Welcome to the Piano World Forums!

I'd like to see more piano industry participants here... smile

Best regards,

Rick

P.S. Per PW rules, you must state your piano industry affiliation in your member signature, although your forum name is rather obvious. smile

Oh, and one more thing, I’d encourage you to consider purchasing a formal ad here on PW. I also think that would be good to promote your latest products.

I have a question whose answer will not violate forum advertising rules. It's hard to tell from the website which of the YC/AW/W piano models are Fandrich designs. Is there a way to tell from the model #s or serial numbers?

I'd like to know who is representing Young Chang. It's a bit odd to consider conversing with a corporate entity.

Are corporations people too?

I didn't see it this way. Just because someone introduces himself to me doesn't mean I'll buy from him or am even interested. Wonder if anybody feels differently...

Accordingly, please allow me to ask these questions:

Why should someone consider a Young Chang in today's market?
What gives the piano an edge - if at all?
What makes the piano different from others?
Some of the grands have been recently re-developed by Dell Fandrich: I personally found them very nice indeed.
How about the larger grands, anything new?
How about the uprights?
Any new developments for tonal improvement?

Which pianos would you recommend worth testing and comparing against others at next January's NAMM in Anaheim?

Hoping these questions were fair and to the point.

many thanks

Norbert smile

Norbert,

Did you see the posting before it was edited (deleted) by Ken Knapp?

It was nothing more than an ad from a "corporate entity."

-- Actually, I would like to try one of the new YC's that Del has designed.

Thanks Beethoven986,

I just haven't been to a YC dealer recently. I curious to hear if there is any "Walter" in the tonal structure.

While I am not an employee of either Young Chang or YCNA—I am an independent design and manufacturing consultant—I can answer some of the technical questions you pose. Sales and marketing questions will have to be fielded by others.


Originally Posted By: Norbert

What makes the piano different from others?

Timbral balance, dynamics and tone.

I put a lot of effort into improving the tone quality—the timbre—of these pianos across their entire compass but particularly through the bass and low tenor areas of the shorter scales.

I removed all of the bass bridge cantilevers to improve energy transfer efficiency. I moved the bridges forward on all scales and floated the soundboard around the lower end of the bass bridges. Moving the bridge did shorten the speaking lengths moderately but it also dramatically increased the backscale length giving the bridge/soundboard assembly greater freedom of motion in the low bass. Moving the hitchpin panels further back on the redesigned string frames also helped to increase the backscale length though the low bass.

I have reduced inharmonicity in the bass so that the frequency of the shorter partials (higher harmonics) is closer to that of the fundamental for improved pitch identification. During normal play the cumulative result of all of these changes results in a tone quality through the entire bass that the ear—brain, actually—is able more quickly identify the pitch of the individual notes.

I also put a lot of effort into balancing the string scaling with the impedance characteristics of the soundboard system to make the bass-to-tenor transition as smooth as possible. In most cases this is now what I call “musically transparent.” That is, while a technician skilled at voicing (and analyzing the timbre of piano notes) can probably pick out the transitions, it will be the rare pianist who will be able to do so without looking.

All grands, large and small, use cutoff bars on the soundboard system. And all of the grands use inserts—a piece I call a “fish” due to its shape—in the treble sections to shape—and reduce the size of—the vibrating area of the soundboard.

In scaling the pianos I reduced the overall string tensions. This allows—requires—the use of lighter and more flexible soundboard systems along with lighter and more resilient hammers. This latter requirement necessitated significant changes in how the hammers are pressed. It is a lot easier to simply crank out heavy, dense hammers than it is to walk that fine between hammers that are too soft and mushy to be of any practical use and hammers that are too hard to develop the desired tone quality. Quantifying hammer performance—in short, putting a number on it—led me to develop a new method of testing production hammers for resiliency. (There will be more about this over the next year or so as I introduce it to technicians through the Journal and in seminars and conferences.)

The actions have not changed much. The geometry of the wippens was always very close to that of comparable Renner parts, now it is identical. The overall action ratio has been changed to lighten up the touch a bit.

Piano design features do not work in isolation; they are integrated systems that, at their best, should have a certain synergy. (Those who have attended any of my recent seminars will be familiar with my Design Triad philosophy in which I stress the importance of balancing all of the various elements of piano design.) All of the changes made to these pianos have been designed to work together (at least to the best of my ability to make them so). In terms of perceived sound pressure they may not sound as loud as their predecessors (or some competitive instruments) but this is the tradeoff you get when you reduce the amount of energy in the (mostly high-partial) attack power spike and put more of it into the fundamental and lower partials. In the smaller rooms in which these pianos are expected to be used power is never a big issue but timbral diversity is. The overall result is significant is some areas—the low bass, for example—and more subtle in others but the overall effect has been an across-the-board improvement in musicality; that elusive character that draws a pianist back to a specific instrument.

This is probably more than you ever wanted to read on the subject—but you did ask!

The large grands have also been redesigned. The market for small grands is much larger than it is for large grands so the emphasis has been on getting the smaller pianos refined and in full production. Some of the larger pianos are available in some markets but I don’t know which. As I wrote earlier, I don’t actually work for the company and I don’t follow marketing and production strategies all that closely. Someone from the company will have to respond to specific questions on availability.

The same design concepts used in the short grands are being incorporated into the vertical piano designs.

