If you're musical ear favors the tone of a Steinway, but your budget
does not, consider this "like new" Vose & Sons baby grand built by Samick.
This particular piano is a prime example of how a piano should be
cared for. Meticulously maintained, it was traded in on a semi-concert grand
when the student progressed to that level. Our piano technician was very
impressed with its performance and condition.
The name Vose & Sons has officially been around since 1851;
however, the brand was taken over by Samick in 1989, who also builds the
brands Kohler & Campbell, Story & Clark, Wurlitzer, among others.
While Yamaha continues to be a popular and well constructed piano
overall, the problem for many is in its tone. Whether you're playing softly or
hard, the tone is always bright. This is not the traditional way a piano was
designed to sound.
The piano was originally designed after the human voice. In every
grand piano there is a treble, also, tenor and bass string range. When the
human voice sounds at a low volume, it is soft in tone. Accordingly, when
the voice is yelling, it is a much harsher and brighter tone, thus emulating
the full tonal range. The Vose & Sons (Samick) piano, as a Steinway, allows
you to do the same.
