C Bechstein 118 Classic
The C Bechstein 118 Classic upright piano is a fantastic quality professional standard instrument from the same series as the world renowned C Bechstein Concert 8 which is widely regarded by many critics as the best upright that money can buy. The C Bechstein 118 Classic shares many of the same components and high end workmanship, but is significantly smaller and much more manageable in terms of size, so is ideal for smaller spaces.
Painstakingly handcrafted over a period of eight months by the highly skilled artisans of the famous C Bechstein factory in Germany, the leading company in the C Bechstein family, the C Bechstein 118 is ideal for pianists of all levels, from the ambitious beginner who simply wants the best and a piano to grow into, all the way up to the professional player who requires a top quality but compact instrument due to space limitations.
This “Classic” model features a contemporary style casework with straight edges and a modern overall design, and is constructed with many of the same principles as C Bechstein’s concert grand pianos, which are often regarded as some of the best instruments in the world. The 118 is constructed, regulated and toned by the same same highly skilled team in the premium section of the C Bechstein’s Seifhennersdorf factory, which gives the instrument a sense of effortlessness that will inspire all who play it, regardless of experience.
This piano is also available (at additional cost) with C Bechstein’s factory fitted “Vario” silent play system which can be added to this, or indeed any other W Hoffmann piano during the initial construction process. This innovative and highly regarded technology enables the use of headphones for noiseless playing, and mutes the strings in favour of high quality digital sampled sounds whilst still using the genuine acoustic action to retain the ultimate playing feel and control.
The C Bechstein 118 Classic can be ordered in a wide variety of different high gloss and satin finishes and colours, including black, white, walnut, cherry, vavona, and burl walnut, as well as a range of stunning and unique special finishes such as intarsia inlay.
