Paul Bothner Music
Paul Bothner Music is a customer driven business and the family believes in nurturing long-term relationships with their customers. Bothners’ South African origins date back to around 1902, when Charles Bothner, a piano tuner by trade, set up shop in Cape Town. The business was soon importing and selling pianos. Over the next 50 years, with contributions from his wife and sons, Bothners became a countrywide household name.
