Here in Chicago, we've been surprised to hear some consumers indicate that it was their understanding Steinway "makes" the Christofori or that Steinway has ANYTHING to do with Cristofori. All of the other pianos sold by Steinway dealers are manufactured by other companies.Boston is made by Kawai (Japan), Essex is made by either Young Chang (Korea) or Pearl River (China) and the Cristofori piano is made by Sejung (China), who incidentally also makes many other brands.Manufacturer brochures don't make your shopping efforts any easier either when it comes to origin of manufacture.You won't see "Made in China" emblazoned anywhere on a brochure.Anyway, why buy a private label Sejung product at a higher price from a high-priced Steinway dealer when you can usually get a George Steck, Falcone, or other Sejung product cheaper.Chinese-built pianos from Dongbei, or better, Samicks and Story & Clarks and other non-Chinese imports seem to be superior for the same money. Ask the experts like Bear and others who post herein. I have never been pleased with any Sejung product; lowest spectrum of Chinese-built pianos IMHO.I have never been pleased with any Sejung product; lowest spectrum of Chinese-built pianos IMHO.

When tuned and prepped properly the result is often astounding.
You have tremendous street cred, Glenn, so I hate to differ with you. Since you quoted Larry Fine: His book claims Sejung products are at the LOWEST category for pianos. See: piano book larry Note that Chinese pianos produced by Sejung and Dongbei are at level 4D, the absolute lowest of about 13 levels where pianos are rated 1A through 4D.

Onestone, better play some more ASC pianos before you make some absurd comments like these.
