In honour of the 2011 Liszt Anniversary, Steingraeber unveiled the ‘little brother’ of our C-212 chamber music grand during the Bayreuth Festival summer season.

Its powerfully rich tone comes mainly from very long bass strings on a similar scale to those of a chamber music concert grand. The designs of the C-212 and B-192 are so closely related that the two pianos have identical actions.

This grand piano will bring you unforgettable musical experiences at home and turn your parlour into a concert hall. Even professionals will discover a suitable partner in the B-192. Its use at the University of Music in Trossingen is just one example among many.
