Grahl & Nicklas

The Frankfurt Music Wholesaler

About us

Established 1954 by the two music dealers, Hans-Lothar Grahl and Hans Nicklas, the Frankfurt music wholesaler Grahl & Nicklas soon proved to be a competent and reliable partner of music business.


From modest beginning in post war Germany, through expert knowledge and dedication, grew a company which made reliable and prompt delivery of sheet music to its business.


Jürgen Grahl has been leading the company since 1985 and has already paved the way for the next generation. His daughter Christine Pfletschinger joined the company in 1997 and together with musicologist and sales manager Christoph Becker, she secures the future of the family enterprise.

In the eighties Jürgen Grahl, as a forward-looking businessman, already invested in the first computer system. Today the company operates a modern database system which manages more than 590,000 editions of about 3,000 publishers. 120,000 items are kept in stock constantly – and the amount is increasing daily! This impressive knowledge is made available to music and book dealers by means of web based computer application GN-online which serves not only as a database but also encompasses an easy to handle order function.
