LYRIC PIANO & ORGAN CORP.
Lyric is the Philippines’ largest musical instrument retail chain. It started out as a piano store in 1960, but it has recently expanded its product lineup to other brands like ESP/LTD guitars, DW drums, and many more.
Lyric Piano started in 1960, and it is headed by Mr. Severo N. Panganiban, now the Chairman of the Board. The new head office is located at 80 Horseshoe Drive corner N. Domingo Street, New Manila, Quezon City. The previous office at 184 Dr. Alejos Street, La Loma, Quezon City has been converted into a warehouse and display outlet. The factory is located at #69 P. Jacinto Street, Caloocan City.
Lyric started as a supplier of parts and accessories to piano manufacturers. In 1968, the company started manufacturing pianos for the domestic market. In 1975, Lyric started exporting pianos.
The product lines of the company consisted of pianos and various musical instruments. Lyric manufactured pianos under its own brand and label: Lyric Traditional, Lyric International, Lyric Modern, Lyric Elegante, Eisenberg, Osaki and Kinsberg. Lyric also carried a wide variety and models of Lyric guitars, violins, cellos, keyboard, and more.
In order to meet the local demand for imported pianos, Lyric acquired the distributorship of Korean-made Samick and the American-made Kohler & Campbell pianos. Wurlitzer and Baldwin pianos from U.S.A. were also soon acquired. In 1998, Lyric assumed the exclusive local distributorship of Boston and Steinway & Sons pianos. Lyric also carried the exclusive distributorship of the most advanced piano player, Piano Disc.
In the provinces of Visayas and Mindanao area, Lyric supplied brand new and reconditioned pianos and musical instruments. Lyric regularly imported from all their foreign suppliers for the distribution to all its regular sales outlets.
In order to support its sales outlets, Lyric has a well-organized service center with well-trained staff and technicians. Technicians are trained in Japan and Germany (Steinway & Sons) to fully support and maintain all the musical instruments in good playing condition. Lyric also maintains a spare parts and accessories sales outlet to fully supply all the instruments it carries with original parts from foreign manufacturers.
Lyric, though famous for its piano heritage, recently expanded to becoming a full line music store as they claimed exclusive distributorship of instrument brands which originated from different parts of the world. Brands such as ESP (Japan), Blackstar Amplification (England), DW Drums (USA), Nord (Sweden), Meinl (Germany) are a few of the relatively new acquisitions of the company.
Lyric now has 31 branches across the Philippines and is still expanding across the country. We have dedicated ourselves to ensure that each and every musician will know that in order to get the best quality equipment and service, Lyric can deliver like no other! With Lyric, Own Your Music!
