The Golden Hammer
The Golden Hammer is the highest award bestowed by PTG. It is presented each year to one outstanding PTG member who has made a definite and permanent change for the better, by many years of outstanding contributions to PTG and the piano industry, for service and dedication above and beyond the call of duty. Candidates must have contributed more than 20 years of service and dedication.
The award trophy has been meticulously constructed since 1969 by a series of skilled members of PTG, including Bill Smith (1975-1997), Keith Bowman (1998-2012), and Nate Reyburn (2013- ). Many recipients have donated their trophies for display in the Jack Wyatt Museum, and those are illustrated here.
