Piano player Coulombe expert since 1930

Piano Player expert since 1930 History of Pianos Coulombe:      Piano Player expert Henry Coulombe began his career at the age of 14. He served his apprenticeship installation and repair of piano player in Donat Langelier, which was located on Ste-Catherine. At the time the house Langelier distributed several brands such as pianos, Langelier, Pratte, Strathmore and others. During the 30’s, Mr. Coulombe returned to studies at the Institute of Montreal Teccart to learning electronics, because at that time electronic organs made their debut on the market. More over, the house provided the Langelier Connsonata famous organs in many churches and religious congregations. On the death of Mr. Donat Langelier in the mid 60’s, Mr. Coulombe continued his career by specializing as an electronics technician for the house Langelier Valiquette owned by the Langevin brothers. In the early 70s, he founded Service d’orgues Coulombe enr. It was a great opportunity for him because the leaders of Langelier-Valiquette borrowed a new way to distribute a new entrant into the market; the now famous company Yamaha piano. Henry and his company so became contractor for Langelier-Valiquette in repair and maintenance for Yamaha organs, and Connsonata conn. In the mid 70’s, Mr. Coulombe noted that demand for the restoration of piano player were ever increasing. So he decided to include the repair service of piano player and harmoniums in his company. At the same time, he initiated his son Serge to restoration of piano player. The latter made it his specialty … today. Over 80 years, Henry and Serge abandoned the repair of organs to devote themselves entirely to the restoration of piano player and harmoniums. Together they formed a new company called Pianos Coulombe et fils enr.