Obviously there will be some; I haven't changed my mind much on what constitutes good piano tone. Bearing in mind that the Walter designs were clean -- that is, they were completely new designs -- while the YC pianos were all redesigns of existing pianos. When you start clean there are things you can do that are impossible with any redesign no matter how extensive it might be. (This will also be reflected in the price....)

Hey Del,

In regards to the uprights, are the floating soundboards being implemented on the larger uprights too? I thought at the 48" and 52" range, the bass was supposed to be pretty big already and too much base could overwhelm the treble.

When you get up to the big 48" and 52" high grade Albert Webers, has much changed since your re-design?

Thanks!

Just noticed this thread. Too bad it looks to just be a quick promotional post. I have a 6'1 YC Pramberger (which I love). Is Pramberger still associated with YC?

Thank you Del for answering those technical questions. Going forward, we will be monitoring this forum daily and responding to all inquiries.

We are currently working on a website redesign as our current site has experienced some issues. Please know that we are working diligently to improve our presence on the net.

Young Chang has recently produced and published a brief video describing the new Delwin Fandrich redesign elements. It can be found on YouTube titled "Young Chang New Piano Design". It is our hope that this will help explain the newly redesigned Young Chang and Weber Piano lines.

Thank you for your patience. We enjoy hearing from you and welcome all comments and questions.

Depends on what you mean by "associated with." grin After Joe Pramberger passed away a few years ago, YC maintained the Pramberger designs - but the Pramberger "name" is now used by Samick.

Question for YCNA:

1. Is the old Pramberger JP-48 the same design and quality of materials as the Albert Weber 48" upright (before Del Fandrich redesigned it)?

2. Are the newly re-designed Albert Weber 48" uprights being shipped now?

3. What are the differences in design for the newly redesigned Albert Weber verticals in 48" an 52"? It seems when speaking about re-design, usually the focus is on the smaller grands and smaller verticals. I'm asking about just the 48" and 52" verticals.

All of the new verticals, including the 48" and the 52" (actually, it's closer to 51") will have sections of the soundboard around the end of the bass bridge that float. In fact, the overall design of the verticals share pretty much all of the new design features.

I wasn't looking for a "big" bass I was looking for pitch clarity and timbral dynamics.

Sorry if it seems that way. I delayed posting anything to this topic for some time. For two reasons. First, I find topics and posts that are primarily sales, marketing and/or promotional in nature out of place on this form. I try to avoid getting involved in them. I generally come in only when technical questions are asked.

Second, I'm not an employee of YC or YCNA and have no financial interest in whether they sell or not. My compensation for this project has been strictly "fee for service." Writing this stuff takes time and I don’t have a whole lot of it left to waste. So I tend to pick my involvement carefully.

But the questions were asked. And, while I receive no financial compensation for writing any of this, I did do the redesign work on these pianos. Some of the features that are going into these pianos are—so far—unique to these instruments and the various claims and counter-claims that go into the average sales pitch can be confusing. I appreciate the courage YC exhibited in being willing to step outside the normal “me-too” norms of what passes for modern piano design. I will continue to try to stretch the boundaries of the status quo for as long as I am able and I understand that sometimes that will involve explaining what is being done and why.

The same basic design principles are used in both grand and vertical designs.

Bass bridge cantilevers have been removed. The soundboards float for some distance around the low end of the bass bridges. How long this float is and its precise location varies with the height of the piano and its string architecture. The bridges themselves have been relocated for longer backscales. String frames have been redesigned. Etc.

All pianos, including the grands, now use extensive cutoff bars to reduce the vibrating area of the soundboard system.

Action geometry is being refined and new hammers are being developed. As we speak….

One thing unique to the larger uprights is the rearrangement of the action centers (spacing along the hammer strike line). I laid out a new scalestick through the bass and tenor sections to provide a bit more space between the bass and tenor sections. This allows for a straight hammerline; it is not necessary to raise the hammerline through the lowest few notes in the tenor section to provide for a damper of reasonable size.

None of the changes I've made were done to increase the acoustical power of the bass. They are intended to increase the pitch clarity and to better blend the bass timbre to that of the low tenor.

I've gone into this more in another post but quite a lot has changed between then and now. As I said there, the design philosophy of both grand and vertical are similar. Design details may differ but the principles stay the same.

Dear whoeveryouare,

First of all, thank you for posting your industry affiliation in your member signature line.

Secondly, a word of advice… it would be in your (and YC USA) best interest to use your real name. Many of the industry pros here do… for example, Bob Snider is a Steinway & Son rep and he has the guts and integrity to use his real name and can be addressed directly as a real person. To use a corporate name like Young Chang USA is rather out of place for an internet forum like PW, as Del mentioned.

Thirdly, you are very fortunate that this thread is still here due to the marketing overture that it apparently is…

By-the-way, my real name is Ricky Henson… no kin to Jim Henson (creator of the Muppets) that I know of… smile

Rick

I shall be looking forward for this.

Perhaps we can also compare notes at that time when playing the pianos. To me, this is what it's all about.

Notwithstanding possibly different tastes, "tasting the food" is always the acid test after all the cooking is done!

Hi Rick,

Thank you for your response. My name is Chris Cairns and I am the marketing lead for Young Chang North America. It was not my intent to overtly promote on this forum. Going forward I will monitor this forum for inquires and pass on any news/updates deemed appropriate.

I want to also thank Del once again for his participation in this thread.

Del, Thanks for all the detailed information and explanations!
It's interesting to learn about all the nuanced detail behind the design decision. I think I learned a lot reading through this.
