Bechstein Academy A208 Grand Piano

The series with its origin in the name: BECHSTEIN Academy grand pianos were established to offer music schools worldwide high quality instruments at an affordable price. Thus, the BECHSTEIN Academy grand piano A.208 is found today in many music schools and conservatories. However, since a long time, the model has also proven itself in countless households. As with all instruments in the series, for BECHSTEIN Academy grand piano A.208 the selection of materials is also crucial to the success of the instruments. For example, back posts are made from high quality pinewood, ribs and sounding board from tone wood (mountain spruce). Other body parts consist of sturdily glued solid wood with corresponding veneer seals. In the BECHSTEIN Academy A.208, high-quality cast iron plates formed in heavy sand are highly resistant to pressure and support the basic sound.The cast in capodaster strips in the treble and the duplex scale affixed behind the soundboard-bridge support a complex, colourful soundspectrum. In the middle tones and bass, the speaking length of the string is defined by special agraffes. Strings and tuning pins are made from the finest materials. Even those who are not interested in the details in the art of piano-making will appreciate the sound effects and love the large range of sound colours and dynamics. The BECHSTEIN Academy A.228 grand piano is thus suitable for all ranges of repertoire.
