Some people will tell you that the old pianos are better than the new pianos. Especially if they are older people with old pianos.
Some people will tell you that pianos made in China are all bad. The real truth is that some pianos that are made in China are bad and some ( a very small percentage ) are excellent.
Some of the workmanship that is being done in China is excellent . I was in a factory in China recently with a very highly respected international piano designer and we experienced some of the very best piano craftsmanship we have ever seen.
This factory was manufacturing piano components for one of the most respected prestige piano factories in Europe. We were so impressed that I am now getting this factory to manufacture piano components for Wertheim pianos.
This factory is owned by one of the most passionate people I have ever met and his top engineer is a man of many years experience in the international piano manufacturing industry.
This is just one example of the quality of workmanship that is being done I China. I also visited a piano action factory , a keyboard factory and an iron frame factory and all of these factories are manufacturing components for German and USA piano factories and it is the high quality workmanship that these factories are producing that gives German and USA pianos a good reputation.
So have the best pianos been manufactured yet ????? NO !!!! I don’t think so. In the next few years we will see technology that will improve the tone and touch of the best modern pianos and tone and touch is what elite pianists are looking for.
Stay in tune for more news to excite your piano Experience.
