Price and quality differences

Price and quality differences

In buying a piano, price and quality differences should be considered together. Because often by upright or grand piano purchase the cheapest provider is not the most favorable in the long term.

Material selection, material maintenance, production process, the difference between individual workmanship or mass production - these criteria are reflected in the price. Do you want to play and practice with an empty sound on a mass-produced piano from an assembly line? Or do you prefer a pleasant sound, which was worked out individually on a one-off instrument? Or are you satisfied with a rather shrill and soulless sound of an anonymous production, made by robots or humans in a mechanical industrial process, which are not related to or have no time for sound quality? Even though the answers are obvious, these aspects are often not identified by piano purchase.

A manufacturer’s piano building philosophy is essential. How comprehensively does a manufacturer master this very complex issue? Is the main interest to produce cheaply or upgrade an inexpensively assembled instrument with a known name? Is there a sense of responsibility and pride to achieve the best results at various levels for the player? Bechstein's pride and glory is in offering customers valuable instruments. Selecting the best possible methods and choosing the optimal materials from the high-quality start with W.HOFFMANN made in Europe to the C. Bechstein-class masterpieces. Consciously listening brings the quality to light. Take time to compare. Do not be satisfied with half-truths. A valuable instrument from the Bechstein brand portfolio sounds wonderfully balanced, plays precisely and comes from manufacturing structures that intelligently combine the best research results for material, precision and competence with individual manufacturing. Compare price-performance in the aspects of sound, workmanship, touch.
