The C. Bechstein piano-making philosophy is unique. A key principle is that virtually all components contribute to the sound quality. Besides this, a holistic approach to the musical instrument as we emphasize the stability and durability of our pianos. The singing tone and the resilience of C. Bechstein pianos are indeed a point of reference. Manufacturing the acoustic assembly plays a key role in the entire manufacturing process. The acoustic assemblyis a complex system including the architecture of the soundboard, the back frame and respectively the rim-and-cabinet system in grand pianos and even the keybed, the basis for the action assembly.
