Albert Weber pianos reflect the highest level of piano making from Korea today. Like a Hyundai Genesis it can stand shoulder to shoulder with it's Japanese competitors in quality and against most any pianos in tone.

Hi forealizst, and welcome to the forum.

What exactly is meant by that sentence vs. their regular models? At what point does a piano become a "handbuilt" one?

i hope you noticed i had quotes around handbuilt... i would guess it's a marketing term to suggest that this piano has had more individual attention than some of their other models. it's how the salesman described it to me. as the Hyundai comparison has come up, it's my opinion that Korea is very anxious to increase market share in the US, so, while i wouldn't necessarily label it "dumping", i think there are some good values coming from Korea.

on a lighter note, handbuilt could also refer to the minor repairs that i and my tuner had to do by hand.... i had some issues with the pedals. i would say the design was a little cheap and it was causing a severe rubbing noise. piano noises can drive me crazy!

as your a dealer and way more expert on pianos than myself, i'd be curious to know what you consider the top uprights under 15K.

thanks,
john

Hi John,

I'm not a dealer (nor have I ever been a dealer), and there are certainly many people on this forum more "expert" than I am. If you search my oldest posts, I have a thread about my upright search from 6 years ago for pianos near that price. Some of the models and prices have changed since then.

My local dealer has the mid and lower line Weber and Young Chang pianos in his inventory - in the interest of full disclosure, I've never played an Albert Weber model (or don't remember doing so, anyway).

I played a new W150 with Del's new designs (very nice btw). So it's more like an Accent with Del's modifications under the hood. I don't know if his designs have made it into the W157 yet.
