Made in America for many years before ceasing production in the 1980s, Story & Clark enjoyed a revival in the 21st Century when the Dongbei factory added them to their roster of entry-level grand pianos. This studio upright is a lot of piano for the money. The Dongbei factory that manufactured this piano enjoyed such a reputation for excellence in the piano business that they’re factory was purchased by a leading American manufacturer to make their pianos soon after this piano was built. So, if a well built, affordable entry-level studio upright is what you’re looking for, you couldn’t do any better than this piano. If your skills improve beyond entry-level, then use our lifetime upgrade guarantee to trade-up to a more advanced, more expensive piano. You will receive the price you paid in trade towards it with no time limit and no depreciation. So, whether you keep it forever or upgrade later, you can’t go wrong.
