Broadwood, John

(1732-1812) He migrated from Edinburgh to London and married the daughter of the harpsichord manufacturer to whom he was apprenticed. Broadwood (originally Braidwood) invented the piano and forte pedals, founded his own firm in 1827 and built the first six-octave grand piano in the world. The firm, which once led the world in the manufacture of pianos, still continues today, operated by his descendants.
