August Förster 170 Grand piano in black polyester



To order

Hand made excellence from probably the oldest piano factory in the world. 

A large, high-quality German sound from a physically modest instrument.  Well worth comparison with the Schimmel C169 and K175 grands as well as the Bechstein A160.  This piano is beautifully finished in every detail using only traditional solid materials and needs so to be experienced to be appreciated.

Why August Förster? 

A very beautiful hand made piano with a Renner action finished in black polyester. Made with real craftmanship with age-old traditional methods.

The August Förster family tradition goes back more than 150 years. First Established in 1859, the company is now under the fifth generation of Förster family who, with a dedicated and experienced team of master craftsmen, build grands and uprights of outstanding German quality.

These pianos are 100% made in Germany and are fully certified by the BVK.

All August Förster pianos are guaranteed for 5 years.

Described in Pianist Magazine's buyers guide as follows:-

"Here we have a smart, confident but not ostentatious piano.  It is not for those who simply want to boast about the brand name or to impress with exotic woods and lavish brass fittings.

This is in the truest sense a musicians' piano; hit the keys and the sound hits back!  The Renner hammer hammers are pretty resilient and for the working musician, this allows a tonal range that never ends.  Perfectly suited to the nuances and precision of the most elegant masterpieces, the rough and tumble of prickly jazz or the dense, solid, stolid richness of late-Romantic piano repertoire...

The piano is for home use for those who know what is well made and value for money.  Indeed, it is for those who do not need large corporate interests to intrude on their music-making"
