Robb were in partnership from 1822 to 1828, first at 154 Fulton Street and in 1828 at 641 Greenwich Street. After that date, both Robb and Mundy continued for a time independently as piano makers in New York, while Mundy remained at the Greenwich Street address. This piano has a compass of FF-c4, jack action with escapement, leather hammers, double-strings throughout, with tuning pins on the right, 1 pedal: dampers, wood frame, and a wood case.
