52" Artisan Collection Upright Piano
Beneath the sleek, elegant lines of the 130 Bosendorfer Upright Piano's hand-polished ebony finish lies an exquisite amalgam of Viennese Craftsmanship and European timber which form the heart of Bosendorfer's iconic pedigree. Birthed in Wiener Neustadt (found just off the Autobahn South of Vienna), the 130 Bosendorfer Upright Piano has earned a prestigious reputation among its peers as "The Grand Upright" - an instrument capable of producing the singing voice and thunderous projection of a grand piano despite it's vertical shape. Bosendorfer's artisans have accomplished this by building 85% of the piano out of Bavarian Spruce tonewood. Even the piano's cabinet and frame are made with solid spruce. Much like a fine violin, this gives the entire piano a role in tone production - unlike other instruments whose manufactures think of the piano's frame and cabinet as purely structural or decorative in nature. This "Spruce Resonance Case" is made of only the finest Bavarian spruce and is naturally dried for five years before use. Then, like Bosendorfer grands, the piano is fitted with a custom-fit cast iron plate, hand-wound (bass) strings, an open pin block (for unparalleled durability and tuning stability) and a custom Renner action - the finest made in the World today.
The entire process takes six years to complete, but the result is indisputable - "The Grand Upright" Piano.
The grand sound of this upright is by no means a surprise since the very Bosendorfer Artisans building their concert grands design and craft the 130 Bosendorfer Upright Piano, bringing with them nearly two centuries of sound crafting experience.
