Klavins Piano


was established by David Klavins in September 2020. The main activity of the company is building acoustic pianos of special design, invented by David Klavins, as well as building special design-pianos commissioned by third parties. David Klavins accomplished his degree of a master piano builder in January 1980, in Stuttgart, Germany, after having founded his first piano company in 1976 in Bonn, Germany. While initially specializing on the rebuilding of old pianos, in the course of his work he was studying the factors that mainly determine the acoustic characteristics of a piano.

This lead him to understand that the development of these instruments had obviously been artificially halted more than 100 years ago, and he began to contemplate building new pianos by his own findings and principles.






After five decades of active work as a piano builder, technician, and concert tuner, having been involved in various companies and projects, Klavins has now settled in Latvia, to exclusively focus on the building of innovative acoustic pianos.

Handcrafting Una Corda Pianos and Vertical Concert Grands on demand, the Klavins Piano SIA represents the number one manufacturer of non-traditional, avant-garde acoustic pianos.

My personal philosophy of piano building is to create a sound that inspires pianists and musicians to play beautiful music.
