I have a Young Chang upright piano that I use in my music studio every day and I highly recommend it as being among one of the best all-around quality pianos for both students and teachers to invest in. I have had my Young Chang piano for over 20 years and - provided that I have kept it tuned and maintained on a regular basis - it still plays and sounds just as well as when I first purchased it brand new. In the video below, John Ebata, with Cosmo Music, provides an in depth look at what Young Chang upright pianos are all about, including how they are built, the materials that are used in the piano's construction, and how it all contributes to the piano's outstanding sound quality, including its warm, rich tone and ease of playability.
Some of the features that you will find in a Young Chang piano include:
Spruce soundboards with the highest sound-transmission coefficient
For soundboards, Young Chang uses A-class northern spruce, which provides an excellent sound-transmission coefficient. Young Changs ingenious soundboard design includes a low-note portion shaped like a round speaker with creases, optimizing the efficiency of vibration and effect of resonance and creating a deep, rich tone.
Precise action that expresses the pianist's emotion more delicately
The three factors of beautiful sound in a piano volume, tone and quality depend on the precise action of the sound-producing mechanism of a piano. The action of a Young Chang piano, consists of 4,500 parts, each manufactured with an error tolerance of 5/100mm, and made of hard maple to resist deformation from excessive use.
A keyboard that conveys the soul of the pianist
Young Chang keyboards are made of wood with lower specific gravity but higher elasticity, giving the pianist a softer yet firm sense of touch.
Hammers conveying the dynamic expression of the pianist
Hammers are adjusted to strike the strings in less than 1/250 of a second. They are constructed with maple, walnut or mahogany and elastic hammer felt, providing a sensitive, dynamic response to the expression of the pianist.
Pin blocks made of 17-layer laminated panel to raise bearing power
The continuity of tone is emphasized when a piano is located in a concert hall or school auditorium. To ensure the bearing stress of tuning pins and maintain tuning stability, Young Chang pin blocks are made of 17-layer hard-maple laminated panel with layers glued at right angles.
Frames cast through the V-Process construction method
According to acoustic theory, piano frames must bear up to 20 tons of string tension. The frame, which also plays a crucial role in the alignment of strings, is produced through the V-Process, an electrical vacuum-casting method, in the Young Chang foundry.
Rims optimizing soundboard resonance
Round rims at the low-note portions prevent sound diffusion and optimize the resonance of the soundboard.
Young Chang offers a 10 year parts and labor warranty on this series of pianos and makes it transferrable to every owner, so when you decide that you want to upgrade, the resale price can be higher with a real valid warranty.
