The highlight of the C. Bechstein Academy series is now even more impressive

Its newly developed acoustic assembly and refined action lend the successor to our classic Academy A 124 even more breathtaking sound and volume.The significantly longer maximum string length and optimised cast-iron frame design made it possible to improve the geometry of the soundboard and adjust the contour of the bridge to make the transfer of vibrations even more vivid. This maximises the sound and volume delivered by the popular, modern piano body with traditional elements in spectacular fashion.
