J.C. Neupert KG

Company Description:


The family-owned company, originally involved in piano construction and now primarily with the construction of historical keyboard instruments, was founded by Johann Christoph Neupert in Münchberg/Oberfranken. In 1874, relocation took place to Bamberg, which is larger and has better transport connections. The operation, which initially worked within a handcraft setting, rapidly developed when the 3 sons of the founder joined the company and split the tasks.

The company took pioneering action when it presented its first reconstructed harpsichord to the public in 1906. The basis for this was the collection of historical keyboard instruments already started by Johann Christoph Neupert, which grew into approx. 250 originals over the years (in the Germanic National Museum Nuremberg since 1968).

The reawakening of historical keyboard instruments was primarily promoted in the 3rd generation, when a son from each branch of the family continued their fathers’ tasks. The company based itself more and more on the construction of harpsichords, spinets, clavichords and fortepianos, which was also expressed in the new company name “Workshops for historical keyboard instruments”. Supported by the scientific work of Hanns Neupert, a grandson of the company founder, Neupert received a worldwide reputation in this area.

In 1975, the 4th generation of the company transferred to Wolf Dieter Neupert, under whose management a new production building was moved into in Bamberg, Zeppelinstraße 3, in 1977.

On this basis of this family tradition and in the awareness of the historical requirements and the technical possibilities of our time, the now largest German and simultaneously the world’s oldest workshops for harpsichord construction, instruments are being built, which are highly appreciated domestically and abroad.
