130 T

The 130 has been our most successful upright for ninety years. In music academies and universities alike it replaces the grand piano. It is mechanically superior to mass-produced studio grand pianos, and it has a markedly fuller sound.

This piano can also be custom-ordered with chamber-music bass dampening, which allows for exceptionally precise ‘secco’ (dry) playing.

Twist & Change

This is the name of the two-pianos-in-one combination that changes the appearance of your upright in a jiffy: In this variation, rare woods show up on one half of the front, and on the upper and lower front portions of the piano, but the back is always in solid polished black.
