description

The Bechstein name is synonymous with Germany’s finest piano building, often considered the European equivalent to Steinway in America.

 

Restored antique Bechstein pianos are very popular and highly sought after in both Eastern and Western Europe, but they are a bit scarce in the United States. Characteristic to most German built pianos, vintage Bechstein pianos have a very distinct tone quality often described as melodic and especially clear. This distinct tone quality is what promoted Bechstein pianos to concert stages in Europe during the 19th and 20th Centuries. In fact, Bechstein pianos are still one of the most widely used pianos on the concert stage in Europe today.

 

This piano is made in the classic Empire Revival style with octagon style legs and lattice cut music rack. The piano has been refinished in an authentic hand-rubbed black lacquer finish, and it looks and plays like the day it was built.

 

A matching bench is included, and the instrument can be equipped with computerized player mechanisms if desired.
