Does anyone know anything about the Bechendorff brand? I've seen references that it's made by Young Chang. I've found a 20-30 year old Bechendorff baby grand that I may be able to get for $1000, and it seems to be in excellent shape. I haven't discovered a site where I can look up the serial number and confirm the age yet. Any insight is much appreciated!

I've never heard of them, but the fact that their name is a combination of two of the world's best piano brands makes me leery. You might also want to consider driving a Jagualac, watching TV on a Sonasung, and them checking the time on your Patime Phillpex watch. wink

It is a Young Chang.

They were sold in Florida by the Fletcher organ chain in the late 80's to early 90's, before they stopped selling pianos.
