Pramberger Pianos

HISTORY AND BACKGROUND

The origins of Pramberger trace back to Vienna in the early 1800’s when Joseph Johann Pramberger began building pianos under his family name. The company would grow and gain popularity throughout Europe under the direction of successive generations, remaining a family business for many years. The effects of WWII proved too devastating to recover from, so 4th generation family member Anton Pramberger immigrated to the United States to join several cousins and uncles in working for Steinway & Sons. Anton’s son Joseph eventually began working with Steinway as well where he would ultimately spend 30 years, culminating in a position at the executive level. In 1987, Joseph formed his own company, Pramberger Piano Ltd, with his own piano designs, with production taking place in Korea by Young Chang.

Today, Pramberger is owned by Samick, and pianos bearing the Pramberger name are built in Indonesia. Young Chang retained the original Pramberger scale designs, so Samick had to introduce their own designs. Samick currently manufactures Pramberger pianos in three levels of quality; the premium J.P. Pramberger Platinum series, the moderately priced Pramberger Signature series, and the entry-level Pramberger Legacy series.

The Legacy series pianos feature basic designs and cost-effective materials, whereas the Signature series instruments are a recreation of the older Young Chang designed Prambergers, featuring Canadian solid spruce soundboards and Renner or Abel hammers.

Samick invested considerable time and resources into the design of the J.P. Pramberger Platinum series in their attempt to offer a premium instrument, most notably in that they consulted extensively with several American piano builders on the designs of these instruments. Using old Bechstein scale designs as the blueprint and modern CNC machinery, these pianos represent some of the finer instruments coming out of Indonesia. Components include all-maple rims, solid white spruce soundboards, and a Pramberger modified Renner action, with Renner or Abel hammers.
