Petrof Pianos



For more than 152 years

PETROF is currently the largest producer of acoustic grand and upright pianos in Europe. It trades in 5 continents and exports to over 65 countries the world over. Since 1864, when Antonín Petrof built his first piano, we have produced under the PETROF name roughly 630,000 instruments and many others within the PETROF Brand Family. Our pianos are popular among musicians above all for their unusually soft, gentle, rounded and romantic tone. Over the decades of their production much has changed, but precise work by hand, careful selection of materials and the unchanging romantic sound endure. Countless famous performers and well-known personalities have fallen in love with PETROF instruments, and the representatives oif the fifth generation proudly continue in their honourable trade and family tradition.


Antonín Petrof produced his first grand piano in 1864, thereby laying the foundations for the production of the masterly musical instruments of the PETROF brand. In the course of a few years he turned a small workshop into a successful factory, which stands in Hradec Králové in the heart of the Czech Republic and Europe to this day. The path among the leading European piano manufacturers, however, was not always rosy …




Yet despite this difficult path five generations of Petrofs have earned worldwide success,. Their brilliantly pure, rich sound and excellent craftsmanship lend PETROF’s grand and upright pianos an unprecedented reputation. 80% of the production process lies in the hands of our skilled pianomakers, intoners and tuners, whose rich experience we have accumulated over many decades. Every instrument that leaves our factory represents the good name of its builders.

Emerson, Viennese piano voicing and sound specialist Zlatkovic Sibin, Japanese production specialist Ema Shigeru and French scale designer and piano builder Stephen Paulello.

Meet Chris LaBarre, RPT

C.J.’s Pianos is a full service piano company founded by Christopher J. LaBarre, RPT.
The company goal is to make our clients’ pianos sound, play, and look their finest while offering quality customer service. Ever since my humblest of beginnings in 2006 I have been furthering my expertise to provide the best service possible. I build my expertise by actively participating in seminars provided by active membership in the Piano Technicians Guild (currently serving as the organization’s Northeast Regional Vice President), communicating with other experienced technicians, and staying up to date with manufacturer/trade publications.

In June 2014, I bolstered my qualifications by passing the arduous Registered Piano Technician exams. Just because I’ve passed some tests don’t think for a moment I’ll be complacent about offering improving services- there is always something to learn in this field and I’m innovating new techniques and designs to improve the overall piano industry.

One of my big accomplishments for 2015 is the opening of my store in downtown Phoenixville, PA. I’m the area’s only certified Hailun Piano Dealer and I also offer quality used instruments. I would rather offer good used instruments than cheap new ones – the last thing I want is to sell an instrument which constantly needs repair, that’s why I researched the best, reliable new pianos!
