Platinum Edition Pramberger 48" Studio Upright, Young Chang
Platinum Edition Pramberger Upright-- recently appraised online to be worth $5,500-6,000!
This piano has served my family well for over a decade, and has been maintained by regular tunings, the latest in June of this year. The three pedals include a practice pedal, muffling the piano’s volume for playing after bedtime. The piano sits on four wheels, making it much easier to move. Its warm, medium wood exterior (mahogany or walnut) is in excellent condition, with hardly any visible scratches. There is a missing pin in one of the lid hinges, but it is easy enough to raise and stabilize the lid with the lid prop. A matching, cushioned piano bench with storage space for books is included. I’d also be willing to negotiate the inclusion of some piano books from my beginner days!
Here's a little bit on the manufacturer:
Joseph J. Pramberger, who served as the Vice President of Manufacturing for Steinway and Sons, began working with the Young Chang manufacturing company in South Korea to create his own line of pianos in 1987. In 2000, Pramberger debuted the Platinum Series- the company’s highest quality line; these vertical pianos were made with the greatest craftsmanship and attention to detail. After Pramberger’s death in 2003, Samick Co took over the manufacturing responsibilities for the Pramberger Company, making this upright one of the last Young Changs ever produced. The Pramberger Platinum upright pianos are compared to the Yamaha U series, as well as some Baldwin models. The Sitka Spruce sound board produces a warm sound.
I live in Maplewood, NJ and welcome interested buyers to come hear how the piano sounds! Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 973-997-6036 for more pictures, to arrange a visit, or for any additional questions. I have moving company recommendations as well.
