Piano guide

This online piano guide underlines the many advantages of piano playing and provides a wealth of purchase tips.

Price and quality

A high-quality piano motivates beginners and advanced players with its good sound and subtle action assembly. The excellence of materials, individually processed with care down to the finest detail, makes it incomparable to any lower-segment instrument. The making of a C. Bechstein grand piano takes more than a year of work hours.

It’s important to us to offer truly good instruments to all piano lovers, whatever their budget. The C. Bechstein group has developed a full range of brands and lines that deliver optimal solutions for all levels of requirements.

With C. Bechstein, Bechstein, the three W.Hoffmann lines and the Zimmermann brand, our product range includes a variety of instruments for all budgets.
