Young Chang is a Korean manufacturer of pianos and industrial piano manufacturing machinery, headquartered in South Korea. As one of the worlds largest piano builders they build for Essex (a Steinway designed piano), Bergmann (a best-seller at Michelle’s Piano Company), Schaffer and Sons, Cline, and others. Young Chang has more than 2000 full time workers, designing and building its upright and grand pianos, and the Kurzweil digital pianos and synthesizers. They assembled Yamaha pianos in Korea from 1962 to 1975.
Through advanced building techniques Young Chang has produced competitively priced instruments that have been placed at Stanford University, Palo Alto, Ca., Peabody Conservatory of Music, Baltimore, Md. and many prestigious music schools. They were rated “Best Buy” in Consumer’s Digest magazine. A large aspect of Young Chang’s business is selling manufacturing equipment to other piano builders.
Bergmann is Michelle’s best seller because of “bang for the buck.” Many clients that visit us for used pianos end up buying a new Bergmann because they are similarly priced, and have a 10-year warranty. They come in the most demanded cabinets and finishes: polished mahogany and ebony, plus traditional styles.
