Clinkscale Online
A Comprehensive Database of Early Pianos, 1700-1860

Welcome to Clinkscale Online, a comprehensive research database dedicated to the worldwide cataloging of historic pianos from before 1860. The database is now available as an online resource available to all registered users without cost. Explore information about nearly 7000 historic pianos, and easily submit information on pianos not yet included, or corrections for existing data.

Started in 1987 by Martha Novak Clinkscale, the database formed the basis of her two groundbreaking books published by Oxford University Press: Makers of the Piano 1700-1820 and Makers of the Piano 1820-1860. This website continues her work by offering visitors an opportunity to search the now much expanded database, and contribute to its completeness and accuracy.
