Facts & Information

Perfection in the art of piano making

Concert Pianos - our masterpieces


With the mighty conical detent beams made of pine wood, the Concert Series has the most stable piano detent of our pianos. In addition to the highest dimensional stability, the particularly elaborate furan resin process of the C. Bechstein Concert cast plate also ensures the best sound characteristics. Thus, these highest quality components form the stable backbone of our C. Bechstein Concert Pianos.


Thanks to its sophisticated geometry and the highest-quality materials, the special C. Bechstein Concert playing mechanism offers perfectly controllable playing in every phase of the touch. Combined, this ensures a precision of repetition that is unusual for pianos and comes very close to that of concert grands.


Together with the C. Bechstein Concert hammerheads from our own production and the elaborate duplex system, the tension-rich resonance board gives the C. Bechstein Concert Pianos an almost orchestral-like shaping ability and differentiability.

Each component resembles a work of art

The best hammer heads

C. Bechstein only uses hammerheads that are adapted to the model in terms of weight and dimensional accuracy. In-house development enables individual adaptation and optimization to the respective model in elaborate test procedures. The mass and density of the selected felt as well as the hammer cores are custom-made at C. Bechstein.

„When I can really identify with the instrument, I know the customer will like it.“
