Our company


Our history

In April 1937, Juan Bansbach Küpfer arrived in Costa Rica by boat to restore the tubular organ of the Metropolitan Cathedral of San José. Since then the main mission of the company has been that  we share the happiness of living with music, with the vision of building a better society through music ...  a Costa Rica in harmony.

BANSBACH-AKUSTIK  is a highly specialized Bansbach business unit focused on providing high quality Audio, Video and Control integration solutions.

Our purpose

Our purpose and values are the enduring principles that guide us and help us decide on questions small and big.

We firmly believe that people who are close to music are happier and have fuller lives. Life must be lived in harmony. Musical harmony, social harmony and in harmony with the environment.

Our values

We do business with INTEGRITY

We always seek to demonstrate the highest standards of ethics in business and with respect to our customers, suppliers and the government.

We seek QUALITY in everything we do

Quality is our way of being. It has always been part of the DNA of the company. We hope that our products, people, processes and strategic partners are an example of quality.


Our way of being is to always challenge ourselves and each other to be better, provide better solutions to our clients and find better ways to achieve our mission.


We are very clear that the true owner of Bansbach is the customer. He decides if we die or survive. For this reason, we always seek to deliver the highest possible added value and create positive long-lasting experiences.


BANSBACH is a group of organizations and units that work closely together. Founded in 1937 when Juan Bansbach Küpfer arrived in Costa Rica, with very few colones, but with great working capital, integrity and desire to build a better world through music and its benefits.

Since then the company has grown and diversified. Bansbach today is made up of a chain of music stores distributed throughout the national territory of Costa Rica and Nicaragua.


The company also has a department specialized in wholesaling to other retailers and integration companies. This allows us to maintain direct access to manufacturers and thus be able to offer greater after-sales service and access to spare parts.


In the early 1970s, the Bansbach Academy of Music was born. Today there are four centers between Costa Rica and Nicaragua with a total student body that exceeds 1,300 students. We believe that actively participating in the world of education helps the company to maintain its mission and purpose.


Bansbach is and for many years has been the Authorized Technical Service Center for many of the brands we represent, such as: YAMAHA, SHURE, ROLAND, SHURE, among many others.


For more than 25 years, Bansbach has developed a highly specialized business unit called AKUSTIK (German word). This department specializes in the design and integration of high-end Audio, Video and Control solutions. With more than 300 satisfied customers in very diverse segments, Bansbach-Akustik has become one of the integration leaders and a benchmark in the field of HIGH-QUALITY INTEGRATED AUDIO AND VIDEO.
