C.Bechstein is experiencing a resurgence in popularity among the professional piano buyer. Famous for making beautiful pianos that are renowned the world over for their tone, we are also notorious for turning our back on the factories of China and Japan. The C.Bechstein house believes passionately in the importance of handcrafting its pianos in Europe. The result? Whichever of our brands you buy, from C.Bechstein and Bechstein through to our very affordable Hoffmann piano, you know it has been made by a master in one of our two European factories. Every single piano is made with exquisite skill and an inspiring attention to our heritage that would simply get lost if transferred to another continent.
