This piano is manufactured by the Silbermann Piano Company in China. The Silbermann factory is comparatively small, making about 1,000 pianos per year. Their chief engineer, who previously worked for Pramberger and Yamaha Pianos, personally inspects every piano before shipping. Under his direction, each piano is retained at the factory for 30 days for a final check and tuning prior to shipping.
The very reasonable price of this piano reflects the manufacturer's interest in increasing the popularity of this new brand-name in the United States. This piano is very heavy for its size due to the large posts in its frame and its full-size cast iron plate, resulting in a deep, rich musical tone.
