Dynatone Pianos – Never Heard Of Them

History

Dynatone Pianos have been around since 1987.  EMI (Electronic Musical Instruments) which was a part of a much larger group known as Korea Electronics Co., LTD also known as KEC.  In 1996, Dynatone took over the digital piano line from the World Famous LG to focus on creating a leading digital piano company.  In 2000, Dynatone separated completely from KEC.

In the United States Dynatone was known as an OEM company.  What this means is that any company could order a product and the OEM company would simply put the brand name that the customer wanted to use.  When Dynatone began to market more worldwide they changed their policy on OEM product and began to only manufacture and sell under their own name brand.  While this was a risk in some ways to Dynatone’s infrastructure it has proven to be a very smart move on their part.

Changes

In 2014 Dynatone began using a U.S. distributor for the very first time.  The reception in the United States has been overwhelming.  While Dynatone has grown their business in Europe as well as Korea and in other parts of the world, the U.S. has remained virtually untapped by them.  Marketing in the United States started in 2014 by Piano Marketing Group.

Piano Marketing Group has successfully launched Dynatone into a number of states and is growing by leaps and bounds.  While still relatively unknown it has a bright future ahead of it and should look for many exciting changes coming.

The Products

The models Dynatone offers are fairly comprehensive, Piano Marketing Group chose to only import a small portion of their offerings.  In this brand, you will find only 6 or 7 models.  I have decided to go through each of the models and show you what they look like and even some demonstrations as to what they sound like.

Each of these models are incredible in their own way.  I want to review each product in the coming weeks to show you how different each one is and perhaps you will be able to decide which one is right for you.

See You soon – From lovely Downtown Burbank, CA

I have returned

Thursday, May 12th, 2011

As many of you know, PianoSD closed last year and I have been working at finding the right fit for me and my family in the piano industry.

Bob Auletta of The Piano Outlet (www.thepianooutletco.com)  requested that I come to a small town called Nipomo, Ca. and take a look at the area.  When I visited the area I was so impressed by the people and culture of the town that I knew immediately that this was IT.  We have worked very hard to get the store ready and open and are getting ready to celebrate the Grand Opening of The Piano Outlet in Nipomo, Ca.  Bob is quite excited to be here and so am I.

Bob has been an icon in the music industry for many years and I am quite excited to be an employee of his.  He has left me the opportunity to build this business in any way that fits the community and would promote music and music education in the Central Valley Coast of California.  I am sure it is going to be a success.

As PianoSD begins a change from a retail site to a referral site I am hoping that you will be patient and go to www.PianoSD.com from time to time and see the changes that are being made.

Thanks as always for visiting us and please feel free to visit The Piano Outlet at 485 N. Frontage Rd.  Nipomo, Ca.  93444 or call us at 805-929-8901 for any special requests that you may have.

Piano moving is an art form

Saturday, May 15th, 2010

We have talked about some basics in Piano regulation, Piano tuning and Piano voicing this week.  I wanted to talk about Piano Moving and tell you some things that you may or may not be aware of.

While PianoSD uses Paul McCloud at Accutone Piano Service, www.pianoservsd.com for our all of our piano techinician needs.  We use Precision Piano Moving at www.PrecisionPianoMoving.net for all of our moves and heres a few reasons why.

A few of the things that have to be seen and realized about moving pianos is that it is important to understand where the piano is now in relation to where it is going.  For example if it is coming out of a home that is in a humid area or dry area it has to be  taken into consideration.

Precision Piano Movers located in the PianoSD building in Mission Valley, San Diego, Ca moves a lot of pianos every week.  We see them coming from very dry areas moving to very humid areas and vice versa.  When a piano is leaving one climate for another, or from a room that is cool to a fully sunlit room the piano needs to go through an acclimation time of up to three months depending on the extremes in changes.  After the acclimation time the piano should be tuned and if needed a regulation, and voicing would be in order.

Upright pianos are generally the easiest to move.   If the piano is going upstairs Precision would simply bring the necessary tools and equipment to do this.  Of course, some “upright” pianos are 36″ tall while others may be up to 52″.  This is  important information for your movers to know BEFORE they arrive to move your piano.  If the legs are decorative, they are wrapped up and blankets are put around the piano for safe keeping and then the piano is placed on a four wheel dolly and taken to the truck for transportation to its destination.

Grand pianos can be a little more challenging.  Most of the time one leg is taken off and balanced on the lyre that has been very quilted for strength.  It is laid on its side and stood upright.  Then the other two legs and lyre come off .  It is blanketed and put on a skid board, transferred to a dolly and then put on the truck for transportation.  The important thing is how many steps is it going down (or up) and what kind of equipment should be used needs to be understood BEFORE the piano is moved.

Regardless of whether the customer is using Precision Piano Moving or some other company, it is important to note that you should NEVER trust someone who is not a professional piano mover to move your piano and MOST DEFINITELY do not move it alone.  To many injuries and to many accidents are caused every year by people who try to do this by themselves.

Drop by sometime we would love to meet you.
