You want to buy a piano? We have made the impossible possible: In today's time when many customers are watching their money, yet often when they buy a piano, accept unconsciously and unintentionally compromises in sound and quality craftsmanship, we have the courage to break new ground. Building an affordable piano for which we, Bechstein, can vouch! Our answer to all mass production pianos is W.HOFFMANN - The Sound of Europe. Working in our new European factory is a team of professionals, piano builders, carpenters, wood engineers from Europe. People whose European sound tradition lies in their hearts and blood. Instead of making a soulless piece of work, they are proud of their holistic traditional craftsmanship. We have invested a lot of money in building this new assembly plant, a lot of know-how from our German Development Department for upright and grand pianos.A daring step in a market that is overflowing with Asian imports.
W. HOFFMANN Vision is the entry level. Good quality, nice feel, balanced tonality, rounded and harmonious. From the smaller piano for the beginning to the inexpensive concert upright piano or the affordable grand piano. With the size you are open to all possibilities, depending on your ideas about sound volume and size.
W.HOFFMANN Tradition, the next higher class. More detailed work, more artisanal elaboration of each instrument. For higher demands regarding rich, romantic sound and even more professionalism in the action.
The international successful W.HOFFMANN brand was founded in Berlin in 1904 and was acquired by C. Bechstein in 1992. C. Bechstein's "German PIano Making Research, Develpment, and Quality Management Centrer", the only institution of its kind in the world, designed the current W.HOFFMANN instruments with state-of-the-art piano-making skills.
Both lines come from the Bechstein factory in Hradec Králové, Königgrätz, just two hours drive from our facility in Saxony. This provides a direct connection of both factories.
W.HOFFMANN - a market success from the beginning that has been received so enthusiastically that production capacity had to be increased. Meanwhile, the newly designed brand is a huge success worldwide. Quality from Europe - a true alternative to products from Asia. You can buy your W.HOFFMANN upright piano with confidence in Bechstein.
