For more than four decades, our family has been designing, creating and restoring the world’s most exquisite custom pianos.

Our Story began in 1975. John Roy Norman, physicist and professional concert piano tuner decided to turn his hand to piano design.
With an affinity for musicianship and the meticulousness of a true scientist he embraced the craft of traditional piano making and 1066 was born. Where other makers were set in their ways, 1066 led the field with innovation pianos of exceptional build and sound quality
Now in our third generation, based in Cambridge, England, 1066 remains a family run business, built upon strong and enduring family values
