Modern Day Expansion and Manufacturing

Hallet, Davis & Co. found it rather impossible to build pianos in the United States because of the high labor costs in conjunction to the world's economy, as it found its way on the rise with globalization.

Hallet, Davis & Co. has forged partnerships with overseas manufacturers in order to produce a higher quality and more aesthetically pleasing pianos at even inexpensive prices.

Hallet, Davis & Co. has been working in partnership with these overseas manufactures to create an impressive number of high quality pianos; grand pianos in both traditional and Victorian period styles. Queen Anne and Chippendale models are featured as well as Decorator Consoles and Professional Uprights.

Continental and Studio styles are also available in a countless and various beautiful veneers and finishes.

Hallet & Davis would have a wall full of Academy Awards or Grammies for 'performance by a piano' if they were to award them today.
