They approached retired C. BECHSTEIN piano designer Lothar Thomma, of Basel Switzerland, with the project of re-designing their Ritmüller line of pianos. After several years of discussion, Mr. Thomma agreed under two conditions: First, that he would control all facets of production, including materials and labor, and second, that he could design his OWN line of pianos - from the ground up- where he controlled, the parts, origin of components, specific manufacturing techniques and specific factory workers who would produce the new instrument. In 2010 the new line of Ritmüller pianos was introduced and received immediate industry and consumer acclaim. We are proud to announce that R.KASSMAN has been selected to be the FIRST American distributor for Mr. Thomma's Kayserburg line of pianos, designed completely by Mr. Thomma and incorporating traditional German manufacturing techniques and components, at very affordable price-points!
