The Colby Piano Company was established in Erie, Pennsylvania in 1859. With field offices in both Pennsylvania and New York City, Colby was fairly successful in the piano industry at large. They enjoyed a good reputation of building fine quality instruments during the turn-of-the-century era. Like so many other American piano manufacturers, Colby was out of business by the Great Depression.
