Steingraeber & Sohne B 192

The B-192 is the latest Steingraeber design and closely modeled on the Steingraeber grand C-212 and thus the 2nd descendent of the famous Liszt piano from 1873.

Description

The B-192 is the latest Steingraeber design and closely modeled on the Steingraeber grand C-212 and thus the 2nd descendent of the famous Liszt piano from 1873.

Very long bass strings on a similar scale to those of a chamber music grand are conducive to its wide range of sound. This piano transfers private homes into a concert salon; the B-192 is also well suited to discerning professionals and for use in music conservatories even in concert rooms.

In the Bayreuth Festival Summer of the Liszt Year 2011, Steingraeber presented the smaller brother of the C-212 design. Very long bass strings close to the scale of chamber concert grand pianos are the basis of its powerful, rich sound.

The relationship between the C-212 and B-192 goes so far that the mechanics of both pianos are identical!

This grand piano gives you unforgettable musical experiences at home and turns your salon into a concert hall. But professional pianists will also find a suitable partner in the B-192, for example in the Trossingen University of Music.
