Since 1852 when Albert Weber created the first grand piano to withstand the rigours of the concert platform, Weber pianos have been at the forefront of piano technology. Allied to the use of modern materials and a commitment to the highest level of craftmanship, Weber pianos have become a byword for quality & reliability.

Some of the features include:

Spruce soundboards with the highest sound-transmission coefficient
For soundboards, Young Chang uses A-class northern spruce, which provides an excellent sound-transmission coefficient.
Young Chang ingenious soundboard design includes a low-note portion shaped like a round speaker with creases, optimizing the efficiency of vibration and effect of resonance and creating a deep, rich tone.

Precise action that expresses the pianist's emotion more delicately
The three factors of beautiful sound in a piano - volume, tone and quality - depend on the precise action of the sound-producing mechanism of a piano. The action of a Young Chang piano, consists of 4,500 parts, each manufactured with an error tolerance of 5/100mm, and made of hard maple to resist deformation from excessive use.

A keyboard that conveys the soul of the pianist
Young Chang keyboards are made of wood with lower specific gravity but higher elasticity, giving the pianist a softer yet firm sense of touch.

Pin blocks made of 17-layer laminated panel to raise bearing power
The continuity of tone is emphasized when a piano is located in a concert hall or school auditorium. To ensure the bearing stress of tuning pins and maintain tuning stability, Young Chang pin blocks are made of 17-layer hard-maple laminated panel with layers glued at right angles.

Frames cast through the V-Process construction method
According to acoustic theory, piano frames must bear up to 20 tons of string tension. The frame, which also plays a crucial role in the alignment of strings, is produced through the V-Process, an electrical vacuum-casting method, in the Young Chang foundry.

Rims optimizing soundboard resonance
Round rims at the low-note portions prevent sound diffusion and optimize the resonance of the soundboard.
