With the dropping of Vogel and May Berlin, wonder if there might be some possible bargains out on Schimmel dealer's floors?

Anybody know of any orphans out there?

There is a Vogel grand at Cunningham Piano Company, at least there was a couple of weeks ago. It's a very nice piano. No idea what the price is. I don't think that piano prices drop when a brand is discontinued, especially if the manufacturer is still very healthy, though. Why should they? It's certainly not the same as a dealership or manufacturer going out of business. And it's the same piano as it was before the line changed.

IME, prices do drop.

Even if the company is producing the same piano under a different name, I believe it's harder to sales pitch an orphan.

I have to believe that prices will drop on anything that is discontinued -- brand or model, unless its one of the rare products where it becomes a collector's item. I remember seeing a couple of people mention recently that they purchased Kawai RXs, including an RX-5, at amazing prices after the line was discontinued.

I'd love to have one of those orphans!
