Question - Julianna Piano
« on: June 17, 2010, 02:03:13 PM »
We are looking for a baby grand piano, we have looked at many different kinds and have found a "Julianna" brand piano, the tone is very warm and beautiful, however we can't can't find much information about it - has anybody ever heard of this piano or anything positive or negative about it?
thanks.

Could this be a piano made in honor of the former Queen of the Netherlands?

esterfroheat, I had one of these pianos for two days. Poor quality instrument. Also asked around the city for dealer and technician experience with this piano and seller......, brutal stories. Our Chinese Phantom factory manufactured U-125 had multiple issues. We were told that we should not have paid any more than 2000 for this piano. We paid much more than double I am embarrassed to admit. Ridiculous.

I don't anything about Julianna pianos.  But your post tells me a lot about you ...

You rant in upper-case.

Your newbie status tells us you've not been here long enough to establish any credibility.

You use specious logic, citing personality traits of the seller as though these are somehow pertinent.

There isn't even any indication that you know (or possibly could know) the seller.

If you live in Ontario, Canada and are looking at this piano in a rural community south of Ottawa, you are better off buying a Kawai, Essex, Yamaha or anything else from a reputable dealer.

It is a stencil piano.

Not just a stencil piano. I know the owner of the business you speak of personally. He's been in business for over 40 years and actually has a great reputation. The Julianna pianos are made with premium parts like a solid spruce sound board, german made string and hammers and other quality pieces. But, like many other brands today, they are assembled in a factory in China. They are a great piano and Roy, the creator, has put a lot of time and effort into ensuring each piano has what he believes should be essential in all great pianos.
