The Vario Digital Mute 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 having a real piano for the times when you don't have to be quiet.
The silent side of this piano is ideal for families with young children or night owls looking to practice late into the night.
