When readers hear the word piano, they may think of a typical upright in a quaint home or grand piano on a large stage, but the full spectrum of pianos includes much more. Some are tiny, some are giant, and some are just plain odd. Whether readers are musicians, interested in the history of musical instruments, or experts looking to research pianos, Clinkscale Online will prove to be a useful tool to explore the dynamic history of this instrument. Created by Martha Novak Clinkscale, a musicologist and piano performance instructor, this online database is currently administered by piano technician Tom Winter and retired music teacher Michele Winter. On the page linked above, users can click "Search Pianos" or "Search Makers" to find items in the database, which can be queried by CEP number, maker name, date, place of origin, or even photos. Visitors can also "Submit Data" using the menu at the right side of the page, or find related resources such as a "Bibliography" or "Glossary" of piano terms. Clinkscale Online is supported by the American Musical Instrument Society.
