I bought a Brodmann grand from Norbert at Heritage Pianos one year ago. Not only is it a beautiful instrument( Macassar wood with blonde wood inlays)it is very satisfying to play.The action responds to the slightest touch but it is also capable of delivering a thunderous tone when called upon. Norbert was right on when he so highly recommended this Brodmann grand to me. In my eighteen years of teaching piano I have never had such enthusiasm from students about the piano! Bravo,Norbert and Brodmann.

Myself I was torn between Brodmann and Hailun.
But when the local dealer sold their Brodmann 187 the day before I arrived (and I couldn't afford the 212) the equally as impressive Hailun 198, along with its gorgeous birds-eye maple inner rim, finally beckoned me.

Wow. I like that timber and finish. So much better than black. While I've wanted a piano for along time and finally have one, I'd never hankered after a grand (out of my price range, nowhere to put one and, fundamentally, wasted on me) ... but I'd love one of those.

This is great to hear. I just bought a Brodmann PE187 from Pianocraft and it will be delivered Thursday. I don't have the space and I don't play well and I don't care!

My grad student daughter is taking my couch and coffee table and the cats can sleep elsewhere.

First things first.

"...I don't have the space and I don't play well and I don't care! My grad student daughter is taking my couch and coffee table and the cats can sleep elsewhere. First things first."

A player after my own heart. Dump the couch; kick that nasty entertainment center to the curb; remove the television to some other room. However, bookshelves don't take up much floor space and help the acoustics.

That old Russian proverb seems to fit: "If you want money, buy a new purse." In other words, if you want something in your life, make a place for it--- a nice place, where it will feel at home.

For those enjoying to look at some less common finishes,
Brodmann also makes these, alas by special order only:

http://www.pianoworld.com/Uploads/files/IMG_2149.jpg

A brand new grand called V188 will reportedly be shown at the upcoming NAMM show:

http://www.pianoworld.com/Uploads/files/BrodmannV188.jpg

Not knowing much about this piano, but quite curious.

Finally, the new 9' concert grand with designation "made in Germany" by Steinberg company in Thuringia:

http://www.brodmann-pianos.at/428.html

Not meaning to 'plug' - just latest news involving NAMM show for those at all interested.

Apparently the new 9' grand will be used in a number of concerts on main stage in large piano exhibition area.

Norbert smile

It's about $ 100 cheaper if you take it without it... grin

Unless, of course insisting on this one:



That one again, is $ 100 more...

Resurrecting a three year old thread to announce you sell Brodmann is bad form, piling on is worse. Finally, wishing them well with their new piano is a bit belated, but I'm sure the thought is appreciated (if they read it).

I don't know if Andrew works for Melbourne Piano Warehouse or not, but it's highly questionable to resurrect an old thread just to announce that the store now sells them.

No, he really is looking for a piano and the Brodmann is one of the brands he's considering. I've been in conversation with him via PM so I know he's genuine.

The constant mobbing by a few here against Brodmann and some other makes like Estonia is becoming a bit ridiculous.

In a way it's actually funny: rest assured they don't work in the market place. thumb

In the mind of a few, there must be something very 'worrisome' about these pianos.

I would wish they would simply speak up and make their points.

Were I on the firing squad, I would at least make sure to have my facts behind me and aim at right target..

My question is about the name. Who was Joseph Brodmann? Did he exist, or was it just a name that was adopted to sound European?
I am not saying I am against this, even if it was just a sales tactics, but my thought is that while Chinese piano manufacturing already seems to be on the up, it will really come of age when manufacturers there will have no qualms of putting a Chinese name in characters on the fall-board.
