Bosendorfer 170

5'7" Baby Grand Piano

Ludwig Bosendorfer drew up the first plans for this model in 1908 - making this one of the oldest (current) piano models in the World. The 170 Bosendorfer baby grand piano was designed to enchant the cheerful gatherings of the bourgeois and nobility, yet - more than a century later - the piano still enjoys immense popularity among the World's most discerning piano enthusiasts. Bosendorfer's artisans have accomplished this by building 85% of the piano out of Bavarian Spruce tonewood. Even the piano's rim 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 rim 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. The piano is then fitted with a custom cast iron plate, individually-attached strings, hand-wound (bass) strings, an open pin block (for unparalleled durability and tuning stability), a custom Kluge keyboard and a custom Renner action - the finest made in the World today.

The entire process takes six years to complete, but - at first touch - one can easily see why people of culture have loved this piano for over a century. The 170 baby grand piano is a true Bosendorfer Sound Experience.
