Established in 1875 by Allen B. Chase of Norwalk, Ohio, the company built both
pianos and organs in the last quarter of the 19th Century. By 1900, organs were
discontinued, and they went on to build a large selection pianos and player
pianos for over 100 years. Early on, they enjoyed a fantastic reputation for
superior instruments and they truly built some incredible pianos. In later
years, A.B. Chase was owned and controlled by the now defunct Aeolian-American
Corporation. Recently the A.B. Chase was bought by a contemporary company in
Illinois with plans to begin manufacturing this illustrious old name again.
