Schoenhut's owners, Renee and Len Trinca, receiving a NAMM "Milestone Award" for 135 Years of Service in the music products industry.
Since 1996, Len & Renee Trinca have overseen the operations at Schoenhut Piano Company. The two still call it a labor of love and enjoy the thrill of designing, manufacturing and marketing these precious little toy instruments. For nearly 20 years Schoenhut’s operation has been nestled and run on the outskirts of downtown historic Saint Augustine, Florida.
Along with many of Albert Schoenhut’s original designs, including the famous toy piano, they currently offer a variety of other toy instruments in different styles and colors. All prototypes today are designed and hand-built by Len Trinca. His work is state-of-the-art and incorporates perfect pitch and true piano sound - the only piano of its kind in the world.
Although Albert Schoenhut started designing musical instruments with children in mind, professional musicians regard Schoenhut toy pianos as serious concert instruments. John Cage started the ball rolling in 1948 when he composed "Suite for Toy Piano." Since then, interest has skyrocketed. This trend has given a new perspective about Schoenhut and attests to the high quality of our products. We believe in 100% customer satisfaction. Schoenhut’s reputation for making safe toys and high quality products has been a trademark of the company since 1872.
