As nobody answered my questions, I'm answering them myself. Maybe someone will find my answers useful. A few days ago I went to a Yamaha & Kawai piano dealer asking the same questions. I don't play the piano so I took the teacher with me. 1. The

Certainly I'd agree with Ed McMorrow in that most of the Samick grand pianos I have played have been much nicer than most of the Young Chang grands I have played. Now, I haven't played a Young Chang made after 1995 because they seemed to stop importi
