Hi All, I recently had a nice experience trying a fairly new Seiler SE242, an 8ft concert grand. For the size and age (almost new) of instrument it also seemed like a good value, price wise. How do these Seilers compare to the 7-some foot C Bechstein, Yamaha CF, Steingraeber (and similar) instruments? From what I am gathering Seiler is very good, but not the same league. Is that actually true at this level of instrument?

There are massive differences in all of the pianos you mention.

Very few companies manage a great piano in this range, As far as price, ignore the retail price and comparisons. If you like it, it's in your budget and it checks our, then go for it.
