"Wm. Knabe pianos are handmade, limited production pianos created in the finest tradition of the 300 years of piano crafting. Production pianos have their place in the world of music. They are tonally consistent and durable, but they lack the "soul" of a handcrafted instrument. Each handmade Knabe has its own personality. When you play a Knabe, you will sense the difference."
"The [guild's] mission is to promote the highest possible standards of piano service by providing members with opportunities for professional development, by recognizing technical competence through examinations and by advancing the interests of its members.
"The rigorous technical examinations are used to certify piano technicians as Registered Piano Technicians (RPT). The RPT credential shows that the technician is a professional who can competently perform normal piano tuning, service and repair."
"[Their] mission is to train students for careers in traditional trades that use hand skills in concert with evolving technology, to preserve and advance craft traditions, and to promote greater appreciation of craftsmanship."
