The Wurlitzer family were German instrument makers dating back to the 17th century with
Hans Andreas Wurlitzer, a violin maker. Soon after coming from Germany, Franz Rudolph Wurlitzer
established himself in 1856 in New York, importing German pianos. By 1861 a new factory was built in
Cincinnati, Ohio, continuing to sell pianos with the Wurlitzer label, but made by other European
makers. They did not start manufacturing their own pianos until 1880. Since the early 1900s Wurlitzer
became one of the major names in the music business that included the sale of orchestrions, player
pianos, organs and jukeboxes. By the 1900s Wurlitzer had factories in DeKalb, Illinois (grand pianos)
and North Tonawanda, NY (upright pianos). Other names controlled by Wurlitzer have included:
Apollo, Artola, Julius Bauer & Company, Melville Clark, De Kalb, Farney, Ellwood, Kingston, Student
Butterfly baby grand piano, Caldwell, Clavichord, Kurtzmann, Merriam, Milner, Schaff Brothers,
Spinette, Strad and Underwood.
