Samick Grandpiano SG172

Sun Oct 26, 2003 4:11 pm

Hi,

Has somebody got an experience with a Samick grandpiano (not world grandpiano). I have a grandpiano Samick SG172 and would like to hear about some experimental fact with a Samick grandpiano (quality, sound, problems,. etc).

Thank you very much and best regards. Kilavoud.

Well, Samick is a decent piano, I've played on a few. Not sure about the size though, but mine were bigger than baby grands. Anyway, I have a Steinway grand...not the biggest grand, but grand anyway. But, THE BEST! piano Ive played on is a BOSENDORFER concert grand....fucking amazing. I played the 18th variation from Rhaspody on a theme of Paganini by Rachmaninoff, and It was orgasmic.

Of course, the Bosendorfer was a $200,000 piano. Ugh, I can only dream!

Hi Ual747,

Thanks for the information about Samick as a decent piano and the 18th variation from Rhaspody on a theme of Paganini by Rachmaninoff .

Bosendorfer is expensive, but it is the Rolls -Royce of the pianos, and you have experimented it.

All the best. KIlavoud.

There she is!


Here's mine, not quite the Bosendorfer, but nice all around.


It's part of Steinway's Art Case Collection, called the "Northstar" piano.

I have a Bosendorfer concert grand at home, s/n 3391... built in 1908.
No idea what it is worth - fairly good shape.
Last tuning I did I was recommended to do a $6,000 job - new felt, to bring it to its best shape...
Anyone has an idea what such piano is worth...?
I got it in a public sale for some $2,000, repaired for $3,000 - was in a music academy...

I have 3 pianos at home - an upright, a Pleyel baby grand in very good shape.
Also have a Paraguayan harp (Guarani) and 4 guitars. Love music...

Depending on it's condition, and it's history (some pianos are more famous than others. The Bosdendorfer I played was their concert grand from their Bosdendorfer Workshop's concert hall), it could be worth just about anything. Doubt it would bring in 200 grand, but you never know. I'd get it appraised if I were you as you're probably sitting on a treasure.

Dear UAL747

This Bosendorfer was at the Academy of Performing Arts, Buenos Aires.
It needed repairs when I got it... For all they know it was given by a family of benefactors to the academy some 30 years ago, and used by students.

So it has seen better days. As a music lover, I do not look at the $$$, for me just a masterpeace of a piano... When I was a kid, my parents had an Ibach that they bought in Germany... My mother was a musician, violin and piano...
I had to suffer with her as a kid, playing Kreissler music, with my mother on the violin.
xxx
But when I got 18... I had to quit all that and study at university...
I still play 3 or 4 times a week for fun... classical... or tango music.
I dont read music much anymore, just play by ear. Anything you want...
Thank you guys, thank you, music is my other love besides airplanes.

Happy sonatas...
