The Vario Digital Duet system is designed and made by Bechstein in Germany and is exclusively available on all Bechstein models.
The Vario system uses optical key and pedal sensors to provide digital samples of Bechstein acoustic pianos to your headphones, whilst retaining the advantages of a real piano for times when you don't have to be quiet.
Exclusive VARIO App available!
The silent side of this piano is ideal for families with young children or night owls looking to practice late into the night.
The most common question regarding the silent piano is "is this a digital piano?".
Our range of silent pianos are all completely acoustic instruments; meaning that hammers are still striking strings to produce a sound and therefore have the benefit of playing a real acoustic piano, however, they also have a digital component that simply allows players the option to switch to a digital sound for "silent playing" via headphones.
The main features of the C.Bechstein Vario system are:
The Vario system utilises pedal and key sensors to provide a responsive, realistic sound. The display is a large touchscreen where all functions are easily accessed.
C.Bechstein have developed The VARIO App which integrates seamlessly into the VARIO Duet silent system. The App is extremely user friendly and works as a display to comfortably select different functions on the silent system. You can even save your favourtire settings directly in the VARIO element and it can be accessed even without the use of the App.
The Bechstein Vario app is available on all mobile devices/tablets with the Apple iOS and iPadOS versions 2015 or later and also for Android users.
Connectivity to mobile device/tablet via Bluetooth or USB-C cable.
