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.
