All,

I have seen a few Hyundai pianos around, but never worked on one. Got a call to service an upright (console) Hyundai. Are they Korean-made? Made by Hyundai- the car company or some division of it? Are they good quality -- compared to, say, Kawai? Anyone had "issues" with a Hyundai piano? Tuning stability? regulation problems? Breaking strings?
With thanks,
Brooks Grantier

It's actually quite difficult to find specific information regarding which factory a given piano with the Hyundai name on it actually made the piano. There is a short thread about it here: http://forum.pianoworld.com/ubbthreads.php/topics/2398785/Hyundai_piano_history.html

A bass string broke on a Hyundai I tuned over the summer. Just one string.
Haven’t tuned any Hyundai before or since then.

The piano had not been tuned in 10 plus years.

I have a U832 in my shop which is not a bad piano. But I serviced a smaller one that had great problems with breaking bass strings. The angle of the strings was too steep. The height of that piano was about 1,05 or 1,10 meter.

Worked on a Hyundai back in 1999, 2000...Was just as I thought it would be-- pathetic. Should've stuck to cars (though I had a Hyundai car back in the 90's and it stank too LOL- died a miserable death drowning in engine oil!)
Hyundai is definitely nowhere near a Kawai. Kawai is more along the level of Yamaha (somewhat like sister pianos).
