A rich bass full of depth and clarity harmoniously paired with a powerful middle range, supporting a warmly singing treble – our Model 10 is the smallest model fitted with the Aliquot System. This features a fourth string in the treble section, which is not struck by the hammers but resonates in harmony to spoil the player with the exceptional richness and comforting warmth of the Golden Tone that has been inspiring composers, pianist and music lovers since 1853.
The keyboard is the component through which the pianist expresses their musicality and connects with the piano. With over five-and-a-half thousand moving parts within the action and damper structure alone, utmost precision is required to enable a responsive touch from gentle pianissimo to vigorous fortissimo, whilst retaining full control. To achieve excellent stability, the key bed is manufactured of alternate layers of Red Beech and German Pine, whereas the keys of our instruments are made of fine Bavarian Mountain Spruce and high-density Ebony. White key tops are made of acrylic. Height and depth of touch are meticulously weighted and adjusted for ultimate precision and control.
The iron frame is cast in a quartz sand mould using traditional methods. To withstand the enormous tension of nearly twenty tonnes, the design of each frame is precisely calculated and manufactured. Each frame is seasoned outside for two years before being sprayed to a high quality-finish and individually fitted to an instrument.
Each piano is made to order, therefore any bespoke finishes or personal touches can be specified to suit your taste or requirements. From stately veneers and hand-carved marquetry to the most innovative and modern creative forms, Blüthner will help you realise your aesthetic vision.
