Other options? 

Not everyone wants the same modern black polyester finish and that is why C.Bechstein have pianos available in different casework styles as well as various finishes, ranging from white polyester to different wood shades. 

C.Bechstein pianos are also available with the Bechstein Vario Duet silent system. 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.

For further information on what is available, please contact our friendly piano department team to discuss options, lead times and prices.
