This piano is 10 years old and in perfect shape. It was purchased for 6K 10 years ago. Any estimates on a market value?

I have played two such Bergmann's in my life and I don't know why the action is so tough.

thanks for any info,

rada

I just purchased the same. My research indicated that it was a entry level baby grand from Young Chang starting in '96 and sometime through the early 2000's. There is not much information on this Bergmann series available.

I found that the price these were purchased for was probably between %5000 and $6000. Considering that it is a very entry level piano without a known name and little information available, I believed that something under 50% was a price point for this depending on the condition, play, etc.

The one we found (see post just down a bit on the forum) was in like-new condition. There is not anything super exciting about it other than it is a "grand" and much newer. It sounds far better than the 60 year old spinet that we had but by no means is it a great piano. It is a stepping stone piano for us. I would not have purchased it with a mind to keep it for a long time unless it is just a piece of furniture, then the play and sound does not matter much.

I think it represented a good value. We purchased ours for $1,800. I probably would have paid up to $2,200 so that my total out of pocket was $2,500 with moving. Anything more than that and I was too concerned with any issues it might have and if I would loose alot of value.

My research saw many of these across the US posted for between $3000 and $5000 in the used market. Personally, I think all of those prices were too high.

Link to the info on the one I purchased

Thanks Matt,

I see one sold on e-bay for $2950.00......as a pianist that is not a piano I would ever buy....I don't know what someone was thinking when they built that action...you practically need a hammer[ ha] to play the darn thing. This particular piano is in perfect condition. Maybe some like the stiff action. I prefer a medium action....not too loose.

Right now, Matt's piano is priceless.

It's much easier to bash a Steinway than it is to play one.

Yes, Marty. I can agree with that!
