The Brand That Sounds Too Good To Be True
Designed and engineered by Todd Scott, both a concert technician and a concert pianist, Norberg is a new brand that achieved the perfect balance of quality and affordability using genuine German & USA piano action parts that can only be found in some of the best and most expensive pianos in the world
The Issue With Modern Piano Market
The modern piano market is generally separated into two categories: The lesser quality designed to be affordable (Pearl River, Young Chang, Samick, Kohler & Campbell, etc) and the high end pianos designed to perform at the highest level (Steinway & Sons, Mason & Hamlin, Bosendorfer, Fazioli, Sauter, Bechstein, etc). Yamaha and Kawai are in a special category of its own due to its wide production line ranging from low to high tier depending on where the models are manufactured. Their lower tiers are made in Indonesia, mid tier and high tier are made in Japan.
The Most Affordable High End Piano - Too Good To Be True
Norberg dedicated their brand to be the solution to the modern piano industry. They selected the components from some of the best and most expensive pianos in the world, assembled them at the Glory Music Co. piano factory in Shanghai under the supervision of renown technician and lead quality control manager Barry Bradshaw. By doing so, they are able to create one of the best pianos per dollar spent. Competing directly with pianos that are 2-5 times the cost

Solution To High Cost Of Shipping To Alaska
As Alaskans, you probably are aware of the shipping complications of large items. We have had customers paying extra thousands just to ship a new piano up to Alaska.
We brought up this issue to Todd Scott, CEO of Norberg, informing him that, in order for us to be able to provide Norberg pianos to Alaskans at a reasonable price, we need to address the high cost of shipping. Through many conversations with the shipping companies and logistical personnel, we realized that the only way this would work is to order a full container of around 20-30 pianos, allowing us to provide pianos to the general public without added costs, unfortunately that means the number of pianos in each purchase order is limited. In addition, we are able to negotiate on drastically cutting down the pricing for 2022.
