This piano was designed and made by Samick and is a 48-inch Samick upright model in all but name. Samick uprights (and their rival Young Chang) are staples of our inventory and some of our best selling entry-level pianos. Why spend thousands more of your hard-earned dollars on a comparable new piano when you can have this piano for the price of a cheap new “starter” piano that doesn’t possess a fraction of the capability of this instrument? Our specialty since 1983 has been gorgeous used pianos like this, available for a fraction of new retail prices. The thousands of happy customers who have kept us in business all these years all wanted what you want: the most piano for the least money. Think of all the things you could buy with the savings our pianos offer, all of which come with a 10-year warranty and our much ballyhooed lifetime upgrade guarantee.
