The unique sound characteristics combined with a highly responsive action make these pianos compatible with all genres and abilities, perfect for beginners to professional pianists alike!

This instrument is available in two different casework designs; Imposant or Style. The Imposant (see below) has a more modern design with straight, clean edges whereas the Style has a more elegant, traditional style with rounded edges (see the walnut example above).

Why we love it!

This model has been a long standing favourite amongst the staff of C. Bechstein Manchester due to its wonderful warm tone and sonorous bass. We love how beautifully responsive the touch is and how this gives you plenty of creative freedom for your preferred playing styles. It is an absolute delight to play!

As Pianist Magazine says, it is a piano that:

“presents players at all stages of musical enjoyment with a German masterpiece that is within reach of anybody looking to invest in a piano for life.”

In addition to the standard black polyester, we also have the Academy A-124 available, in our showroom, in black with the Vario Duet silent system and also in a Burr Walnut Polyester casing.
