BERNSTEIN: 30 Years of Superior Piano Manufacturing

The name Bernstein has a heritage in the piano world which stretches well before World War I. However World War II saw the decimation of piano manufacturing in Europe as factories were destroyed or taken over to build arms. 
After the War, England and America led the way in piano re-establishment. The reorganisation of Japan by the Americans led to music taking on a Western flavour, with a heavy concentration on piano. In the late 1950's, South Korea turned its production strength to popular instruments. 
Unlike the Japanese, who endeavoured to manufacturer much of the piano themselves, the Koreans worked with the English and West German manufacturers for the supply of major piano parts. In 1961, the name Bernstein was re-ignited and linked this new breed of pianos with its historical past.
For over 25 years, Bernstein was manufactured by the Samick Company, recognised as a master in the art of piano production. This factory received the "Grand Prix Award for Quality" in 1983 at the International Piano Competition in Spain, among other accolades.
The Samick Company had a formula which was unique in this period of piano manufacturing. They commissioned the world's most respected piano designer, Mr. Klaus Fenner of West Germany, to design a new range of pianos. Mr. Fenner's design, combined with the sourcing the world's finest components, allowed Samick to produce a range of pianos which received outstanding acclaim internationally. The factory increased production to in excess of 120,000 pianos per year, making them the largest manufacturer in the world.
In benchmark French testing in 1987, the Fenner-designed Samick pianos took out top awards. Two models were submitted for testing and both were in the top four overall, with both scoring the highest category marks for tone, touch and keyboard. These are the most important elements of piano performance.
Of the three largest manufacturers of this period, the manufacturer of Bernstein was the only one using "Roslau" strings from West Germany, and a pinblock made by the German "Delignit" company. But it was the unique soundboard which set these pianos apart. Mr. Fenner revolutionised the manufacture of piano soundboards when he discovered that layering and laminating omni-directional spruce, then crowning it with pressure points, achieved a new level of tonal production, volume potential and tonal clarity. Each of the Bernstein pianos of this model range featured this design.
Today Bernstein Australia has partnered with the Hailun Piano Company; a powerhouse in the production of innovative, multi-award-winning pianos. Bernstein offers pianists the choice to own the finest piano money can buy, at a family price. Over 10,000 Australian owners cannot be wrong!
