Dear Mr Tyler, There is a 2002 Schumann I am about to buy,

Customer Question

Dear Mr Tyler, There is a 2002 Schumann I am about to buy, it did look ok and most importantly sounded like that but upon researching on the internet it appears the logo of the one I would like to buy is different from the original one. Do you think it
should make me suspicious. The deposit has been paid, refundable they say, the piano is about to arrive tomorrow. There are 2 links, one is about the one i would buy:!usedpianos/cwww The other an original looking 122 schumann logo
looks like the original. Please help before paying 1000 pound sterling for a fake :-) tomorrow

Thanks for your question. My name is***** will be a pleasure to help you. Please do not click the RATE/ACCEPT/FEEDBACK button until you have an answer/valuation.Having looked at the links you provided, I do not believe there is a problem. Schumann pianos have been made by a number of makers in various countries. Starting from around 1979 they were made by Kimball and Samick. In 1990 they were made in the far east by Samick and are now made in China. I think the differences in the logo reflect the different makers that have made them over the years.
