Joseph Brodmann was a well-known piano maker in Vienna in the late 18th and early 19th centuries. Ignaz Bösendorfer apprenticed in Brodmann’s workshop and eventually took it over, producing the first Bösendorfer pianos there.
Currently, there are three lines of Brodmann pianos. The Professional Edition (PE) pianos, are designed in Vienna and use European components such as Strunz soundboards, Abel hammers, Röslau strings, and Langer-designed actions (Renner actions in the model PE228 grand). For quality control, Brodmann has its own employees from Europe working in the factory. The scale design of the 6' 2" model PE187 is said to be similar to that of a Hamburg Steinway model A and is often singled out for praise.
