    A client was looking for a cover online and found Vanda King. I have come across the name, but know nothing of the quality of the product or service. Anyone out there have any experience to share with piano covers by Vanda King, either first-hand or second?

    Thanks,

    Alan

    According to a reliable source at Schaff, Vanda King buys their keytops and resells them to the public.  I also found out that their German piano keytops are made by Kluge and FYI, I just purchased 88 sets from them and found them to be problematic.  The color of their off-white tops are slightly darker and harder and more brittle than the last batch I bought a year ago.  The material chips easily after trimming with a router.
        The German tops that Pianotek sells are from the same source, Kluge, and according to them they are experiencing the same problems.  Each offer no solutions.  Sorry for the rant, but thought it was good info.  YMMV.

    Thanks for this, Mike. And thanks also for the input of those who chose to reply off-list.
