If space is at a premium but you don’t want to miss out on concert-like performance, our smallest grand piano Model 11 will fill your home, music room or studio with the Golden Tone. Its secret lies in the design and construction of the soundboard as well as the length of the strings and their tension — a secret that we have kept in our family for over 160 years since the birth of the Golden Tone.
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.
