History

Established in 1891. Cunningham Piano Company was started by Patrick J. Cunningham, an Irish immigrant with a craft and a dream. Through his leadership, commitment to quality, and a keen business sense Cunningham Piano Company quickly became one of Philadelphia's most respected makers of pianos.Throughout his tenure as President of the company, Patrick J. Cunningham saw his company expand and thrive, gaining awards for both quality and design. However, The Great Depression was a huge detriment to all businesses and just before the beginning of World War II, Cunningham Piano Company ceased production and their staff focused on helping the war effort. After the war concluded, we began a new chapter. Cunningham Piano Company concentrated on piano restoration.Today, visitors can tour our facilties and see hundreds of instruments — new, restored, rebuilt… and audition the latest in the Philadelphia music scene — The New Cunningham Piano!

A Matchless Experience!  From the moment we walked into the showroom until the recent arrival of my beautiful mahogany Cunningham studio grand, the experience was truly delightful. Although I've played for many years, I grew up with my grandmother's piano, and knew very little about buying a piano. Rich made the buying experience both educational and enjoyable -- for me and my husband -- starting with a tour of the factory. We learned so much about piano manufacturing, the history of Cunningham and experienced the various piano brands (where we also fell in love with the Matchless Cunningham). I couldn't imagine a more pleasant experience. The best part -- the sound of this stunning Cunningham that now sits in our home. Rich and the folks at Cunningham are genuinely passionate about pianos and after you experience the sight and sound of a Cunningham you'll know why!

Well I've got to get this review started somewhere.  This review focuses around our purchase of a new Cunningham-branded piano for my Mom.  Look for updates/clarification as I get focused;Background:  I live between Boston and DC and my Mom wanted to treat herself to an upgrade from her wedding-present Baldwin spinet piano.  Process:  I read every forum, blog, etc. etc. to try to narrow search for a grand piano for her.  We limited our search to Yamaha, Kawai, and some used Steinways.  My mother tried out the following piano shops in the DC-area:Rick Jones - fun place with little pressure.  Tried out some Yamaha C3s and Kawai RX...  The Piano Company - Kawai pianos.  My mother tried out the GX line and some sub-lines below that.Jordan Kitts - tried out C3x and some sub-lines below that.  I had taken lessons at Jordan Kitts as a kid and they used to have a couple locations in Maryland.Schaeffer and Sons Piano - tried a C5 and looked around but kinda sad to see the Piano biz look like this.Cunningham - decided to take the trek (from Bethesda MD) up to PA and visit Longwood Gardens on the way.  Our piano tuner gave us some contradictory advice regarding the "Cunningham" brand piano:  'don't buy a Chinese-made piano, don't buy a new piano from a piano store, read Larry Fine's "Piano Buyer".  Well, the Larry Fine publication seemed to be very high on both the Hailun and related Cunningham brand.  Plus:  Salesmanship not dead!  Rich G. really helped my Mom out and was pretty fun (had my toddler daughter acting up with me so really hard work!).  My Mom seemed like she was never going to make a decision and enjoy a new piano.  Rich was great.  I was almost embarrassed with how much kind attention he gave to us.  We were not buying a $100k piano but the moderate priced Cunningham models.  Plus:  the place is large and beautiful.  Rich gave us a tour of the shops and met some of the re builders.  Great vibe where seems like team effort.  Plus:  Rich seems to have great relationships with local musicians and a pair of men dropped in and played some classical and show tunes and were just horsing around with Rich.  We really enjoyed watching them enjoy the Cunningham pianos.  Plus:  we tried out the 5'4" and the 5'10" Cunninghams and both sounded great.  This was after trying out the Yamaha C3x etc. and the tone was wonderful on both.Minus:  the area around Cunningham's is rough looking and I was almost not sure we were in right place...Plus:  [signing off for now but have to write up more later]

I am very impressed with the professionalism and the knowledge that this historic piano store entails.    With so many piano stores failing,   this one is a class act and that is why they are still around.    Their pianos are in tune and they are very happy to let you try even the most expensive ones just to compare.     In my opinion,  this is the "go to"  place if you are in the market for a piano.

Recently, I had the chance to buy a piano, previously restored by Cunningham Piano.  Cunningham Piano's build their own pianos and they're master piano re-builders as well.  Being that I was talking about buying a piano from a third party, and not from them, I was worried that no one would want to talk to me.  I just wanted to understand what "rebuilt by Cunningham Piano" means, because as you know re-built can mean just about anything.  Can I tell you how helpful they were?  They have an absolute, unbridled passion for pianos.  I talked to an employee intimately familiar with the re-build process and they went over everything with me.  After this, I have no doubt that their skill and attention to detail are second to none.  If I had a piano that needed rebuilding, I would not hesitate to bring it to them for restoration.  Even more impressive however, the owner of the company called me back to follow up.  Who could ask for anything more?  I can't wait for my next trip to Philadelphia so I can come down and see their showroom.  It holds a wide selection of new and expertly re-built classic pianos - all with the same exacting, attention to detail.  Thank-you Cunningham Pianos for your care and assistance.As for the lady who complained about Cunningham wanting to replace her pinblock and soundboard - I don't know, I wasn't there but, it seems to me they have pretty high standards.  There are so many dried-out, grandma's Steinways out there you know what I mean?  And maybe her piano isn't that bad but, a good re-build is expensive, period.  What can you do?  I once had a piano-tech tell me my mother's piano was "exploded" so, I know how that makes you feel inside.  So, she's probably just upset.  But, honestly, if you want the best, you're going to have to pay for it.  From what I've seen, these guys really know what they're doing...

I'm reviewing Cunningham's piano tuning services. I saw the only other reviewer had a bad experience - not saying they were wrong, but just wanted to balance it out.  I just had a piano tuner come out to my house this afternoon.  It only took a few days to make an appointment.  The tuner, Dave, was very friendly and quick (in and out in about an hour and a half), and very reasonably priced compared to other tuners I've seen.  And probably most importantly, I thought he did a good job getting the piano tuned up.  It wasn't a complicated job per se, but Cunningham was everything they needed to be.
