

true to life sound.

Conventional speakers utilize filters and dampeners to correct distortion and unwanted resonance from inside and outside the cabinet.

Hans Deutsch´s designs minimize distortion in the first place. He carefully developed an extremely stiff speaker cabinet with custom designed drivers to specifically preclude additional dampening. This frees the drivers to follow the electrical signal without any need for correction. Controlled, resonating, acoustic soundboards complete the equation to create three-dimensional, true-to-life sound.

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.
