Pianos made by: Yantai Kingsburg Piano Co., Ltd., Yantai, Shandong Province, China

Yantai Kingsburg Piano Co., Ltd., formerly known as Yantai Longfeng, was established in 1988. It is located in a temperate area of northern China that is said to be ideal for piano making because of its moderate humidity level. The same factory, under previous ownership, made pianos for the West under various brand names for many years.

All Kingsburg pianos have been designed by well-known piano-design master Klaus Fenner, and scales have been further developed by a piano-design expert from a highly regarded overseas piano manufacturer. Components are sourced from around the world: from Germany, Röslau piano wire, Abel hammers, and Dehonit pinblocks; from the Czech Republic, Detoa actions; and from Japan, tuning pins and ivory-like mineral keytops. All pianos now feature keys of real ebony wood and come with a slow-close fallboard. Interesting design features include longer keys on upright models for more a grand-like playing experience, brass-bar duplex scale, and the company’s exclusive Tri Board solid spruce soundboard, which, in the taller verticals, is unattached to the piano back at the bottom, for better bass tone and improved tuning stability.

To continue improving quality, Kingsburg has also invested in computerized manufacturing equipment and advanced scale-design software. With these tools, the company says, its goals are to achieve a smooth, comfortable touch from the keys and action; accurate downbearing and crown on the bridges and soundboard; and greater harmonic resonance and uniformity of sound volume.

At present, the Kingsburg line comprises four sizes of upright and three sizes of grand. Custom styles and finishes are also available.

A key focus of Yantai Kingsburg is that the final factory preparation of the pianos be done in such a manner that the dealer can deliver an instrument to the customer’s home with very little additional work being required. To that end, the U.S. distributor’s Asian affiliate sends highly trained technicians to the factory to fully tune, voice, and regulate Kingsburg pianos to their high standards before they are crated for shipment.

Warranty: 12 years, parts and labor, to original purchaser.
