ABOUT STORY & CLARK
Today’s Story & Clark pianos reflect the company’s rich and unique American history of over a century of innovation combined with expert craftsmanship in piano-making. Melville Clark is generally credited with creating the first player piano as we know it today (the Apollo). The company went on to develop the first electric piano (in partnership with RCA in 1939) and today they continue the tradition with PNOscan®.
Beginning in 2008, each Story & Clark piano and player piano now comes standard with PNOscan, a state-of-the-art MIDI optical sensor strip invisibly installed under the keys, as well as discretely placed USB and MIDI ports. These innovations do not interfere with the touch, response or beauty of the piano in any way and yet open up a world of possibilities through connectivity.
