I have sold various lines that are now owned by Steinway and for the most part, the product lines have lost many special models and the quality is not as the product(s) were when the companies were seperate. Where it does improve things is in the marketing whereby financing and promotion is better for the dealers. Example: Bueschers are now built in Asia and the marketing is aimed for price and not traditional quality.
Leblanc can survive, but as soon as it is folded into the Selmer pan, it will just become another badge. It is sad that many old lines are not what they were 50 or even 10 years ago. Today's marketing wants to put dresses on pigs.
