Dear Technicians,

I would be interested in your experience with servicing YC Prambergers in churches. We are considering a purchase, but wanted to hear your take on their tuning stability, action problems, sticking keys, etc.

We're looking at a PG185, serial number 123500. Any help would be gratefully appreciated. I have already read Fine's book, talked to dealers, musicians, etc., but wanted to hear of those who work on these.

Thanks!

One of the best investments a church can make for any piano is a Piano Life Saver System:
http://www.pianolifesaver.com

While pianos in homes go through humidity cycling twice a year (heat turned on in winter, off in spring), pianos in churches typically endure 100 times as many cycles: the heat is turned on and off typically twice a week. This is especially important in harsh climates such as Wisconsin.

Additionally, church pianos are used for weekly performances, not just practice, so the need is high to have tuning stability and avoid action problems such as sticking keys.

Controlling humidity reduces the expense of tuning and action adjustments, and also extends the piano's useful life.

Thanks much for the information. However, Mr. Shuster, given your experience, even with a Damp-Chaser in a a Korean YC Pramberger (PG 185, eg.), do the Korean pianos hold up in your opinion, say, with a Yamaha or Kawai, or Baldwin, etc.?

Thanks,

Andy
