The Young Chang Pramberger series pianos are held in high esteem, particularly because of the involvement of Joe Pramberger, who is nos deceased.
It sounds as if your piano is well-maintained. If it is in excellent condition, its current retail (replacement or insurance) value is approximately $12,000. If you were to sell it, you could expect to get the fair market (private sale or auction) value of approximately 40% of the retail amount, or $4,800, depending on location and actual condition.
I hope this answer has been helpful to you.

Thank you so much!
The retail value is the amount you'd have to pay if you walked into a piano store and bought this piano, or the amount for which you should insure it.
The fair market value is the amount you could get if you sold it on your own to another individual. That amount usually runs about 40% of the retail amount. That's the rule retailers use. They will pay you 40% of what they stand to get when they sell it.
