Description

A piano for all kinds of music, the C. Bechstein A 208 model is tailored to the needs of pros and amateur pianists in search of a premium instrument.

The C. Bechstein Academy A 208 parlor grand piano is suitable for all styles of music and for solo performances and chamber music concerts alike. It boasts a stunning dynamic range and a wealth of nuances, and stands out for its incredibly balanced and precise action. Such high-quality characteristics at an accessible price make it easy to see why this model is coveted by conservatories the world over.

Carefully selected materials

As with all Bechstein instruments, the careful selection of the materials is an essential factor in the success of the A 208 parlor grand piano. For example, mountain spruce, an excellent tonewood, is used for the soundboard and its ribs, while the back posts are made from high quality pine. The other components of the case are made of crossband veneer using massive wood. The iron plate cast in sand achieves an excellent resistance to tension, and optimizes the keynote. The integrated capodaster strips and duplex scales play a major role in the rich and colorful sound of the treble strings, while agraffes with a special design limit the speaking length of the middle and bass strings. Both the strings and the tuning pins are made of the finest materials.

A parlor grand piano rooted in the rich Bechstein tradition

The C. Bechstein R&D department developed the premium Bechstein pianos taking into account the brand’s great tradition. Accordingly, all Bechstein instruments stand out not only for their wide dynamic range and noble voice, but also for their professional-quality action that boasts special hammerheads made by C. Bechstein, Germany.

Excellent piano repair service
Read More
My piano needed a repair to the polyester finish which I was very unsure about but Andy from the repair workshop was so friendly and helpful. The quality of the finish is perfect and I couldn’t be happier. The piano was collected from my home in Devon, repaired and delivered back to me in a very quick turn around time.
